A little off topic but we had brunch at Creperie Beau Monde today and I was reminded that it is a terrific place to go just for dessert & coffee or tea! Today we were with a group so we ordered differently, but normally when my husband and I go there alone we share a savory crepe and then a sweet one. The restaurant has real class. They make it into such a lovely presentation that it doesn't look like shared dishes. They add garnishes and dress the plate as if it were the full order - even when gelato is part of the dish!
They showed class again today when I asked our server (one who has waited on us several times before) if she would give us separate checks. It was a fairly large group and it made it easier for us. We had single people and couples - and the couples weren't sitting together! There was not one misstep from our server. She was amazing. I didn't know that it would be the case when I asked for separate checks but we all ended up paying with cash. She was visibly pleased by that.
Anyway they have great food - and the desserts can stand on their own!
