For weeks now, the long-delayed Crepes On The Corner kept a sign in the window: “Opening January We Promise.” Well, they came close, anyway. “We’re just one day late,” says proprietor Marc Ross. The Capital Hill café finally opened this morning, serving its full menu of crêpes and coffee drinks made with beans from local roaster M.E. Swings Co. Chef and partner Vincent Bradberry describes his roster of eight sweet and eight savory crêpes as “very streamlined and very authentic” but notes that homemade soups, salads and sandwiches are also available. See for yourself whether the Southeast crêperie lives up to that promise, at least. Posted hours today are 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
