    Answer 1 year ago

    As far as i understand (from viewpoint switzerland) an omelette is with additional ingredients like beacon, veggies, ... and is normally quite thick.
    A french crepe is only the plain thing in a very thin version...
    In german we call it "Crepe" in switzerland, but "french crepe" in english... So yeah... It is a naming-thing propably... Same as French fries arent french really... Or Hamburgers dont come from Hamburg or Berliner arent originally from Berlin...
