Love Sophie's Crepes. Ever since I moved to San Francisco, I've been going to Sophie's. After taking a stroll through Japantown, it's hard to miss Sophie's. There is that crepe batter in the air or the line of people waiting or just staring at the crepes flip before being filled. It's a great snack or small dessert when in Japantown. The only decent savory crepe is the chicken salad. This is definitely a quick on-the-run crepe and not an extensive creperie. It's more of a Japanese creperie (duh) so there's definitely Asian-friendly flavors, like lychee, green tea, red bean. My favorite is always the strawberry and nutella... yum!
great crepes, but try the sorbettos. This place has great crepes. You walk by and the smell of crepe batter is delicious! Stand at the window and you will be mesmerized at how talented the crepe makers are at not ever spilling batter over the edge of the griddle. I used to go for the crepes, but once I had a taste of their sorbets and sorbettos, I no longer get crepes! Lychee sorbetto is so good. Get two scoops to get your money's worth.
ok for a late night treat. there always seems to be a crowd in front of the store watching the employees make crepes.. maybe that is the appeal of this place. personally, I find the crepes a bit on the bland side and not really cheap either. but it is one of the few places that is open at night in Japantown, so it is probably worth it just to drop by to try it out.
YUM YUM CREPES. Sweet, yummy, luscious crepes before your very eyes! Always a treat (and a temptation!) when in Japantown, it's a great deal with fast and friendly service. If you end up in line, you get to watch them pour the batter and work their magic as they create the ultimate savory or sweet crepe. Filled with gelato or with ham/cheese, a sure treat!
