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 crêpes and beverages at Twisted Crêpe on Haywood Street.
Cooking up an extensive menu of custom crêpes, Twisted Crêpe satiates hankerings for sweet and savory battered delights. Creative customers can craft their ideal crêpes from a smorgasbord of parts, fashioning ideal culinary companions for lovelorn taste buds.
Savory crêpes (starting at $5.99) allow diners to choose five veggies, one sauce, and one cheese—with an array of proteins ready to be sprinkled in for an additional fee—and the sweet crêpes (starting at $4.99) present dessert lovers with the chance to choose one fruit and one sugary spread.
Those paralyzed by choice can narrow their options with predesigned delicacies such as the Faithful, loyally stuffed with avocado and other veggies along with seasoning, mozzarella, and sun-dried tomato pesto ($6.99), as well as the Reese's cup, bursting with peanut butter, chocolate, Nutella, and whipped cream ($4.99).
Drinks such as coffee ($1 small, $1.50 large) and tea ($1.49) caffeinate tired minds tuckered out after cerebral debates over which of the Founding Fathers was the strongest swimmer. Meals are enjoyed in Twisted Crêpe's stylishly cozy interior, which sports seating along a wooden bar and at intimate tables, as well as art-lined walls and a giant flat-screen television.
