Mini-review: Icosium Kafe/Crepe & Coffee Palace

Icosium Kafe
5200 N. Clark

Crepe & Coffee Palace
2433 N. Clark

Two names, two locations, double the crepe goodness. These cafes serve sweet and savory crepes with an Algerian twist, such as the Crepe Palace (raisins, pears, and rose water with pistachio ice cream) and the Crepe Marrakech, which includes olive tapenade, almonds, and mint.

Vibe: Warm, cozy, fragrant coffeehouse. The aroma of melted butter, caramelized sugar, and North African spices will lull you into a dreamlike state before you even take your first bite.
Cost: $4.50 to $8.50 a crepe
Must-try: Savory crepes include a cup of soup. The pureed vegetable soup is highly recommended, especially with a dollop of harissa, a fiery North African red pepper paste.
Avoid: Falling asleep at your table.
Also: Don’t miss the sweet, cardamom-scented Turkish coffee.

    That coffee sounds really good right now and most of the time. Did you really fall asleep at your table? lol. I would’ve taken a picture if I was there.
