Holy Crepe!

Filling French food you can afford



t might be the only thing on the plate (well, beside the garlic au jus), but the French dip “signature crepe” at Crispy Crepes Café is so big it takes up the whole thing, loaded as it is with roast beef, onion, and brie inside a warm, 16-inch-diameter crepe. In addition to colossal crepes, this tiny, off-the-beaten-track diner on a side street, well known to bargain-seeking Boston University students but not to many others, also offers breakfast, salads, paninis, and smoothies, and even the most expensive items aren’t much pricier than 10 bucks.

The word “crepe” comes from the Latin “crispa,” meaning “curled.”
