The Story: Ah, crepes and carts. Ooh-la-la. They go hand in hand so well, like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, or Paris and the Springtime, or Bananas and Nutella – just one of the offerings I recently sampled at this bright daffodil yellow cart.
Crepes are the perfect grab and go food – here they are folded into neat triangles and wrapped in paper à la the French way using white flour (in lieu of traditional buckwheat found in some French creperies). Stuffed with classic offerings such as ham & cheese, spinach & artichoke with cheese, or tomato basil, these make a perfect light brunch or lunch, or a substantial snack. More inventive fillings include a veggie tempura with sweet and sour sauce, peanut sauce chicken, or wasabi shrimp.
Dessert crepes are decadent and hard to resist: Warm apple pie served with vanilla ice cream, Bananas Foster crepes (in rum sauce), or a simple crepe “your way” with ingredients such as lemon sugar, jams, Nutella, sweet cream, apples…the list goes on…
Like all carts at the Mississippi Marketplace cart pod, there’s covered seating available, and you can take your crepe next door to PROST! for some crepes and beer, or wine, or whatever other beverage you wish.
