Suzette Creperie (Part 2)

(Original Review -- May 2011)

I admittedly got real harsh on this place when I tried this place last May. At the time, they were on NE Alberta St., but since then, Jehnee has ditched the cart and opened a true brick-and-mortar spot near SE 33rd and Belmont. With some time to kill -- and a crepe craving -- I gave this place another go.

I really liked the interior as I walked in. It's got that awesome contemporary elegant bar feel, yet retaining that homey nature with various pictures on the wall. It's also much more spacious than the house on Alberta.

I took a seat in the back of the house, and the panda was going savory on food choices this time.

I started with a cup of French Onion soup ($3), among the best I've had. Onions beautifully broken down to that caramelized state. The rustic, piping-hot soup melted the cheese and allowed me to break the bread on top with my spoon.

The "Goat Fig Pig" ($7.50) was probably the best balanced crepe I've ever had. Prosciutto, marsala-soaked figs, and goat cheese fill a buckwheat crepe, topped with creme fraiche. Little bits of salty, savory, sweet, tangy, and creamy made me one happy panda. No one item overpowered the other.

Friendly service and a very reasonable lunch price tag for such amazing food quality. I'm definitely happy I came back. Since they do make their own ice cream, I guess a sweet crepe may be in my future again!

Check this place out! 8.75/10
