I was wondering if anyone could recommend to me somewhere that has good blintzes or crepes and also mimosas, as I am going out with my family for a graduation brunch and this is what I need to celebrate my four years of schooling!

Crepes have been strongly demanded here and for good reason, but to no avail as far as I know. lizless must be backlogged.
First Watch might be a possibility for a decent crepe, but not likely what you’re looking for.June 4, 2008 7:23 am at 7:23 am #206422
I’m thinking the Worthington Inn serves crepes with their brunch. You might give them a call.June 4, 2008 7:43 am at 7:43 am #206423
you may want to check with Lindey’s in German Village…They have a really great breakfast they serve-can’t remember if it included crepes—if the patio is open ask to sit outside…it is really kinda enchanting to sit out there and have brunch.June 4, 2008 8:12 am at 8:12 am #206424
My friend Caroline at work is starting a crepe cart, so far has had several successful test runs at small get-togethers.
She is looking for places to make crepes this summer!! So let me know if you have an event you’d like to have crepes at. I’ll pass the word along.
She’s the foodie/good cook type, can’t wait to try this stuff.June 4, 2008 8:45 am at 8:45 am #206425June 4, 2008 9:36 am at 9:36 am #206426
don’t go to first watch, no mimosas. :)June 4, 2008 9:38 am at 9:38 am #206427
Whole foods has a creperie. They are pretty good. That is about the only place I can think of.June 4, 2008 9:45 am at 9:45 am #206428

Damn, I didn’t know Lindy’s did brunch….
Back on topic, I know First Watch has crepes….I’ve never had them, the rest of their food is pretty good though.June 4, 2008 9:48 am at 9:48 am #206429
Cafe Corner has them…or at least I have had them there in the past.
They were absolutely fantastic.June 4, 2008 9:53 am at 9:53 am #206430
this is his graduation brunch though, i doubt he wants to go to whole foods.
that said i have no suggestions. :lol:
just go to lindey’s or worthington inn.June 4, 2008 5:36 pm at 5:36 pm #206431
Late night crepes off a cart is a brilliant idea. Reminds me of Paris after you leave the clubs. She should set up shop in Short North on weekends and definitely at Comfest.
Re: First Watch crepes… eh. They’re fine but they have a weird mixture of fruit in them (mostly bananas). I would personally expect either berries, or a buttery/lemon creme. mmmmm…. And yeah, no mimosas.June 5, 2008 12:17 am at 12:17 am #206432

I’m more into the Key West crepe (Smoked turkey, avocado, bacon, tomatoes and Monterey Jack cheese. Topped with sour cream.) But again, First Watch isn’t what I would recommend to fruitjam. We probably have to lose the crepe requirement and think about the overall experience. But then it becomes a general brunch discussion, which probably has multiple threads floating around somewhere.
The Lindey’s recommendation is certainly a good one. I’ll throw out Due Amici to add another option: http://www.due-amici.com/brunch.html
I think we need to connect Manatee’s friend up with some Mr./Mrs. DeepPockets and get a real store front set up. Or maybe a CU collective ownership. Who’s in?June 5, 2008 1:26 am at 1:26 am #206433
Back when I was a young coyote in Key West, I lived in a house with a young Quebecois named Paul. Paul would somehow make the most excellent crepes out of my cast iron frying pan. The fruit we had at the time was basically what we could find cheap, and so included bananas and mangoes stolen from neighbors trees.
Oddly enough, I could manage to make great “cafe con leche” out of my old moka pot and a steamer pot I had at the time.
I’m guessing the Crepes made everything taste better.
Also, access to the crazy German girls who lived there made everything taste better.June 5, 2008 6:20 pm at 6:20 pm #206434
Not only does this place have an amazing, extensive brunch menu, it also serves crepes (under the dessert selection.)
Oh, and there’s always the Bob Evans option :D
First Watch crepes are a tad too bland (and healthy-tasting) for my liking.
