Crepes under Glass - Le Creperie Voila

On a whim after a movie in downtown we headed over to try out Le Creperie Voila. Could this place be any good when compared to Paris and Vancouver B.C.?
I give it a yes.
Under the glass covered sidewalks of the Convention Center, Le Creperie Voila is a small kiosk outside of the Convention Center, across the street from the Cheesecake Factory. Seating is limited to a few tables anchored to the sidewalk, on the edge of Pike Street. Not the most picturesque place in the world to eat, but not that bad.
The crepes? Good enough for me. We split a Bananas Foster with ice cream, mmmmmmmm good. A lot of people we saw were taking savory crepes to go.
Not really the Parisian tea and crepe experience, but for Seattle, a good place for a solid crepe.

Memorial Weekend

Ah, the weekend. After being sick for 3 weeks in a row, I'm using this week to really rest and relax. Good thing, because the weather was great. So we bummed around town. Had a nice lunch over at the Ballard Locks and walked the Ballard neighborhood. We strolled over to the Arboretum to see the Rhododendrons before they totally were spent. Since we were close we stopped by the Japanese Garden to see the monster carp and the blooming Wisteria. Monday morning we visited Fort Lawton's Cememtery to see the gravestones on Memorial Day, and then to downtown for some more strolling, Indiana Jones and food.
