Firefly Café and Crêperie: Welcome, new WSB sponsor

(8/14 note: To check whether a business is still a current WSB sponsor, please go here)

Today we welcome one of WSB’s newest sponsors, Firefly Café and Crêperie on the north end of The Junction:

What proprietor Charell Estby hears most often from Firefly customers is: “Finally! We really needed a new/good breakfast place!” The promise of a clean, cozy café where delighting our customers is our #1 goal, with mouth-watering crepes and amazing coffee, keeps them coming back! Additionally, at Firefly we recognize and can appreciate the diverse dietary needs of our community. We believe everyone who goes out to eat should be able to find something fabulous on the menu, no matter what their diet calls for. Options are good! We’ve got ’em. For Paleo, Vegan, Gluten-Free, as well as your average Carnivore! We’re playing with recipes and delighting our customers with new treats all the time. Don’t be surprised if we ask you to test out our crepe-o-the-day, or our soups, or muffins … the list goes on … (Here’s the menu, by the way.)

Firefly has a monthly volunteer-event program which we are just kicking off this month. Each month Firefly will sponsor and our employees will participate in a volunteer event. For March we are volunteering at the Food Lifeline in SODO. We became involved with Food Lifeline from the day we opened our doors back in November. Since then, we have donated hundreds of pounds of food & coffee. Our donations have benefited programs within the White Center Salvation Army, providing food for various dietary needs (vegan, gluten-free, meat products), regular and decaffeinated coffees, hot cereal, and many dairy products as well. It seemed a natural next step to choose Food Lifeline for our very first Firefly Café-sponsored Volunteer Event.

Firefly Café and Crêperie – now open 7 days a week – is at 4160 California SW (corner of SW Genesee), online at, and on Facebook here (where you’ll see updates on daily specials). And you can now TEXT your order – 206-455-6321here’s how it works.

    I love this place!! It’s always discouraging to pay for my food and get my drinks only to discover after turning the corner that all the seats are taken though. Hope they can move into a larger space someday.

    Nice to see them as a sponsor! I loved the lemon crepe–just like my european grandma used to make. I wasn’t converted from Stbx to the coffee though. It was just “okay.” Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. I’ll pop in there from time to time. It’s a nice small, local business I’d like to support.

    justme, I totally agree. I love the place and would go much more often if I could find seating every time. It’s just not the same taking it home and reheating it, or eating in the car. But they are wonderful and so friendly, and the food is great.

    Although the crepes and coffee are fabulous, my favorite are the soups, a must try if you haven’t had a chance to yet. Thank you Charell.

  • Jen March 20, 2013 (12:00 pm)

    LOVE Firefly! It is hard to find a seat at busy times, but when the weather improves, they have these cute little cardboard crepe holders and you can nibble and stroll – just delightful!

  • Rhonda March 20, 2013 (12:51 pm)

    Being a vegetarian, it is great to have options in both crepes and soups. Plus I love the space!

  • Charell March 20, 2013 (2:29 pm)

    Thanks for the love! If you haven’t been in in over a week or so, you might not have seen the ADDITIONAL SEATING! Yep! We’re listening. Also – Spring is coming and we have an awning going up and outdoor seating plans taking shape as well. Come see us again soon. =)

    Thank you for being such great supporters of Food Lifeline and for volunteering with us this month. We are so grateful for all the many ways you are helping feed hungry neighbors!

  • justme March 20, 2013 (5:56 pm)

    Wow, Nice Charell! Thank you!

  • Charell March 20, 2013 (7:22 pm)

    We love Food Lifeline! Looking forward to next week =)
