For over a decade, Flint Crepe Company has been a staple in the Flint community. Since our inception, we’ve been driven by core values: local sourcing, a seasonal menu, wholesome ingredients, and providing options for every dietary need. As we’ve grown and evolved, these principles have remained at the heart of everything we do. We’re thrilled to unpack what these concepts truly mean to us and how they shape your experience at our creperie.
Dedication to Scratch-Made Quality
In the Flint Crepe Company kitchen, creativity and quality are the heart of everything we do. Each crepe, syrup, and sauce is made from scratch, giving us complete control over the flavors and quality of our dishes. You should check out our recipe binder – packed with notes, iterations, and improvements. A prime example is our chai recipe, refined more than 100 times over the years. Each tweak and test has been a step towards achieving the perfect balance of spices. This commitment to continuous improvement and attention to detail is what makes every dish at Flint Crepe Company truly special.
Seasonal Ingredients for Diverse Flavors
One of the joys of being located in Michigan is the distinct change of seasons, each bringing its own bounty of flavors. At Flint Crepe Company, our menu is a vibrant celebration of these seasonal shifts. By sourcing ingredients that are currently in season locally, we ensure that our crepes are not only bursting with freshness but also capture the essence of Michigan’s diverse seasons. This practice brings an ever-changing variety to our menu, offering new and exciting flavors throughout the year.
Local Wholesome Ingredients at Flint Crepe Company
Our commitment to local, whole food sourcing is at the heart of our philosophy. By choosing ingredients that are fresh and organic whenever possible, we not only support our local community but also ensure that our offerings are both tasty and nourishing. We believe that great food should leave you feeling good long after your meal is finished, providing a dining experience that’s satisfying, energizing, and leaves you feeling content.
Specialty Drinks: Coffee, Tea, & Syrups
Our specialty drinks at Flint Crepe Company are a blend of quality and ethics. We source our coffee beans through direct-trade relationships, focusing on quality and sustainability, detailed further in a previous blog post. Our teas, from Rishi Tea, are selected for their premium taste and sustainable sourcing. Additionally, we craft all our syrups in-house, using organic cane sugar and spices from Mt. Rose Herbs, ensuring wholesome flavors, free of corn syrup and other common additives.
Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Options, and More: A Menu for Everyone
At Flint Crepe, we understand the challenge of finding delicious options for specific dietary preferences or restrictions. Our menu is incredibly versatile and customizable, catering to vegans, vegetarians, gluten-free, dairy-free, and meat lovers alike. We are dedicated to inclusivity, ensuring that everyone can enjoy a satisfying meal, regardless of their dietary choices.
From our scratch-made crepes and coffee to our locally sourced ingredients and inclusive menu, every aspect of our restaurant is designed with you in mind. Our dedication to quality and our community shines through in every dish we serve. Our goal is to provide an experience that’s not just delicious but also genuinely fulfilling.
