Great cafe with awesome interior and atmosphere. One of the best in town..
The interior is great, the service and the atmosphere. One of the best spots during our recent 4 day visit.
Make reservations or come before the "rush hour".
Crabmeat & Spinach Crepe Amazing!. I could eat it everyday! Personable service, romantic setting and a great looking little bar. A neighborhood favorite!
Adorable, but not worth the hype.
One of my dining companion's likened the look of La Crepe as having been dropped here from right out of paris. It is lovely! We sat outside and enjoyed the scenery, the company of the other tables...all in all the ambiance was there. The food however, was another story. As a fan of french food, I know what to expect, however theirs was billed on the menu as french with that New Orleans flair using local ingredients to add interest, but not effectively. Many items sounded delicious, eye considered getting the crab crepes, but opted for the chicken with a light wine, curry sauce...seemed like it would be a flavorful choice (and I love curry). Not quite. It was BLAND! not enough curry to taste let alone smell. Another friend got the crab crepes, there were TERRIBLE!
Only saving grace was Dessert! That is what you go there for. The coffee was perfect, the desserts were heavenly. We will stop by for nothing more than to top of dinner somewhere else.
Good prices, food So So.
Another seen & be seen place for locals. It's listed as having the best Frites, I have to disagree. Delachaise has the best frites which are hand cut & cooked in duck fat, stellar!
As for the food at Le Crepe Nanou, it's ok. Mussels are much better at Martinque. The cheese &/or pate plate million times better at the Delachaise or Emerils. It is the only place to get crepes but they are not of the true french variety, not crispy tend to be soft & mushy at times.
Go for reasonable food prices & to hang out, hopefully you can land a table on the side walk. They also don't have much of a wine list but there's a decent glass or two on the list & they are not overpriced.
Delicious and Cozy. The food is great! The mussels are a fantastic starter, as are the yummy frites. The lump crabmeat crepe was superb and a must try for anyone who goes. For dessert I requested a crepe you can get from any crepe vendor in France with butter, cinnamon and sugar. The service was excellent and it is a cozy spot for a date or small group.
Amazing Atmosphere, High Quality Food. I adored La Crepe Nanou and would recommed it to anyone. I went on a Friday night at nine and only had to wait for about 10 minutes. The service was incredible and their bread a pleasant treat while waiting for an appetizer. I got the traditional salad, and their tomatoes were perfectly ripe and their mustard dressing is to die for. As an entree, I got the crab crepe with the creamed spinach, and it was the best lump crab meat I have found in New Orleans! Perfect flavor, and it matched very well with the spinach. For dessert, I requested my own crepe (which you can do!) of chocolate sauce, strawberries, whipped cream and chocolate ice cream. My friend got the crepe with the baked apples and loved it. Their wine selection is very good, and the atmosphere is pleasant. I would recommed that anyone who likes French food, fine dining in a comfortable setting, people watching and great desserts come here. An uptown gem!!
Delicious and adorable. The food is superb. I started with a soft, sweet, halved avocado drizzled with dijon dressing. I loved the grilled shrimp (although the accompanying angel hair was only so-so) and also asked for a side of pomme frites which were crisp and delish. The dessert crepes are devine - I had Crepe Lucie (vanilla ice cream, strawberries and chocolate sauce) which was amazing. The service is superb. My mom couldn't decide between Crepe Florentine and Crepe Provencale, so the waiter suggested getting the Florentine and he brought her a side of the ratatouille from the Provencale. The only drawback was the wait (at least half an hour and we arrived at 9pm, but it was after Tulane graduation) but it was definitely worth it.
Straightforward, high-quality French bistro fare with an affordable price tag..
Chaotic, informal and just small enough to be intimate, Uptown's Crepe Nanou epitomizes the comfortable neighborhood bistro. The narrow rooms fill quickly, leaving latecomers to contentedly sip cocktails at the bar or wine at sidewalk tables.
Though resisting the haute cuisine aspirations common to French restaurants, Crepe Nanou presents its simple fare with impeccable substance and casual style. From soft, hot-off-the-griddle crepes to more substantial dishes like grilled salmon with Bearnaise, Nanou aims to please the sophisticated average Joe. Best bets? Start with mussels mariniere and crispy house "frites" (french fries). The crabmeat-crawfish coquilles are a creamy variation on the traditional French scallop dish. Crepes stuffed with beef bourguignon are also top-notch. Sweet crepes--filled with everything from coffee ice cream to tender apple filling--rule the dessert menu.
What a Gem!. After my first visit about 3 years ago, I have become a faithful Crepe Nanou customer. The quality of their dishes is consistently superior and every time I try a new dish I am very pleasantly surprised. As if this weren't enough, the prices are unbeatable. Escape the overpriced tourist traps and try this uptown gem.
