Brown Butter Creperie Grand Opening
When I taught my food styling class at The Found Cottage, I met two lovely girls who were opening a crepe shop in East Town, Grand Rapids in the old Cakabakery location. They came up to me during the class and told me who they were and what they were doing and I instantly got giddie. I'm a man of many things but when crepes are involved...I'll drop everything. I love crepes so much. Especially if it has blueberries on it.
Last week ( February 15th ) the crepe shop had finally opened and I had to make a visit. I walked in remembering what the Cakabakery looked like. With loving the architecture of the building I knew that the girls wouldn't change it drastically. As I walked in, the smell of crepes, the warmth lighting, and the beautiful flowers instantly made me swoon.
Here's a little more about the Creperie

I don't know what is.
