The French inspired American café has relocated from the Lansing City Market to bring gluten-free options to the Downtown area.
Lansing, MI – The popular French inspired Lansing City Market merchant, For Crêpe Sake, has moved to a new downtown location at 221 S. Washington Square.
For Crêpe Sake is an American café steeped in French tradition that boasts a wide variety of sweet and savory crepes. With a focus on making gluten-free and vegan options available to the Downtown Lansing area they offer up several different breakfast and lunch options that allow their patrons to customize their meal. Apart from crepes the café also boasts specialty coffee roasted by Zingerman’s, Iorio’s gelato, homemade soups, and build-your-own chopped salads.
The location, previously home to The Spotted Dog, has been transformed into a Parisian inspired cozy spot with a very welcoming and friendly staff. The owners hired ten new employees for their new location where their feature dish is made right in front of the customer. “It is really fun to watch the crepes being made, even though we have a full kitchen it was important for me to have them made where every one can see,” said Deborah Owen, who is a co-owner of the café with her husband Mark. The couple had looked at multiple locations before choosing the vacant spot on S. Washington Square, which had the ambiance they were looking for.
For Crêpe Sake is a husband and wife business with hopes to franchise in the future. The two opened the café at its previous Lansing City Market location in June of 2014 with the goal of soon opening a storefront. “This is the most fun thing I have done in my life. Even though it was scary to step out and open up our own business, I’m really glad we did,” said Deborah Owen. “It is beautiful to do what you enjoy.”
For Crêpe Sake is located at 221 S. Washington Square in Downtown Lansing, they are open Monday through Friday 6:30am to 3:00pm and Saturdays from 8:00am to 2:00pm. They offer delivery to the downtown area from 11:00am to 2:00pm.
