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.
