Flint Crepe Company

Welcome to Flint Crepe Company, where any combination of ingredients can be thrown together, wrapped in a pancake, and called a meal. This little number contains black beans, sweet potatoes, salsa, peppers, cheese, heirloom tomatos, sour cream--that's right, Mexi-French fusion, made with local Flint ingredients. Delish!

There's some pretty racy stuff on the "savory" menu: salmon and cream cheese, Farmer's Market sampler, apples and carmelized onions, other things I would never think to tumble up in a crepe, which I know best filled with Nutella. (This was my main foray into French cuisine during a trip to Paris five years ago.) Flint Crepe Company also offers a vegan and gluten-free menu.

Though I used the veggies to trick BCB into a dinner there a few weeks ago, I go for the "sweet" side of the menu. Most importantly: cream cheese with any kind of fruit they offer. We went before the holidays, and they were serving Calder's egg nog lattes too.

As you can tell by this bike hanging from the ceiling, Flint Crepe Company is violently hipster-friendly, down to the decor. Even the servers wear cute Newsies hats and flannel shirts. It's the only downtown coffee shop open past 4:30 PM during the week--they sling crepes from 7 AM to 10 PM Monday through Saturday. I can just see the Continental-inspired tables filling up with hoodied twenty-somethings curled over their MacBooks. I call the table in the corner.


  1. I was really impressed with the Flint Crape Co. I can't wait to go there again.

  2. My husband and I stopped in on St. Patrick's Day for a sweet treat and we were so pleased. YUMMY!!!!! Everyone was so nice and willing to offer advice on what to have. I can't wait to go back for lunch
