Not long after beginning their relationship, Fabrison?s co-owners Fabrice and Alison?from Marseilles, France and Columbus, Ohio, respectively?traveled to Europe together, seeking a change of scenery. Inspired by the warm hospitality of European caf?s, they returned home to open their own cozy shop, combining their first names to form its distinctive moniker. Crepes are the specialty at Fabrison?s, with customers perusing a menu of sweet, savory, and breakfast iterations of the traditional French food. The La Galette combines ham, mushrooms, and spinach with a fried egg, whereas the L?Isabelle keeps its ingredients as simple as Count von Count?s locker combination, mingling sugar, butter, and a topping of powdered sugar. Patrons can begin their mornings with a spot of espresso and Fabrice?s Breakfast Crepe, filled with sausage, bacon, and spicy harissa sauce. Rounding out the menu is a selection of patisserie-style desserts and pastries. The couple?s friends and family helped them plan their caf??s look, with Fabrice?s mother sending over photos and swatches from European cafes, which influenced its bright palette of crimson, gold, and washed turquoise. Alison?s mother sewed the gingham curtains on the windows, and artist Derek Little created the vivid painting on the front window. Fabrison?s also shares French culture with the community through regular evening events that include crepe-cooking classes, French movie nights, French speaking classes, and French kissing workshops.
