While studying abroad in Paris last fall, I got so used to buying and eating crepes that I experienced a reverse culture shock when I came back to Philly and could only find crepes in classy and expensive French restaurants. Thankfully, So Crepe opened about two months ago to fill both the void in my stomach as well as in the market for good, cheap crepes in Philly.
So Crepe, which we first told you about back in October of 2012 opens at 11 a.m. today at 1506 South Street. The crepe spot will serve both sweet and savory crepes. The menu tops out at $9 and crepes range from the classic eggs, ham and Swiss cheese to the unusual, cream cheesed tuna fish, onions, chives and tabasco sauce.
We here at Foobooz World Headquarters shed more than one tear when creperie and coffee shop Cafe L’Aube closed on South Street. So imagine our excitement when we spotted signs for So Crêpe at 1506 South Street. Owner Fabrice Goutte told us that So Crepe will be a casual restaurant of course focusing on crepes. The restaurant’s tagline is “So Simple, So Healthy, So Gourmet, So French.” Goutte and his partners hope to be open before the year is out but the former salon will need a complete redo before it becomes a crepe spot.
