Newcomer Melange Creperie in the Heights tops the list as the highest rated creperie in Houston. Located at 711 Heights Blvd., the cafe boasts 4.5 stars out of 300 reviews on Yelp. Owned by "Buffalo" Sean Carroll and his wife, Tish Ochoa, Melange was inspired by the couple's honeymoon travels to Paris. The creperie started out with a cart in Montrose, moving last year into its first standalone brick-and-mortar space. Order your crepe "melange a deux" (with two ingredients) or "melange a trois" (with three). There are both sweet and savory options, including bananas with Nutella or Thai chicken with peanut sauce.

Besides the University Place location, the chain has another highly rated outpost in the Memorial area, with a third opening in Highland Village this summer. Saying it's "on a mission to sweeten the world," the French-style cafe offers a wide selection of sweet and savory crepes, including the croque madame (scrambled eggs, Gruyere cheese, smoked ham and bechamel sauce), berry agave (apples caramelized in agave syrup, strawberries, blackberries and cinnamon) and the prosciutto with cherry tomatoes, mozzarella and fresh basil.
