In the small town of Sykesville, Md., lies Main Street, where a picturesque blue house with a large front porch has a steady flow of customers. At the
entrance, the smell of freshly brewed coffee and sweet cinnamon sugar fills the air. Conversation, laughter and footsteps are just some of the sounds visitors hear on a typical day. This popular, small-town gathering place is called The French Twist Café.
Only 25 minutes from Owings Mills, this café is perfect for study sessions, brunch dates and conversations with friends. The welcoming staff helps make this spot feel like home. On a sunny, beautiful day, customers can sit on the front porch; however, most of the seating is upstairs where tables and couches invite conversation.
The French Twist Café is known by locals for its tasty coffee and crêpes. Stepping into the café, large crêpes are being made behind a transparent glass counter. Eager customers await their treat after browsing the large menu with endless choices.
Craving something sweet? The café has sweet choices, such as the Crêpe à la banane et au Nutella with bananas and Nutella, as well as savory crêpes for those who want a filling option such as the
La Canadienne, with egg, crispy bacon, cheddar and maple syrup. Fresh-baked pastries including chocolate croissants and apple turnovers are made every morning but are purchased quickly, as these are favorites in the town.
For those with gluten-free diets, don’t worry! The French Twist Café has a gluten-free option for all crêpes for just $1 extra. To complete the meal, choose specialty brewed lattes, iced coffees or delicious fresh smoothies.
There is something for everyone to enjoy at the French Twist Café. On April 1, 2016, the store celebrated its two-year anniversary. Throughout the two years, it has developed new flavors and additions to the menu, as well as new relationships with the locals and new events for all to enjoy.
