When you grow up eating crepes every day in Brittany, France, your cravings for the warm, delicate wraps don't just go away. Even if you move to a different continent, instead of Europe where crepes grow on vines, the yearning will persist. That's what the founders of The Corner Creperie experienced, and that's why they founded a bistro where crepe batter is concocted from scratch, swept across a smooth griddle, and folded around local, organic ingredients. Chefs make the spot a destination for all types of meals and desserts by arranging ingredients like chocolate and strawberries or cookie butter and salted carmel?for a sweet combination, or creating savory meals with smoked salmon and capers. And depending on the cravings that plague them, customers can sometimes commission chefs to craft a bespoke crepe dish, alchemizing all-new meals from one's imagination instead of the official menu.

They were motivated by a desire to spread the health benefits of the super food, which include weight loss, boosted energy, and finally learning how to pronounce "açaí." Their journey led them to found Vitality Bowls, where they churn out a menu of bowls and smoothies, each oriented around the açaí berry. Cooks complement the starring ingredient with fruits, veggies, and nourishing seeds such as flax and guarana, all organic and locally sourced whenever possible. Additionally, Vitality Bowls' treats are free of frozen yogurt, ice, preservatives, trans fats, and added sugar.
