Our favorite frenchie, Denajua, just announced that she'll be closing her petite yet popular creperie near the Case Western Reserve Campus on Saturday April 16. "I couldn't just shut down without giving my customers a chance to say good-bye," says the city's most notorious crepe maker. "So I hope everyone will stop in sometime in the next few days to say a final bonjour."
Lease issues lead to the decision. But all is not lost. Denajua says that with the help of University Circle promoters, she expects to find a new, more spacious spot in the neighborhood, and will reopen in the not too-distant future.
Denajua writes: "University Circle and I are working together to find a more quaint location for me in University Circle area. The Oui Oui has been a big hit with the students, hospital and University and museums' staff. A better location will allow me to create an atmosphere that reflects my creativity and hopefully some place with outdoor seating will be an extra plus. We hope to secure a place before the students return from their summer break."
For now, Le Oui Oui Crepe Cafe is at 11309 Euclid Ave. (University Circle); call for current hours at 216-231-2800.
