Colorado Springs Italian wine bar pivoting

Wahid Hafsaoui has relocated Paris Crepe into the former Montague’s.

Wahid and Stacy Hafsaoui, owners of the popular Paris Crepe, moved their restaurant into the former Montague’s at 1019 S. Tejon St. in mid-Februrary. They weathered the months of the stay-at-home order with takeout and are now going strong in their new place.

The interior and outside have a fresh look. Carpet has been replaced with stained concrete. Mismatched antique table and chairs and overstuffed seating are gone. Sleek table and chairs and booths have replaced all that. The walls are painted a lovely yellow that makes for a warm, cozy feel. There’s a nice patio at the back. You’ll find most of the same menu items, great espresso drinks, salads and desserts.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays and Mondays, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays. They will open before 9 a.m. on Saturdays with reservations for 10 or more. Details: 444-0110, pariscrepeco.com.
