Crepes in the City

While exploring the U street neighborhood, I found this small restaurant called Point Chaud Cafe at 14th and S. What really lures you inside are the crepes cooking in the window for everyone on the sidewalk to see.

Inside the restaurant, it's both cozy and modern, yet still has a neighborhood feel. You order at the counter and minutes later they're brought to your table. The menu lists a great selection of savory and sweet crepes, which come inside a whole wheat or regular pancake, but you can also customize your own.

To give you a taste of what they serve, I had the, "DC Brunch Special" which was turkey, cheese, eggs, mushrooms, avocado and tomatoes. It was delicious. Their sweet crepes are amazing as well -- how does a Chocolate, Blueberry, Blackberry, Strawberry & Raspberry crepe topped with whipped cream sound to you?

As if that wasn't enticing enough, the prices are great too. A cheese crepe with Swiss, Cheddar, Monterrey Jack, Ricotta or Feta is only $4.50! Their coffee is also the cheapest around at $2.00 (it's the Italian brand, Illy, which they advertise on the door of the cafe).

I seriously recommend this place if you're looking for a different, delicious kind of brunch in the city. Stop peering inside, and go check it out!
