Last weekend, after running out of time to try dessert at Osteria Marco, we found ourselves bumbling around Larimer Street looking for something sugary. Crepes 'n Crepes - conveniently located along some of downtown's busiest foot traffic - lured us in with bright lights and delicious smells.
Crepes 'n Crepes offers a variety of sweet and savory crepes, but we were only interested in a dessert-like dish for the evening. At the staff's recommendation, we ordered a specialty crepe that was packed with fresh strawberries and a cream cheese-like sauce ($9.5).
We watched as they prepared the crepe in front of us in just a couple of minutes.

The presentation was beautiful, and I was very impressed with the flavor, freshness, and overall quality of the strawberries. However, just about every restaurant in Denver prices their desserts at $7-$8 each, for what is often a much more complex dessert than a crepe.
Crepes 'n Crepes was a decent place to pop in and try, although the simple arrangement of cream, strawberries, and crepe, while delicious, seemed expensive for $9.5.
