During our stay in Breckenridge, our attention was often drawn to a tiny restaurant nestled in the middle of Main Street. On every trek past, we couldn’t help but notice the astonishingly long line of people waiting outside. The restaurant was called Crêpes à la Cart, and we knew we would have to try it.
On our last afternoon in Breckenridge, we realized it was now or never. Even though we arrived around 2pm — reasonably late for lunch — the line was substantially long. We waited for about 45 minutes until we got to the order window.
As the name implies, Crêpes à la Cart serves a variety of sweet and savory crêpes. Eric and I each ordered a savory crêpe, plus one sweet crêpe to share. I had the Crêpe Atlantic, made with smoked salmon, spinach, and onions. It was warm, creamy and delicious; extremely satisfying after a morning filled with snowshoeing. We shared a sweet crêpe made with Nutella and strawberries. So. Freaking. Delicious. But I love Nutella, so I knew it would be wonderful. This absolutely did not disappoint.
I’m glad we took the time to stop for crepes at Crepes à la Cart, and I would definitely say it was worth the wait. Are they as good as crepes in France? Well, no, but stateside they’re the best I’ve tried. Definitely an excellent, warm snack for a cold afternoon in Breckenridge. Don’t be dissuaded by the line — I assure you, you won’t be sorry you waited!
