Guess where I’m eating crêpes Provençal?

I've been to Brittany, the homeland of crêpes; I've been to Paris and Provence, where there are crêpe carts on every corner. Hell, I've even eaten crêpes in Mexico City. But these crêpes, sheeted with something that's billed a creamed spinach sauce, ballooned with crappy ingredients and plated with dry hash browns and three squares of watermelon (that's the "fresh fruit" you're promised on the menu), would make a true Frenchman fall off the Eiffel Tower in despair.

Can you guess where I'm eating?

Who's pretentious enough to order crepes outside of France expecting them to be good? A food critic, of course...

Nowhere. As they are crêpes Provençal.

I believe those would be from Cafe de France in Greenwood Village.

@KarzNskis Eh, I think expecting the food you order to be good is a reasonable expectation.  Expecting them to be authentic is a different story, but this little "guess where" didn't complain about the lack of authenticity, just the lack of quality.

@davebarnes Hey, Dave -- Using the cédille, a circumflex, or other diacritical marks in our headlines often don't translate properly by web browsers, which is why we don't use them.

@davebarnes That's the one.  Although I like my name better.
