The crêpe, or French pancake, was invented in 1923 to make its American counterpart look fat, oafish, and uncouth in comparison. Help the disked dessert maintain its well-deserved sense of superiority with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of café fare at AB’s Coffee & Crepes on 9th Street in Lawrence.
Featured in Lawrence Journal World, AB’s appeases a multitude of meal proclivities with a menu full of hearty breakfasts, lunchtime sandwiches, and namesake crêpes and coffee. The Florentine crêpe, stuffed with mozzarella and feta cheeses, artichoke hearts, spinach, green olives, and garlic, offers savory sustenance to midday munchers ($7), and the Chocolate Bliss crêpe gift wraps Nutella, ricotta cheese, and bananas for bated sweet teeth ($7). Scrambled eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, and chicken join forces under the alter ego Jason to halt hunger and enact vigilante justice on offending jaywalkers ($7.50). Cups of espresso ($1.25), cappuccino ($2.25), and tea ($1.25) enliven afternoon study breaks in AB’s small dining area. Sidle inside or call ahead to order to-go crêpes from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Tuesday–Friday, with slightly longer hours on Saturday and Sunday.
