Crepes Replacing Cupcakes as the New Trendy Food?

Hat tip to the Prince of Petworth (and the Washington Business Journal for picking up his posting)…

I suppose this pretty much seals the deal: Crepes are replacing cupcakes as the new trendy thing to eat in Borderstan and surrounding environs.

Two creperies are coming to 14th and S Streets NW. The one at the northeastern corner, Crepes on the Corner, will be a joint venture between Garden District owner Joe Carmack and Chef Vincent Bradbury. This is the site of the original Garden District location, which is now at the southwest corner of the intersection.

Joe said Saturday that the cafe will be inside the former garden store (a pretty small space) with seating outside… and that they plan to use some of the outdoor space to grow ingredients.

The other creperie will be on the west side of 14th Street just a few doors south of S Street (the locale of a former clothing boutique).

Steam Cafe at the northwest corner of 17th and R Streets NW also serves a good crepe—and has freshly baked (on site) croissants every morning (plain, pecan and chocolate) that are worth a trip every morning.

Personally, I never understood the cupcake craze. I like cupcakes, but still view them as something my mother hauled to family picnics and to my homeroom events in grade school.
