Stuffing stuff in stuff is good stuff—especially if it's in the form of a delicate crepe. Experience deliciousness wrapped in goodness with today's deal: for $5, you get $15 worth of these sweet and savory wonder-foods from Sofi's Crepes. Your Groupon is only good at the 333 N. Charles St. location. The restaurant's moderate pricing should allow you to milk this deal for about two wraps. Ask your Valentine to dinner, and then ask him or her to marry you via the French tradition of hiding a crepe somewhere and seeing if he or she can find it.
This cozy gem of an eatery only serves crepes made from fresh and natural ingredients. Recipes are homemade whenever possible, except when the home is on vacation and human hands need to pick up the shack's slack. The quaint interior brings crepe lovers close together as if they were the savorous ingredients and the restaurant itself was the ethereal wrap. When the weather permits, break out of the shell to enjoy a spacious outdoor area.
The menu is flexible and varied, like a tie-dyed contortionist. Choose between sweet or savory crepes, or build your own. The savory half of the menu contains sandwich-like options, while the sweet is more desserty. Options such as the Kevin Bacon (turkey, bacon, cheese, and tomatoes with Thousand Island sauce, $8) or the barbecue shredded pork and cheddar cheese ($8) exist to satiate an aching meat tooth. Vegetarians get some love with the crepe chickpea, cilantro, and spring onion with salsa sauce ($7). Add any filling, such as bacon, avocado, or cranberry chutney, to preexisting options for $1 each. The second category of crepes is sweet enough to elicit cravings from pregnant women before they're even pregnant. The s'more crepe is true to its name by being stuffed with chocolate, melted mallows, and graham cracker crumbs and served with a side of campfire ($5). A concoction of banana, granola, honey, and peanut butter known as the Bananarama fills hearts and minds with gooey joy ($6). Build your own for $1 per ingredient, choosing from a veritable rainbow of fresh fruits, treats, and mouthwatering indigo.
- The fresh and natural fillings offered at Sofi’s venture well beyond the usual cheese, chocolate and fruit fillings, providing a well-rounded selection able to suit a variety of tastes and appetites. The crepe Florentine ($8), a time- honored favorite, has been touched up uniquely with some sunflower seeds and a cilantro-Parmesan sauce. The BBQ shredded pork and cheddar cheese crepe ($8) and copious Godfather ($8), loaded with pepperoni, mozzarella, salami, roasted red peppers and spinach, are two of our favorites. – Monyka Berrocosa-Marbach, Baltimore Examiner
- Crêpes are made before your eyes, filled with an assortment of sweet or savory goodies, and folded into the perfect on-the-go meal. The fillings are, by turn, hearty (sliced turkey, pesto mayo and cranberry chutney, for example), inventive (fresh spinach, mushrooms, Gruyère, sunflower seeds and cilantro-Parmesan sauce, for one) and just plain decadent (bananas and homemade butterscotch), but we're suckers for the simple bliss of molten Nutella. – Gayot
- Sofi's Crepes are fantastic! They are freshly made right in front of you and they have so many different types to choose from. The service was great, and the atmosphere was very casual. The prices are fantastic, too, and right next to the Charles Theater, so it's a perfect place to get a light snack before a flick! – Katie M., Insider Pages
