Looking for fast crepes to go, Parisian style?

Looking for restaurants, or food carts/trucks that make crepes to go, like you can get in Paris. I'm not looking for a sit down restaurant, I want to stand in a line, order a crepe, watch the person make it, then eat it out of its paper wrapping while I walk down the street. There is, or used to be, a place on west 3rd st where you could order crepes from a window of a restaurant. Anyone know of anywhere else like that? These seems like the ideal food truck food, yet I'm not sure if there is such a truck... yet

  1. There's at least one truck:!/TheCrepesTruck

    Le Gamin had a truck for a while, not sure where they are now.

    There's also Bar Suzette, which is in Chelsea Market, and has popped up at Union Sq Holiday Market and Madison Square Eats in the past:

    425 W 15th St, New York, NY 10014

    1. Viva la Crepe just opened on the UWS. there's another one next to Ceci Cela, I think.

      Vive La Crepe
      51 Spring St, New York, NY 10012

      Vive La Crepe
      189 Columbus Ave, New York, NY 10023

      1. I've never eaten there, but Creperie does a booming takeout business, judging from the lines I've seen.

        135 Ludlow St, New York, NY 10002

        112 MacDougal St, New York, NY 10012

        1. Great suggestions, will have to check these all out. Thanks!!

              Creperie is not as good as it used to be.

          2. Very interested here in reading about anything that you (OP) can come up with.
