Although it just looks like a basic hole-in-the-wall eatery, Twisted Crepe is definitely one of Asheville’s hidden treasures. They go big on breakfast crepes in all flavors plus serve up lunch and dessert fare made to your specifications. No matter what you order, they use a variety of tasty ingredients for the center of their crepes to take your dining experience to the next level.

With so many tasty combos available, you can come by every day without ever tiring of the options. You can even take the bull by the horns and make up your own recipes. You just have to select from their meat, veggies, fruit, and other goodies to create a flavor profile to remember. Just don’t forget to experiment with the spices and sauces to find your perfect recipe.

Once you get your order, you’ll want to settle down at their bar or one of their tables to enjoy your selections. Their crepes can be a bit messy, especially if you get a rather saucy one. But it’s well worth the extra napkins you’ll need.

Their most tantalizing items include:

The Big Zebowsky
The Big Zebowsky packs a powerful punch of flavor in every bite. This crepe comes filled to the brim with bacon, sausage, and eggs plus a generous helping of mozzarella cheese. To that, they add three veggies of your choice plus whatever sauce piques your interest.

Parris’s Smoked Trout
People come from far and wide for a taste of their Parris’s Smoked Trout crepe. At the center of this delightful crepe is locally sourced trout smoked to perfection. It also gets tomato, spinach, sprouts, and cream cheese. A balsamic reduction finishes it all off and leaves you wanting to come back for more.

The Faithful
When you order up The Faithful, you’ll never miss the meat. This savory crepe begins with a healthy portion of avocado, mushrooms, green peppers, sprouts, spinach, and tomato. To take all those flavors to the next level, it also includes mozzarella, spices, and sun-dried tomato pesto.

Pace’s Just Nutella
Sometimes it’s best to keep it simple and you can do just that by ordering Pace’s Just Nutella. The crepe is first prepared just right and then smothered in tons of Nutella spread. The Nutella melts down into a silky smooth cream that heightens the lightly sweet flavors of the crepe.

Reese’s Cup
When you prefer to go all out, you can always count on the Reese’s Cup to satisfy your cravings. When you order this crepe, you get a mix of chocolate, Nutella, and peanut butter in the center. Whipped cream over the top balances the rich flavors inside, giving you true decadence in every bite.

Although their crepes are plenty filling on their own, you can upgrade to a meal for an extra charge. They allow you to pair your crepe with chips, yogurt, or a yogurt parfait plus a fountain drink the flavor of your choice. You just have to let them know about the additions when you order and they’ll serve it up right away.
