The crepe, or French pancake, was invented in 1923 to make its American counterpart look fat, oafish, and uncouth in comparison. Help the disked dessert to maintain its well-deserved sense of superiority with today's Groupon.

The influences on the cuisine of Mina Ramatou Fofana, the gastronomist who owns Mina’s Delights, are widespread to say the least: her dishes sample from the culinary traditions of Africa, Europe, America, and Asia, and in particular France and West Africa. The restaurant was originally founded to serve crepes, which explains why the menu teems with sweet and savory versions of the treat, including a signature rainbow crepe topped with cherries, peaches, pineapple, and hazelnut crumbs.
Following the success of its crepes, the restaurant has expanded its repertoire to include European and African specialties. This means instead of shot-putting themselves to West Africa, diners can stay put to enjoy one of the region's popular dishes, thiebou jen, which pairs fresh veggies with spiced, stuffed fish.
