I’m not sure HOW I’ve always missed this place, considering I’m on this exact street so often for dinner; but I was lucky my friend Mariyam pointed it out as we were looking for a place to have dessert last night (and yes, that’s the blurry top of her head in the picture above; I’m sure she’d want me to point that out).
We sat down and ordered lattes (which we were pleasantly surprised at the generous sized servings), and a nutella crepe with strawberries and bananas.
The crepe itself was good, a little tougher, maybe even smaller, but I’d say not as good as my favorite Creperie ones.
Though, Crooked Tree definitely has one thing on my favorite crepe joint — SPACE, and a very cozy dimly-lit, even romantic, ambiance (further confirmed by the many couples that stopped in while my fellow Chicagoan and I indulged in catch-up conversations).
Oh and, it’s cash only, so make sure you make a pit stop to the ATM before sitting down to avoid the fumbling mess you might find yourself in after your chow down!
