Crêpe: Au Chocolat ($8.95)
This old style French coffee house is the place to go if you are looking for the perfect crêpe. Chez Elle has more than 27 different crêpes, by far the largest selection among the other crêperies. A popular dish from Chez Elle is the Au Chocolat, a crêpe with chocolate batter filled with a thick chocolate mousse topped with raspberry sauce, chocolate sauce, powdered sugar and a side of whipped cream. The raspberry and chocolate complement each other very well. The crêpes’ flavor was well balanced as the chocolate mousse was not overwhelmingly sweet. The crêpe batter was much thicker than the other two, preventing it from getting soggy. The overall texture was perfect as the mousse did not melt therefore not making it soggy. However, the interior of Chez Elle was rather dull and not as enjoyable to be in, but the crêpe made up for the lack of environment. Inside, Chez Elle felt dark and negative. This rating would be perfect if the setting was more peaceful and calming such as Seven Swans. You are paying a little more for this crêpe but the taste is worth it. Chez Elle takes the number one ranking among the other two crêperies.
