Paris 66

Paris 66 is a nice alternative in a town which has had a shortage of crêperies. Located in Pittsburgh’s East Liberty district, near Kelly’s Bar, they have a nice variety of both savory and sweet crêpes, along with many other choices including sandwiches, soups, and salads. I enjoyed my carrot soup, and my co-diners' sandwiches and salads all looked great. The prices are reasonable, ranging from $4 for simple sweet crêpes, up to around $9 for some of the more elaborate savory creations.

It does get crowded, so time your visit appropriately.

The crêpes themselves are made with buckwheat flour. I happen to love buckwheat, but if you’re not a fan I could see this being an issue.

There’s outdoor seating available out back.

One more note: I’m basing this on one visit to the place. I have a couple of friends who have had “service issues” with Paris 66 that seem to have resulted in them souring on the place. That didn’t happen to us, but if you have anything to say about it, please sound off in the comment thread.
