Meritage vs. Spoonriver in Bastille Day battle of crepes
In honor of Bastille Day, we thought it timely to add a little French flavor to this week's food fight. We gave both Minneapolis and St. Paul a shot at sidewalk crepe dominance, pitting Meritage's crepe cart in St. Paul against Spoonriver's crepe stand in Minneapolis.

Spoonriver serves up half a dozen kinds of savory and sweet crepes at the Mill City Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings, priced from $5.50 to $6.50. On a recent Saturday, the feature savory crepe was filled with goat cheese, herbs, and summer squash for $6.50. The crepe came hot off the griddle, where owner Brenda Langton herself was cooking, clad in a teal apron. The filling was spare, but the flavors were good--creamy cheese, sage, and thin slices of summer squash.
