Sofi’s Crepes To Expand Through Franchising

Walking down the street, you notice a group gathered at a window shop. You pause to see what the commotion is and through the window see a machine creating mouthwatering crepes. The delicious smell grabs you by the hand and leads you into the shop to indulge your sweet tooth. Although it may feel like Paris, you’re actually in Baltimore.

Gone are the blue-haired line cooks of the Women’s Industrial Exchange luncheonette. Actually, they’ve been gone a long time. The space the lunch counter occupied—vacant for a decade—clanks and sizzles like a restaurant ought to once again, this time with a team of far younger girls and more exotic fare.)

Baltimore Sun review, January 24, 2007

This delicious crepe, $7.35, came folded into a triangle and wrapped in a thin foil, which made eating on the go easy. It was filled with rich cheddar cheese, some egg and spinach. The spinach leaves were cooked for less time than with the other crepes, which made them slightly crunchier – a plus, if you ask us. Even though there was a line, the order was ready in only five minutes. We were big fans)

Best Place to Eat Alone

First of all, Sofi’s is named after a dog. If single people can’t relate to that, we don’t know who can. Secondly? Sofi’s is a petite place, although newly renovated to supply more than just takeout, so the urge to spend long hours canoodling with a date is suppressed. Instead, Sofi’s gives solo diners the opportunity to perch at a small bar facing Charles Street. And with yummy crêpe creations—like Sofi’s Suzette, with Gran Marnier and marmalade, or the Kevin Bacon, a turkey, bacon, cheese, and tomato treat the actor himself vouches for—you’ll be satisfied. Finally, Sofi’s wraps each crêpe in a neat to-go package, so if the romantic French décor gets the best of you, and you happen to see Mr. or Ms. Right storming out of a bad date at the neighboring Charles Theatre, you can chase that sexy beast down—without a drippy string of Gruyère on your chin)

A local North Charles Street favorite has just added a little wiggle room. You’ll actually be able to sit down and enjoy your order at Sofi’s Crepes.Owner/chef Ann Costlow says she’s expanded the creperie to include a small area for seating. The 20-foot-by-8-foot area – previously storage space for the Everyman Theatre next door – offers a window-front view of Charles Street. Costlow describes it as “very New York.” There is a sparkly sylestone counter along the window, with about eight stools. A banquette sits just behind, which can seat another 10 folks.Adding more sparkle to the space are a glittery vinyl floor and a rotating exhibit of artwork that will come courtesy of the Schuler School of Fine Arts at Maryland Institute College of Art and the Creative Alliance.Costlow says one thing that hasn’t changed is the menu. It still offers sweet and savory crepes – about a dozen of each – in prices that range from $4 to $8.To celebrate the “new and improved” Sofi’s, Costlow is throwing a grand-opening celebration at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. Baltimore zydeco band the Crawdaddies will perform.Otherwise, you’ll find Sofi’s Crepes open from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday. Sofi’s, 410-727-7732, is at 1723 N. Charles St.

“When Sofi’s Crepes first opened, we thought, ‘The only thing better than having a little stand making wonderful, fluffy, handheld crepes right next to the Charles Theatre would be if the Charles would let us take them into the movie.’ And then the Charles went ahead and did just that, and we’ve been pretty much delirious with pleasure ever since.”
