Just like moms and middle-school wrestling coaches, warm crêpes will always welcome your ideas with their delicate embrace. Wrap up sweet fruits and savory meats alike with today's Groupon. For $6, you get $12 worth of crêpes and coffee at Good Girls Go To Paris Crepes. Nestled amid Detroit's downtown art museums, this crêpe cafe holds its own with inspired European ambience and beautifully plated crêpes.
The crêperie offers nearly 50 predetermined combos of crêpes ranging from $4.50–$8.00 depending on fillings. Each warmly wrapped medley is bestowed with a name to match its distinct personality. Take Rachel, a sassy s'mores-infused crêpe who likes long hikes through the forest, or Dana, who embraces hearty chicken, bold brie, pesto, and sun-dried tomatoes. Vera garnishes her purse with glistening bacon, decadent boursin cheese, and green-leafed spinach. Liz, a strawberry-infused blonde, picks blueberries by day and moisturizes with nutella each night before bed. Good Girls Go To Paris Crepes also serves up Intelligentsia and fair-trade coffees to even out a sweet tooth with bold-roasted brews.
Owner and operator Torya Blanchard birthed her litter of crêpe babies throughout her travels in both the United States and Europe. With each stop on her journey, a culinary inspiration expanded Torya's perspective and palate. Now she's serving up her creations in a friendly, Euro-inspired cafe lined with vintage French movie posters and warm walls that wrap diners up without putting them on the menu.
- Blanchard's strawberries, blueberries, pineapples, nutella and powdered sugar – along with their savory counterparts like borsain [sic] cheese, mushrooms, spinach and ham – have been the talk of downtown. Or rather, the ever-so-thin pancake package the delicious toppings are wrapped in have been all the buzz. – Kelli B. Kavanaugh, Model D

Good Girls Go To Paris Crepes
Few places can offer the same type of dish for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. Even fewer can do so while transporting your mind to Paris—but Good Girls Go To Paris Crepes does just that, charming guests and the New York Times with its impressive selection of crepes and its decor. Good Girls' rouge-red walls are decorated with oversized street maps and a Jean-Luc Godard film poster; its crepes are decorated with all manner of sweet and savory fixings.
Each crepe has a name, and true regulars will know just who to order. Vera, for example, contains a mix of bacon, boursin cheese, and spinach, whereas Pascalle holds fig jam and chevre, or goat cheese. Celeste is a little heartier, with roast beef and brie offsetting the tartness of cranberries. Every savory crepe is also available as a salad, or, if you simply unfold it, a very thin pizza.
As for the dessert crepes, they cover mixes of chocolate, fruits, and candies. The Cora hides strawberries and blueberries—a light contrast to the Tynysha's rich Heath bar, ricotta cheese, and chocolate filling. The simplest option, the Seine, delights with its classic flavors of butter and sugar.
