The following is a review of one of my best friend's restaurants. Obviously I'm a bit biased!
Our amazing and talented friend, Gina, visited us in France three years ago and while she was here she had a crêpe making lesson from another friend, Jean-Pierre, the owner of La Table Bretonne in Béziers. When she returned to Spokane she expanded her little bakery into a crêperie and bakery called Bittersweet Bakery and Bistro.
The crêpe named after moi...la crêpe Loulou.

I finally had the chance to eat here when I was in Spokane in March. If you live in or around Spokane, you must go! If you appreciate great coffee, sublime pastries and desserts, yummy crêpes and salads, a gorgeous and welcoming dining space and friendly staff members, you'll be happy that you did.
In addition to sweet and savory crêpes to cure your French food cravings, the Bistro offers homemade bread, muffins, scones, brioche, cookies and bourbon-pecan brownies that are to die for. The desserts options include lemon chiffon cake, three chocolate mousse cake, Key Lime pie, tiramisu, caramel nut tart and raspberry champagne cake, to name a few.
The lemon chiffon cake is divine.
