Aren't they just really thin pancakes?
I have no idea what this food is.
A crepe is effete pancake. Yes.
[link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cr%C3%AApe]Wiki says yes[/link], and therefore it must be true.
Either way, they're delicious.
Zeeze are zee French pancake. Very French.
Wiki is not always accurate!
Therefore, for the sake of argument, I say no. Crepes are made of eggs, pancakes are not. Therefore pancakes =/= crepes.
But I read it on the internet, so it must be!
Are potato pancakes canon?
Yes, they are. In particular, a British pancake is pretty much a (less authentic) crepe.
The slightly thicker, less cratered version you Americans insist on nominating a pancake is on this side of the pond either a Scotch pancake or a drop scone.
Crepes are yummy.

Basic pancake recipes have:
Basic crepe recipes DON'T have sugar or the baking powder. But they do have water.
This leads to a completely different texture. They just aren't the same thing.
CrÃªpes are my favourite ? and they are not pancakes! Afterall, go to any good crÃªperie in QuÃ©bec and there will be dinner crÃªpes and dessert crÃªpes ? and I?ve never heard of dinner pancakes or dessert pancakes. It?s just not the same!
I am suspicious that the e in crepes feels it needs to wear that hat. What is it hiding?
Its french nature?
edit -- bad typos!
No, beezel is not a pancake.
