Building The Wooden Rooster, a french crepe cafe
We’ve built some fun places and we are pretty picky in our efforts to build in a better, more green way. One of our more recent builds was an easy choice. Building The Wooden Rooster was like taking a step into rural France and I’d like to highlight this delicious, french-american culinary crepe cafe of deliciousness, The Wooden Rooster.
We enjoy getting out and supporting our local businesses for our date nights. And one of our favorite spots is The Wooden Rooster. They have the most perfect, savory and dessert crepes, along with coffee, drinks, salads and more. We frequent the downtown St. Petersburg location, and after a conversation with the owners, we are set to build their second cafe in a new, open style mall in Seminole.
The Wooden Rooster is a great, hangout spot, offering coffees, WIFI, and crepes designed by it’s french owner. Experiencing the culinary, french escape right here in Tampa Bay Florida; minus the expense of a long flight, is a treat. The environment offers a french, modern, organic ambiance as family photos from France hang on the walls. These photos, custom wooden benches, tables and center bar create a “Farm-meets-elegance” charm with a welcoming atmosphere.
As far as the food goes, we highly recommend the Nutty Joe (sans Oreos) with a buckwheat (less gluten) crepe, nutella filling, a scoop of ice cream, with the coffee expresso pour over. Our children love The Burg and the TLT for breakfast and lunch. The menu is constantly changing and visible here.
The Building Difference
Additionally, from a builder’s perspective, the plumbing is built with pipes that do not leach petroleum nor metal. Our effort to build better, means that our clients can use cleaner water in their business. For the walls, we use stains and no VOC paints so that the employees and guests can breathe cleaner air. There are several differences in our work that are a direct result of our experiences that you can watch here.
After breakfast or lunch, the Seminole location is also a destination spot. To walk off the food, you can stroll between shops for every need and want you may have.
Truly, at the end of the day it never ceases to amaze us how in just a few months, our team can take a concrete box, and create a space designed by a wonderful local architect, and end up with something so beautiful. Of course, there is a lot of hard work and it is spectacular to watch.
If you are local to Tampa Bay, The Wooden Rooster is a great destination spot and I’d love to hear which crepe you enjoy the best!
