Vive la crepe, which is sold at stands all over France. But here in Tucson I think the only creperie place (which I know of) is Cafe Zope, 344 N. 4th Avenue (SE corner of E. 7th Street). They describe their crepes as the “most delicious, scrumptious, awesome, super fantastic, innovative crepes (European pancakes filled with yummy sweet or savory stuff).”
They have a wide assortment of sweet crepes like the kiwi-strawberry one pictured, as well as cinnamon sugar, apple sauce & cinnamon, Nutella (with banana or strawberry), lemon juice sugar, fresh fruit, pear/apple/brie & honey, etc., etc.
Nutella is a habit-forming chocolaty, hazelnut spread.
Then you can also try their Savory crepes such as the one I did: roasted chicken/lingonberries/spinach/tomato, served with a demitasse-sized cup of soup, and fresh greens. Next time I’ll try the chicken/pesto/tomato/spinach one for lunch or brunch. Or the salmon/chive cream/cheese roll crepe. (If you don’t know what lingonberry is, go try it out).
They also serve Swedish crepes and breakfast ones as well, and of course coffee,tea,espresso,chai latte,hot chocolate,Italian sodas,juices.
It’s also a cute coffee shop with 10 tables inside and 3 counters, 5 tables & a bench outside in their outdoors patio in the back. Black/white photographs adorn the pale pastel green or yellow walls, with wooden floors. I loved the 2 skylights overhead in this remodeled espresso coffee shop.
You can win a free crepe by going to their Facebook page and just hitting “like”.
