the crepe myrtle cafe

Over the weekend, my sister-in-law introduced Husband and I to The Crepe Myrtle Cafe in Auburn, Alabama. And let me tell you, it is an absolute jewel. It's not just a cafe. It's a place. As in the "Sense of Place" literarians discuss in rhythmic, reverent tones.

(Yeah, I know I just made up a word. If I were French, I wouldn't legally be able to do that.)

The Crepe Myrtle Cafe is a crepe and pastry cafe that's part of a small Farmer's Market that's part of a lovely little nursery called Blooming Colors. They have jars of jams, dressings, old-fashioned peppermints, and canisters seeds, beans, and grains that you can fill with bags and take home to create photo-worthy edibles.

You can watch them cook the crepes and fill them with the freshest organic ingredients and dressings, directly from their Farmer's Market, directly from their nursery.

So, if you ever find yourself in Auburn, Alabama, The Crepe Myrtle Cafe is on the right by Kinnucan's across from the J&M Bookstore :)
