Decided to try this place spur of the moment and it was SO worth it, even if we did have to stand outside and wait on a cold day in Houston! Lucky for us we were at the front end of the line, so the wait wasn't so long. The crepes are made with fresh ingredients and you can watch as he puts all of it together and prepares it for you. My hubby had the savory and I had the sweet -- we were both impressed, and really would have loved to order a second time around if the line hadn't been so long.
The owner is not only great with the food, but he's also quite the conversationalist, which adds life to the little crepe cart. Definitely give it a go!!

The food truck/card business is really picking up in Houston. All kinds of good food is being served 'on the go' and Melange Creperie is part of the trend. If you've ever been to Paris and enjoyed the amazing crepes that are sold on almost every corner, then this will send you back. If you've never been to Paris, this is Paris street food - fresh, delicious and so very simple. Just perfect.

There are two carts, one is in front of Mangos on Westheimer and Taft. The other is in front of Stella Sola, on Studemont at 10th. You have a choice of three different savory crepes and two or three sweet crepes. The ham, egg and cheese savory and the Nutella with bananas are the two mainstays. Otherwise, the menu changes monthly, I believe.

Our first trip was to check out the cart on Taft. The wait was 45 minutes long. We were told to check out the cart on Studemont. There was no wait, but that changed the next time we went. Saturdays are generally crazy from what we're told. We've only been on Sunday. This past Sunday there was a family of four in front of us and it was about a 15 minute wait before the crepe chef got to our order.

The wait can be long even if there are only four or five people in front of you. So be prepared. Next time we go, which will probably be this weekend, we're going to bring a couple lawn chairs, a coffee canister and the paper. That way we can chill out while we wait. But... the wait is sooo worth it. The crepes are wonderful and the perfect food on the go. All the ingredients are fresh. It's just a nifty way to have breakfast.

At the heights location, there are tables outside so if you bring chairs, you can set up at one of the tables and enjoy your crepes leisurely. There is parking out back. We haven't been back to the Westheimer location because the one in the Heights is just less crowded. Not sure what the crowds are like during the week.

Hours are Thursday through Monday. Thursdays, Fridays and Mondays from 7-1 and Saturdays and Sundays from 10-2. Crepes are $6-7 each. http://melangecreperie.wordpress.com/

Bon appetit.
