Have to admit I was a huge fan of the Magic Pan, although I was just a kid when we used to go there. I liked the crepes more than the fillings, and that's still my favorite part. I think La Frite's are decent, as are Figaro, but not the same. Dusty's are often tough and cold. In other words, crepes as delicious and cheap street food, the equivalent of great taco truck tacos, but crepes, get it? Anyone??

  1. I really like the chicken crepe at Bistro du Soleil in Playa del Rey. Also in the area is KC's crepes on Lincoln near Manchester. I've never been, but Cafe Crepe on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica looks pretty good, the menu is fairly extensive.

    1. I'm not that into crepes but my niece, who is, loves the crepe place in the 3rd and Fairfax Farmer's Market. She doesn't live in L.A., but makes sure to get there when she's in town.

        Oh yeah, forgot about that, thanks.

          My favorite crepe here at the Farmer's Market is La Poissoniere -- smoked salmon and egg for a wonderfully savory crepe.

      2. There are good crepes in a little hole in the wall in a strip mall on Sawtelle just north of Olympic on the east side of the street. The owner has a bunch of strange rules printed on the wall, but there is a large selection of crepes, the food is fast, and it tastes pretty good.

          The so-called Crepe Nazi is no longer my goto crepe place in the Sawtelle area - he uses pretty blah ingredients and all the rules just seem an unnecessary imposition on what should be a pleasurable process. There is a new crepe place - equally hole in the wall - around the corner, on Olympic, between Sawtelle and Corinth. If you are looking for either sweet or savory crepes in the West LA area, that is my current selection. Maybe called Crepes Dusigne???

        2. If you are ever in the Sherman Oaks mall (the Fashion Square or whatever it's called), there's a very good crepe place next to the Massis Kabob -- truly a shining light in what would otherwise be a ridiculously banal food court.

          1. Le Creperies "di pollo" crepe is fantastic. Garlicky cream sauce, mushrooms, large chunks of chicken... yum. Cinnamon/sugar crepe for dessert...
