BIRMINGHAM, Mich. (WXYZ) - Birmingham resident Paul Jenkins Jr. opens a new European-inspired crepe cafe, What Crepe? A crepe is a European, thin, cooked, pancake-like food made of wheat flour, corn flour, or flour. They are filled with anything from meat or veggies to fruit or sweet syrups.
This is the second What Crepe? cafe from the fifth generation entrepreneur. The first has been in Royal Oak for three years.
"I visited a restaurant in Toronto that had this sophisticated yet seductive vibe," says Jenkins. "I came back the next day and sketched out a business plan."
What Crepe? offers over 50 varieties for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. Vegetarian and vegan crepes are available.
The new space is available for private events too.
The cafe is located at 172 N. Old Woodward Ave in downtown Birmingham and is a member of the Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber.
