The Crêpe Bistro was a great crepe restaurant that had pretty good fondue too and amazing French onion soup that Davisites lament about the lack thereof to this day. It was in the E Street Plaza business section, which suffered in a fire a few years back, temporarily closing most of the businesses in this block. The Crêpe Bistro was ultimately a victim of this blaze.

On each table was a wooden block printed on each of its tapered sides with the Eiffel tower. There was a hole in the top and on each of the sides. When you placed your order they would give you a flag to put on the tower.

The manager of The Crêpe Bistro now operates La Crêpe at the Silo, with the original owner as well!

(far and away better than Crepeville) Almost any time I see a Niçoise salad on a menu I order it hoping for one like they used to serve here and have always been disappointed.
