Several weeks ago (we really should have posted sooner) we were picking up wine at the Local Vine Cellar and talking to the owner when he asked if we had tried the new crepe place that had taken over the U-Scream Ice Cream shop next door. It was news to us and we love crepes, so we figured we’d give it a try soon. Well, cold and flu season did a number on us and we still haven’t gotten around to try the place out, but by all accounts it is very good.
Mon Amour Crepes & Ice Cream at 1001 Penn Ave (on 11th between Penn & E) is open only for lunch right now (February hours are 11am to 4pm) and serves a variety of sweet & savory crepes. As the name implies they also still sell ice cream, although we need it to get a little bit warmer before that will appeal. Mon Amour Crepes & Ice Cream joins another recent crepe addition to Penn Quarter, Point Chaud opened in late 2012, also on 11th Street, but farther north near NY Ave.
Have any of our readers done a taste test of these two new(ish) crepe shops in Penn Quarter?
