Located in the South District next to Brio, Fay’s Crepes serves up sweet and savory crepes and waffles that are as versatile as they are unique. The toppings and recipes shape the crepes into breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack, sure to satisfy any craving.
Fay’s Crepes was inspired by the best seller on the menu of Fay Abdi’s Somali cafe, Yaa Salaam Café, which was located in the Banadir Mall on Cleveland Ave. – the heart of Columbus’s Somali community. Though crepes were the last item added to the menu at Yaa Salaam Café, Fay noticed how much everyone loved them. She and her husband made the decision to close the café and open Fay’s Crepes.
You won’t have anything quite like Fay’s Crepes.
Fay Abdi is the founder (and namesake) of Fay’s Crepes. A Somali woman raised in Sweden, she grew up eating a combination of traditional Somali crepes – typically served with savory options like beef stew – and European crepes – typically served with fruits, jams, or Nutella. Fay’s Crepes combines both cultures, not just with sweet and savory topping options, but in the batter itself. She combines her mother’s traditional Somalian recipe and the Swedish recipe she learned in a middle school cooking class, creating a multi-cultural, unique taste. The prep of the crepes begins the night before. The batter is prepared and then left overnight to allow the spices to marinate.

What breakfast item should you try first?
“My favorite breakfast item is the Everything Seasoning Breakfast Croissant, it’s a warm croissant stuffed with fresh cracked eggs and cheese and sprinkled with everything seasoning. I recommend adding protein with our chicken sausage.”
“My favorite sweet item is the Crème Bruleé Crepe, which is actually called “Fay’s Fav” on the menu,” Fay said. “I have a sweet tooth, and that happens to be the sweetest item on the menu.”
We hope you’ll taste the magic for yourself during Black History Month here at Easton!
