is one of those places there are way too few of in our town – a creperie.

For a town that is earning a reputation for food this dearth had to be filled and this small place is helping to do that in a big way. It is located on East Main Street in Bexley in the same block as Giuseppe’s and the Drexel Theatre.

C’est Si Bon is not very large, but the menu is and it is very reasonable considering the quality and quantity of the product. Our family, including son Rich and his family, descended upon it on a recent Saturday during a white out, and it was still crowded.

Among the crepes sampled in this and previous trips were; the Black and Blue, the wonderful large thin crepe wraps tender beef slices, crumbled blue cheese, grilled mushrooms and caramelized onions, topped with a veal reduction sauce ($8.75); a chicken Cordon Blue with pulled chicken, ham and Swiss cheese with a spicy sweet mustard ($8.75); a pear and brie with walnuts and reduced balsamic ($7.25); and for the 3 year old granddaughter, a chocolate and strawberry special order combo which she ended up proudly wearing all over her face.

They have an extensive menu of savory and sweet crepes and some breakfast selections as well. This summer they promise to have outdoor seating as well, a welcoming thought with all the snow and ice on the ground.

    The Silent Woman Bar was i believe on East Main, just east of James.
    The signage in neon or lit up from behind maybe, was extremely provocative.
    It showed an image of a female with her, holding her own head or her head somehow detached.
    Depicting the female as presumably silent. And even holding the knife?
    pretty grisly, and disturbing and was evident to anyone driving around there up till the 90’s, it seems.

    Slow hipster service and slow kitchen. Expensive prices. Don’t visit if you want to see food on your table in under 45 minutes. However the food quality, taste and presentation is very good! Ambiance is contemporary cool inside, very different from what you may have the impression of from the exterior of this old Tim Horton’s location. Good bar and drink selection. Overpriced menu. On the west coast you can find this style of filipino restaurant serving same dishes for $7.50. Here they will set you back $12-$18. You can’t even get into appetizers for less than $10 unless you want a bowl of rice. Don’t know if they’ll survive, table turnover is way too slow, even though they’re making large profit margin per dish, it’s just way too slow. If you have an evening to kill, this would be a good hangout. Don’t attempt a weekday lunch or dinner. You’ll see a good hipster millinial crowd here.
