Hey friends,

My name is Isabelle, I’m a sophomore at Mass Art, and I’ve been working at the Paris Creperie since last May.  If you’re a fan of food and teamwork I want to genuinely tell you why you should apply to work here.

When I first started here I felt welcomed right away and I could tell my coworkers actually care about each other’s well being. I also get to interact with great customers daily! Meeting new people every day has been really amazing! Our customers are the best!! We also practice open book, a management style that gives all the employees a business education and helps them grow the business with their own ideas and input (and the profit sharing is awesome by the way!)

Our staff is split into committees to help the cafe prosper. I’m in the marketing committee, where we get to plan events for the cafe and boost our social media presence. This is something I’m actually interested in and really enjoy doing. You can find me spinning the prize wheel or painting faces during events. But my favorite thing is doing the sidewalk chalk art on weekends.

Don’t let me fool you though, this job is also hard work and you have to be prepared to put in the time and energy to commit to the cafe. If you’ve ever visited on a weekend, you’ll understand. It gets crazy! It’s all very worth it though.We do have a lot of fun here even when it’s hectic.

I’ve met some of my good friends working here and have learned so many new skills!

If working at Paris Creperie seems like a commitment you’d also enjoy making, stop by and pick up an application today!

Hey friends,

So, there is a lot of negativity, hate and sadness consuming a large portion of the population in recent times. Facebook and twitter seem to hold countless battles whenever you log in, and uncertainty of what lies ahead is fresh on all of our minds. We’re certain of one thing here at Paris for sure, and it’s that you’ll always be welcome in our cafe. There will never be bias towards your race, religion, orientation, or beliefs. Regardless of the surrounding atmosphere outside our walls, we’ll welcome all walks of life in our zany little restaurant. There is no place for hate here. Solidarity makes us stronger.

 

The staff at Paris is a unique bunch with even more unique ideas. If you’re having a bad day, let us know. We’ll try to do something to brighten it up.  Want a cat design on your hot chocolate? You got it. Want you and your partner’s name written on a crepe with Nutella? Just let us know the names. I’m sure we even have some extra googly eyes laying around somewhere if you want a pair. We’ll also continue our goal to bring a bit of humor into the restaurant business, so stay tuned for our pun filled menu items and pop culture/nerd references.

 

All in all, just do your best to smile and stay positive, stay true to yourself, and keep being awesome.

 

Paris love you.heartlatte

Wait, Hold the door!

Just like the arrival of dragons in Game of Thrones, this post is a bit late. Every Monday, a handful of the staff gathers to discuss last weeks episode. (The remainder of the staff calls us nerds. But we’re the cool ones.)

We decided we needed to provide a Game of Thrones themed crepe of the month, and we annoyed our staff with puns, such as:

A Crepe Has No Name

The Boar-Atheon

Jon Snowpea

Three-Eyed Cravin’

Stark Chocolate

Raising Bran

 

Until finally, one clicked and thus, The KALE-EESI was born.

 

All Hail the Kale-eesi

“You are in the presence of Daenerys Stormborn of House Coolidge, The Unburnt, Queen of the Greens, Queen of the Andals and The First Men, The Protector of the Cafe, Spinner of Grains and Mother of Dragons. You are not fit to rule this land, only she. It is known. All hail the Kale-eesi!”

 

 

This crepe has been very popular since launch, and the introduction of smoked turkey and in-house made red wine jalapenos are the stars here. Some guests even take it to the next level and add hot sauce to channel their inner dragon.

 

Here are some testimonials about this crepe special:

varys“My little birds have sang many a song about this crepe, and what a song they’ve sung!” – Varys
CuijbaHC“I love the Kale-eesi and I’ll keep coming back for it. Even when it’s no longer sold, I will still find it, and I will still order it. Did I mention I love the Kale-eesi? – Jorah

 

greyworm“This crepe is off the chain.” – Greyworm
tyrion-lannister“It’s not short on flavor.   It could do with more wine though.” – Tyrion

hodor

Hodor.” – Hodor

There you have it! Come in before the end of June, and claim your reign upon the Iron Throne.

 

 

 

 

 

Winter can bring out the Gloom in all of us. Just tracking through the snowy streets and slushy Muk can be absolutely Gastly at times. But hey, don’t be Krabby about another cold Boston winter. Embrace it! Wake up your Drowzee self & come on down to the Paras Creperie and warm yourself up with:

Paris_February2016_ChaimanderMeowth, That’s right. The Chai-mander. A spicy and delicious blend of MEM Chai Tea, milk and a mix of some fire-type spices to keep the flame inside burning bright all day long.  If you’re Seaking something different that doesn’t seem too Farfetch’d, then we hope this will Seel the deal. Don’t be a Slowpoke. You gotta drink them all!

Did you think we were going to Raichu a pokemon post without Poke-puns? That would be Onyxcceptable.

 

Greetings fellow crepers and crepettes! This is Nick, the catering & events manager at Paris, as well as the longest standing employee of the company.

It’s the most wonderful time of the entire year; Boston Pride! As Spring finally gets into gear, flowers blossom, the sun shines, birds chirp…
…and thousands of my fellow gays are aflutter with the promise of another fabulous Pride weekend of parades, block parties, and proud self-reflection towards how far we’ve come as a community, as well as taking note of the work yet to be done. I have attended every pride for I don’t even remember how long now, and this year we wanted to do something different. For 3 years now we’ve marched in the parade, and as much fun and awesomeness that is, I felt we needed a break since I typically sacrifice half of my pride weekend to prepare for it. Rather than doing nothing at all to participate, we decided to unveil our newest creation….
The LG-BLT! This wondrous creation contains bacon, romaine lettuce, tomato, and garlic-dijon fromage blanc . Aside from being a perfect pun and a delicious item, we’ve decided to donate $1 out of every sale of the LG-BLT to BAGLY, which is a local Boston youth group, dedicated towards creating events and a safe haven for the LGBT community.
Our poster contains the mother of all leaders, RuPaul, in all her drag glory. She would clearly approve of indulging in such a cause! So come on down, enjoy the crepe, and take pride in the fact that your money is going to a worthy cause. And remember,
If you don’t love yourself, how the HELL you gonna love somebody else? Can I can an amen up in hurrrr?

Howdy Friends,
It has been a long February. Snow has continued to bury our city, the temperature hasn’t budged much from below freezing, and the entire internet is puzzled over what the dress’s actual colors are (in case you’re wondering, it’s white and gold).

Here at the Paris Creperie we take pride in being a beacon of hope. We look around at the wintery, snow jammed city and think, ‘You know, let’s put some super exciting, extra fancy new items on our menu! Give the people what they want! Trade in your shovel for a fork and let’s go!’

This March we proudly present two new crepes as additions to our normal menu. First, we have the Garden of Eden. It sports, walnuts, apples, dried cranberries, our fig reduction, gorgonzola, and arugula. I personally take the bagel bites approach to this one and eat it at every meal (If you have not watched this commercial for bagel bites, please do. Also, yes, we have made a bagel bites crepe, and the results were so dangerously delicious even we, makers of the Nutella Frozen Hot Chocolate were afraid of its power.)

Next, we have the John Gouda-Man. Named after everyone’s favorite working class husband, dude’s best friend, one-eyed fake bible sales man, and monster voice. It’s a crepe you can take home to mom. It includes, smoked Gouda, oven-roasted turkey, bacon, chipotle-parmesan aioli, and spinach.

If these two delights don’t have your mouth watering, you are probably a robot sent from the future to destroy Flavor Town and all of its residents.

BUT WAIT!

There’s more!

We are adding a smoothie. Have you ever been over at your grandmother’s house, and when she offers you a boring oatmeal cookie, you just want to say,

“GRAMS!! THIS IS SOOOO BORING, WHY DON’T YOU TAKE THIS COOKIE, THROW IT IN THE BELNDER, ADD SOME NUTELLA, A ‘LIL SKIM MILK, AND SOME NEXT LEVEL FAT FREE-FRO-YO, AND ACT LIKE A GRANDMA THAT REALLLLY LOVES ME. GAWDDD.”

Grandma-label
(To our left we have the Paris Creperie’s official Grandmother Dorris)

Whether you have felt this way, or not, we sure have which is why we bring to you:

The Nutella Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie!

Come on down, say hi, and try something new–

Hello again friends,

We have made it through the first month of the New Year. It has been a month with cold winds, a cityparalyzing blizzard, and a new song from Kanye West featuring some Scottish guy named Patrick MCcearny (Just playing guys– Wings is one of my favorite bands and I’m sure whatever Paul McCartney did before Wings was cool too!).

Here at the Creperie we have been keeping warm and working hard in the kitchen. We spun out the last Countdown crepe (January’s special) while listening to the Final Countdown (please watch this video if you are unfamiliar this eighties classic ).

Though we are sad to see the Queen B  go, we could not be more excited about what we have coming this montha traditional base crepe, with roasted turkey, honeysteeped collard greens, smoked Gouda cheese and candied walnuts.

A crepe with this line up can only be named after a true legend, a true hero, which is why we have  named it……

THE JOHN GOUDA-MAN
