PoP Crepe

Back in the day the owners of the old Maggie Moos at 1301 U Street, NW asked PoPville readers to name the new spot. You guys came up with U Scream Ice Cream and it always makes me smile when I walk past that sign.

Now, I’m happy to report that they will soon be offering crepes.

And thanks to a reader for sending in the above photo.

Ed. Note: Ever since I saw the Larry David Sandwich episode on Curb Your Enthusiasm it has been a dream of mine to have a PoP sandwich. I can’t believe it but that dream has come true. I can now die happy.

Obviously the important thing here is that now we will soon be able to get crepes on U Street. And stay tuned for Point Chaud to open at 14th just south of S Street, NW. (Remember the other crepe place that was supposed to come to 14th and S is now becoming a burger spot.)

    Crepes are coming to 14th st just north of K — I saw the coming soon sign when I was on the bus the other day. Crepes everywhere!

  • Heather

    Haha, congrats PoP.

  • Kalorini

    Crepes?! Best news I’ve heard all week :-)

    Congrats PoP!

    All these crepe places are better than another cupcake or frozen yogurt place, though I wish we had some more falafel joints int he vein of Amsterdam falafel on 18th st.

      Maoz on M Street at 19th just opened! not as good as amsterdam falafel, but nearer to my office.

    It’s a good thing PoP isn’t a vegan…

    Acording to the sign they’ll soon be selling “creps.”

  • Chris on Seaton

    Awesome! I don’t think you can expect anything greater in life than to have a crepe named after you. Yessiree Sir have reached the top.

    And, to be memorialized alongside Duke Ellington… a toast to you!

  • Richard

    PoP sandwich! Bacon and ham????
    Doesn’t sound too kosher to me.
    Is that the best they can do for a Jewish boy?

  • you have a menu item named after you!!!! hahaha. thats so awesome!

  • Erin

    I’m impressed you have a crepe named after you! :)

  • NonGrata

    they should have an “oops, i crepe’d my pants” crepe.

  • Florista

    Congratulations, PoP!! You’d better get out and eat a lot of your namesakes…

  • I like the correct usage of the word savory, meaning the opposite of sweet. The British are big on this word, btw.

    I think my friend took that pic!
