West Seattle restaurants: Firefly Café and Creperie winging toward October

Quick update on the Firefly Café and Creperie, soon to take wing on the northeast corner of California and Genesee at the north edge of The Junction, as reported here in June: Proprietor Charell Estby says she is penciling in October 26th-October 28th as the grand-opening weekend. This week, she’s been busy with inspections; the plum-colored paint job you see in our photo went up a month ago. (She told Facebook fans it’s “caramel” inside.)

    I found a coupon in the Best of West Seattle coupon book in today’s post! I’ve clipped it and will visit when you open!

    I’ll be first in line at the opening. This will be an awesome place, I can tell.
    [subtle heads-up on the accents ;-)]

      Don’t be subtle – if something’s wrong, please tell us so we can fix it. I’ve started accenting café wherever I find it but have no idea re: creperie.

    This sounds really good!

    We are so looking forward to it!

    Perfect timing, we’ll be moving in next door in October as well, looking forward to spending a lot of time creping.

    TR, FWIW, Googling and picking a random link, showed that the “^” symbol above the first “e” in Creperie, and the accent mark above the second.

    Mike, that link is to a crepiere (a crepe maker), not a creperie (a crepe restaurant). Creperie has a circumflex (^) over the first ‘e’, no other accents.

    How ever it’s spelled . . . I want you so badly, Firefly! Can’t wait for the opening! Apparently I will be second in line to RG.

    Where’s the menu? (IMO, Facebook is cumbersome, even if the information is there.)

  • breezygirl September 14, 2012 (5:33 am)

    Nutella with strawberries please!! Can’t wait!

  • Charell (Firefly owner) September 14, 2012 (6:36 am)

    So cool to see all of the excitement! I’m looking forward to opening and meeting everyone. The menu will be published on the website when it goes live probably early next month (sweet and savory delights!). I’ll also offer a “build your own” menu – so you can choose your own fillings. Soon, guys! Soon!

    Oh wow, something DIFFERENT in West Seattle!!! I can’t wait.

Sorry, comment time is over.
