Desserts go designer in Lincoln Park

Couture Crepe Cafe (2568 N. Clark St.) quietly opened in mid-March in Lincoln Park. And so far Yelpers are really feeling it:

"I tried this place out over the weekend and got a crepe with nutella and strawberries. I thought it was great! It wasn't overly sweet and yet it was filling. It tasted very 'natural' and I didn't feel like I just ate a couple of donuts."—Priya

"The atmosphere of the restaurant is pretty cool. Definitely 'couture' compared to neighboring establishments, they have these great tables with magazines that serve as the decor but you can also read them too. Staff was friendly and attentive."—Ms. C

"The chef queried my preferences and we settled for a sweet honey mascarpone and cherries crepe suzette and a small cappuccino. The crepe was small enough to eat by myself, but large enough to be shared with one other person and still hit the spot. It was fantastic, a bit sweet for my taste, but highly recommendable nonetheless."—Ricardo
