I also remember their Pea Soup, it was a green pea and did not have ham in it like split pea. They were very affordable and it was a special treat for lunch to go there on our student budget.
Thank you all for all your words of advice. I am less confused. I should have Google Images before writing. At least now I have a better idea about these. I expect they are all good. I think Crepes are Do-able. And you can serve them folded or rolled. Additionally, I figured out that crepes are different from Swedish / or scandanavian thin pancakes which are have way more eggs in them which causes their lightness as well as thinness.
I miss The Magic Pan. I went to the sit-down restaurant in Beverly Hills for dinner. It was kind of romantic, dimly lit, & you could watch the chefs make the crepes - dipping the bottom of a hot skillet into the batter.
There are so many fillings & crepes you could make. Some ideas:
Chocolate crepes filled w/ strawberries, drizzled w/ chocolate, & topped w/ whipped cream.
Macerated raspberries and mascarpone.
Scrambled eggs w/ ham, and one or two (green and white) asparagus, topped w/ Mornay or Hollandaise sauce.
Crepe purses/bundles tied w/ a scallion.
The crepes can be folded in a cone shape, & toppped with ice cream.
So many ways to go.
