What are some ideas for crepe fillings?
I'm looking to make crepes Sunday for breakfast. I want to offer a few filling options. I have strawberries and whipped cream, banana with nutella. Anything on the savory side? Prefer quick to put together or make ahead options. Thank you!

Many of the ones mentioned here (ham, cheese, onion, mushroom, seafood) are in the Larousse listing.
Alternatively, you could simply visualize the crêpe as another starchy wrapper (like bread, tortilla, wonton, etc.) and add whatever suits your fancy. The sky's the limit if you approach it that way.
That said, I'm a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to something as classic as crêpes. Also, I find them delicate enough where really bold flavoring fillings end up being overwhelming and unbalanced. But that's just me...
Best of luck.
I second the mushrooms and gruyere for savory, or if you can find them morels and asparagus.
Or almost anything you have on hand and like.
* Potato-chorizo hash—or any sausage. This is a popular taco fill and I bet would be great in a crepe.
* Sautéed greens and a grated cheese, like cheddar, or soft one, like fresh goat.
* Avocado! Mash with a bunch of lime juice to get ahead of oxidation. Top with something crunchy, like shaved radishes or nuts or both.
