Ever want to go to breakfast on a weekend morning, but your local IHOP or diner is packed? If you are looking for breakfast food a little off the beaten path, La Creperie in Providence, Rhode Island may just be the place for you!

Introduced to La Creperie through Durfee’s multicultural month last year, I was already well-aware of what the restaurant served. Established in 1996, La Creperie has been serving French style savory and sweet crepes, and homemade smoothies. La Creperie is open seven days a week, and is open until 2 o’clock in the morning on Friday and Saturday nights. Located in a small alley off of Thayer St., the restaurant was nothing of what I expected.

When the staff came to visit the Hilltoppers last spring, I envisioned that the restaurant would be large and elegant because both crepes I tried were delicious. Though the food was great the atmosphere was tiny and cramped. Parking on this alley was really close, and sometimes there were no spots. The restaurant was more of a cafe. Inside there were about 4 small tables with a couple of chairs each, and two small tables outside.

I went with three others around 11:30 in the morning. We were lucky enough to find parking, however we did not beat the crowd. Finding seats was hard and our whole group was not able to sit together.

I had a dessert crepe, filled with chocolate and strawberries. La Creperie provides chocolate, fruit, Nutella, and meat filled crepes to satisfy any connoisseur. Priced between $6 to $10 the crepes are the size of a family-sized paper plate, and you definitely will not leave hungry.

If you have the time, money, and energy taking a trip to La Creperie should be on your "to do" list.
