Crepes & Co. Savory Crepe

Tastemaker
By Lynda Wheatley | Aug. 4, 2018

We’re not sure there’s a better way to improve your hyper-rushed morning than ordering up a crepe stuffed with ham, cheese, and egg — scrambled or sunny — at French chef Vanessa Grasset's Crepes & Co. Freshly made far faster than any drive-thru McBreakfast available, this buckwheat masterpiece is super-sized, brushed with butter, and — we’re not proud of this — easily handheld so you can devour while driving downtown TC's congested summer streets. $9.50, gluten-free, and available to go or to stay at Crepes & Co. inside the State Street Marketplace, 329 E. Front St. in Traverse City. Open seven days a week. (231) 590-9221.
