Cibo vs. Marina's Cafe at The Village Coffee Shop: Crepe Clash

In the highly quotable 2006 film Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Rick Bobby, French Formula One driver Jean Girard tries to force Ricky Bobby into saying that he loves crepes or else he'll break his arm.

His response: "Wait, are those the really thin pancakes? Oh my God, I love them." Of course, he ends up refusing to say it and gets his arm broken.

We love crepes. There, we said it -- especially the sweet dessert kind. Since we are dreaming of grabbing a warm one in France, we decided to pay a visit to Cibo Urban Wine Bar & Pizzeria and Marina's Cafe at The Village Coffee Shop to find a spot for the best strawberry crepe.
