Point Chaud Cafe & Crêpes
brought a new concept to the Washington, D.C., metro area. We had our humble beginnings on the streets of Paris many years ago. There was once a Parisian street vendor who had a vision. You see, people in France had been enjoying the unique taste sensation of the crepe for decades, even centuries. However, across the ocean, many people had never eaten a crepe before, let alone had a creperie in their city.
And so, with enthusiasm, grit, and lots of luck, the Parisian street vendor brought the concept of the crepe to America. A variety of fresh ingredients, folded into a delicately light and thin pancake, was served hot off the griddle in U.S. cities. This new creperie, known as Point Chaud Cafe & Crêpes, has been delighting crepe lovers in America since 1991. Visit one of our two locations in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, the next time you have a craving for a delicious crepe.
The traditional Parisian crepe – there’s nothing else like it! Our sweet and savory crepes are filled with the freshest fruits, vegetables, and meats. Every crepe we serve is handmade to order and cooked on our unique griddles. Our chefs fold each crepe into a decorative triangle, and our servers bring them quickly to your table. Don’t forget to add a piping-hot espresso, or freshly made coffee, from our full espresso bar.
Choose a table and dine in, or call ahead for carryout. We’re also available for your next birthday party or family gathering. Ask us about catering for your next business meeting or corporate breakfast.

You can even mix and match ingredients to create your own special crepe. Point Chaud is the perfect stop for any meal of the day – breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even a late-night snack. We look forward to serving you soon.
