A la Folie serves the kind of old-fashioned French fare that expatriate American artistes of the 1920s ate in the home-away-from-home Parisian cafés they frequented. And today's starving South Beach artists can eat the same at this tiny, informal, and authentic-feeling French creperie-plus run by expatriates from Toulouse. Try the tasty buckwheat Dijonnaise crepe (chicken and potatoes in mustard cream sauce), followed by a sweet sugar/lemon juice dessert crepe topped with whipped cream. And the substantial "total" (ham, egg, mushrooms, and cheese) really is a complete crepe-wrapped breakfast.
