Crepes on Columbus

I really love crepes. I've had them at several places around the city... here are my faves!

Yorkville Creperie is less than a block from my first apartment in NYC. During my Us Weekly internship I lived on E 83rd between 1st and York... and Yorkville Creperie is right around the corner! Their sweet crepes menu has some indulgently over-the-top selections. Try the "sweet": white chocolate, cinnamon baked apple, graham cracker crumbs, ice cream and cornflakes (I'd suggest splitting it and getting some tea to go with...). They also serve fab paninis if you're looking for something a bit heartier. They have free wi-fi available, too.

I discovered Crepes on Columbus after a long winter walk through Central Park with my mum. When we emerged from the northwest corner of the park, we stopped at the first place we saw. What luck! I absolutely love this place, and have eaten here countless times since happening upon it three years ago. Service is a bit casual (read: slow) but they're very friendly and portions are generous. They also have amazing homemade soups and a full breakfast menu. Afterwards, take a stroll through Riverside Park or do some shopping at 808 Columbus Avenue (Michael's Crafts, TJ Maxx, Sephora, Whole Foods).

La Crepe Parisienne serves up crepes in a hurry, rolled into cone shapes that are easy to eat on the go. They also have seating for those who want a more leisurely meal. Located on Spring Street in SoHo, this spot is located in walking distance of the Angelika. Grab a crepe and an iced tea, and go see Winter's Bone- the winner of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize.
