Flippin’ good: Flippin’ Out Crepes & Coffee in Addison

 

I don’t deny being a location snob, in addition to my being a food snob. If I’m going to venture north for food and/or drink, it had better be worth it. Case-in-point? Flippin’ Out Crepes & Coffee in Addison, AKA the Plastic Surgery Capital of The World and a city with more restaurants per square mile than most. Not in a good way, however. But back to Flippin’ Out. We rolled up upon this little spot that looked like it must have been a shaved ice stand in a former life, and immediately realized we’d be takin’ our Flippin’ to-go. We walked in and were immediately greeted, scary-enthusiastically, by about eight people working there. “We’ve been waiting for you,” they cheerfully screamed. Turns out it was their first day open, having had a soft open the day before. Lucky for me. I may have danced a bit while looking at the menu, full of things that sounded awesome. That’s a good sign from this bitch. I asked if they have a mobile truck, to which they replied in the negative, but said it would be a good idea. You’re welcome.

We ordered a cappuccino, an iced coffee, a lemon chicken crepe and a tiramisu crepe. After a quick chat about the annoying-ness of the impending fireworks clusterfuck that’s known as Kaboom Town, our crepes appeared. We shook hands with Chef Scott, took a step and were out the door. We left that tasty little shack excited to try what was inside that little brown bag. 

Once we found a table (these are really not foods you can eat on-the-go; a solid work surface and sharper knives are required), we took the necessary photos and dug in. First up was the lemon chicken crepe: deliciously creamy chicken salad type stuff tucked into a crepe with veggie chips and a savory lemon cream sauce on the side. Really great flavors that made me want to try more of their creations.

Next up: the tiramisu crepe. A filling made of mascarpone cheese blended with chocolate and espresso, this sweet thang was drizzled with caramel sauce. What could be bad? If I was forced by the foodie gods to find something wrong with this dessert, I would say the crepe itself was a bit of a workout to cut into, making the chocolatey, creamy filling ooze out a bit as we cut down into it. A real, metal knife was put into play.

The damage: under $20 for two crepes and two coffee drinks.

The prediction: tables and chairs will appear on the scene outside Flippin’ Out in the coming weeks. 

The wrap up: Flippin’ Out is certainly worth the drive to Addison, but make sure you have a place to sit down and eat it, inside (hello, Texas heat!), with real knives. Then you’re all set for a Flippin’ good meal. Good coffee too.

In regards to you prediction that tables and chairs will appear on the scene outside Flippin’ Out in the coming weeks: I suggested that to the chef, he told me that Addison will not allow it. :(

Love the review! I also ate there. As the person above said there wont be tables and chairs for Flippin Out. They aren’t zoned for this and would need to move to a location that is. Which would be pretty nice. I would love to sit down and enjoy the Crepe’s and talk to the workers. They were all really nice and helpful.
