Crepe Love

The Paris Creperie is an adorable, snug hole-in-the-wall on Harvard Street in Coolidge Corner. When I lived in Brookline, I frequented this place quite regularly, always bringing any out-of-town guests there for a treat.

The walls are lined with pillow-covered benches, and there is a hefty supply of magazines for all tastes. One of my favorite features was the tiny bathroom, tucked away in the back of the prep area. To use it, one has to navigate through the maze of employees and supplies, but the behind-the-scenes view is worth the awkward trek.

Ham, egg, and cheese crepe.

I usually have the "Quirky Albuquerque," which consists of mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and Gruyere cheese.

They have an amazingly inexpensive menu of smoothies, ranging from the fruity to achingly sweet (the Nutella frozen hot chocolate is my favorite!) Also essential are the dessert crepes -- a friend exclaimed of the brown sugar crepe, " it's what pancakes are supposed to taste like but never do!"

Although their website provides directions to a location on Cambridge Street in Boston, I think that particular venue is closed. The one I review here is at:

278 Harvard St
Brookline, MA 02446

I want some crepes. I think I will come to Boston to visit crepes. And maybe Laura.
