Online rumours suggesting the imminent closure of Crêpes à GoGo (18 Yorkville, at Yonge, 416-922-6765, crepesagogo.com) are slightly askew.
"I'm not going anywhere!" insists the French flapjack shack's Véronique Perez.
She is, however, about to launch a sister café dedicated to the popular Parisian pancake later this month on the southwest corner of Spadina and Bloor, next door to none other than Greg's Ice Cream (750 Spadina, at Bloor, 416-962-4734, gregsicecream.com). Roasted marshmallow ice cream on a crepe sounds like a match made in foodie heaven.
"People are always asking me when I'll come back to the Annex," says Perez, who opened the first long-gone Go Go almost 10 years ago at Bloor and Bedford before relocating to the current Yorkville digs. "So when the space came up, I took it.
"I know everybody in the neighbourhood, and they know me. I walk down the street and everyone's so happy to see me. ‘Oh Véronique, you're back!' It's really quite wonderful."
