When hunting that perfect Hollywood Hills Home for sale and you get a little cranky... if it's low blood sugar and you need a snack there's a new place down the street from the Pacific Design Center, actually across the street from the Beverly Center called "Crepe Republic".
While I know that everyone wants to be the first to say "I found it!" - when it's good, it doesn't matter.
Scouring the Hollywood real estate market day after day it's easy to notice more than a few crepe places when they're on your radar.
In West Hollywood I can think of a couple on Santa Monica... but let's leave those for another time.
Crepe Republic is a place I passed by a few time without trying because of it's strip mall location. I tend to want to go for crepes with a little french bistro flair, a little Monmarte cafe ambiance. And then I was with a friend and we decided to stop in on a friday afternoon.
The decor is nothing to rave about though it is clean, neat and nice. We ordered a sweet and a savory crepe plate (two) and sat with our Illy coffees and were delighted.
The food was outstanding, the service was friendly and we found that it is not a chain, it's a one off. And they know crepes. And the prices are very reasonable...
So if you're in the neighborhood, looking for West Hollywood condos or just shopping the Beverly Center or the Nordstrom's Rack across the street... run in from the corner of La Cienega and Third street and pass up on the trendy spot for a little surprise.
You won't be disappointed. And no, I wasn't paid for this endorsement... I just love crepes... just got back from Paris and wanted to pass along the pleasure.
Crepe Republic 8516 West 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA - (310) 652-7772
