It's no mystery that the city's best Crêpes can be found in Yorkville at Crêpes à GoGo (18 Yorkville Ave.).  The charming little Café is modeled exactly after the variety you'd find in Paris and the actual owners are Parisian, insisting on hiring French-speaking staff for full effect.  Peering at the walls of the restaurant, we see old Press Clippings of owner Véronique Perez's proud filmmaking accomplishments from her days in France and as always, she is charming and delightful if you are lucky enough to see her during the week.

Crêpes à GoGo's signature item is the Big Ben, a sweet Crêpe which comes with your choice of Mozzarella or Brie and Raspberry Jam at $7.00 CAN.  My favourite on the menu is the Rive Droite (pictured) with Scrambled Eggs, Spinach, Sour Cream and Smoked Salmon at $10.00 CAN perfect if you are a late riser like me on weekends.  The Niçoise is also delightful with Tuna, Mozzarella, Black Olives, Za'atar (a Middle Eastern herb), Basil and Olive Oil.  This is also one of the few places in the city you can get yourself a Petit Crème, which is essentially an Espresso Shot topped with sweet Whipped Cream.  Decadence.  Check out their full menu here, although I will note that their website is still under construction.
