My Northern Michigan Favs: That French Place
First off, thanks SO much for all your kind emails and words about last week's blog. It seems we are all into 'behind the veil' posts that illuminate the real side of all of this, I appreciate the love!
I'm back this week with another edition of My Northern Michigan Favs! Whenever we do these I highlight one of my fav spots up north for you to try next time you are in this neck of the woods.
This week I'm chatting about That French Place in downtown Charlevoix. Emily & Brian are amazing people who just so happen to have an AMAZING little french place where you can get the. best. crepes, sweet treats and coffee.
I'm a sucker for the Sweetwater Latte (made with our lavender) and a pan au chocolate. What I love most about this spot is their commitment to making food from scratch. Like real food the real way. Where you make things from start to finish (such a concept, I know).
My absolute favorite thing that Brian makes is his coffee ice cream, and their ice cream became so popular they had to open a spot just for it! Brian's Ice Cream Experience is just across the street from their location of That French Place on Charlevoix's main drag and is open during the summer months.
In the winter months TFP provides 'dinners to go' during the week, but more often than not I am in there to grab a crepe. Pro tip: go with savory- with swiss cheese, onion & spinach. My mouth is watering!
Tell Emily I sent you, and plan a visit, you won't be disappointed. Their obsession with all things French comes through in the tiny cafe tables, the effortless atmosphere and their commitment to quality ingredients done simply.
