What might qualify as the city’s best-looking coffeehouse is more than just a caffeine filling station, it’s also a fine quick-service breakfast destination, specializing in skillfully prepared crêpes, both sweet (salted honey butter, cinnamon-sugar) and savory (mozzarella-basil-sundried tomato, ham-Gruyère), at reasonable prices. Another draw? A boffo breakfast sandwich, featuring a fried egg and excellent sausage from Minneapolis’ Lowry Hill Meats, and tempting baked goods from chef Shawn McKenzie. Doors open at 7 a.m. weekdays, 8 a.m. weekends.
