Dear PoPville,

Crêpes-A-Go-Go on P Street is gone. Of all things, the space is going full-circle: Shear Artistry (a hair salon) is supposed to be opening there. (It was a Hair Cuttery when I moved here 20 years ago.) I’ll miss CAGG…they had wonderful crêpes and their gelato was awesome.

I also called Crepes a Go Go Wed. afternoon and they’ve confirmed they closed their Dupont location at 2122 P St, NW. They did say they hope to find a new location possibly in the neighborhood in about a month. Stay tuned for more info on that when it becomes available.

Where there any fans of Crepes a go-go? You can see their menu here. Their sister store Crepes on the Walk remains open in Chinatown/Penn Quarter near the movie theater at 701 7th St, NW.

  • Bummer. This was a nice change of pace from the usual lunch options.

  • I question the tipster’s information, particularly in regards to the name of the new tenants. I used to get my hair cut at this very address starting about 10 years ago, until they closed around ’05/’06. That hair salon was called “Shear Artistry.” Seems odd that this place would close, turn into a crepe shop for several years, then return to a hair salon under the same name…

    • Crepes a Go Go closing is 100% accurate. I confirmed it with the owners. I’ll update when we know for sure who the new tenant is.

        Hello all,
        Crepes a go go is closed on p st. You can also visit Point chaud cafe and crepes on 14 th and S, NW or 14 th and K, NW. You will find the same menu as it is operated by the same owner. Unfortunately, we had to shut down the p st location. Crepes on the walk has a limited menu because of the size. The Gaithersburg location is also opened is still trading as crepes a go go. Thank you to every one that supported that business for the years it was open.

    I’m a fan of Crepes-a-Go-Go. I don’t make it there as often as I would like, but I like their selection of crepes and have found their service to be nice. I hope they do find a new location around Dupont.

  • I liked this place – tasty food and nice people – but the space was a little weird. Crepes aren’t really take-out food so that sort of meant you had to eat there, which meant you were either eating in a basement or in the outdoor seating which was sunk below the sidewalk.

      “Crepes aren’t really take-out food…”

      Au contraire! Tell that to Parisians, or the folks who buy crepes at Crepes on the Walk: the crepe is a perfect take-out food (if served properly wrapped for take-out).

    shear artistry is not moving back to the space.

    I will miss it so.

  • Sorry about the confusion of Shear Artistry going in. The Crepes-A-Go-Go “awning” sign apparently had been simply placed over Shear Artistry’s. Now that it’s gone, Shear Artistry’s is once again showing.

    If anything the space desperately cries out to have a *REAL* NY Style pizza place go in. I would do almost anything for The Italian Store to open a pizza outpost right here! :)

    this is devastating. It was such a great neighborhood hangout. The rent must have been raised — that place was always packed. I’ll miss it.

    What a shame! We were regular crepes a go-go customers and loved it. The food was great and fresh and reasonably priced and the staff — especially Amadou — were wonderful not just to us but to our daughter. So sorry to see you go; we look forward to patronizing the new location.
