There are several locations throughout Tampa Bay; however, this is not a chain. Instead, they like to consider themselves a network of breakfast, brunch, and lunch restaurants. Each location has a slightly different menu, yet some of the standard offerings are French toast, pancakes (that are “to die for”), Belgian waffles, omelets, and Creppeggs. They’re a thin, sweet crepe, with some fluffy whipped eggs rolled up inside
