In case you haven’t noticed, Avian flu has resulted in the loss of millions of poultry in America this year. That has resulted in the skyrocketing prices of eggs. Our eggs, from local producer Willamette Egg Farms have been affected as well. We now pay over 3 times the price for the eggs in in our crepes.
Eggs are a critical ingredient in our crêpes (and our pastries and cookies). We use a much higher proportion of eggs in our crêpe batter than many restaurants that offer crêpes. Our customers like the richness and we like our customers. They are now a higher percentage of cost than the real creamery butter we use.
At this point we are absorbing the price increase. In the future, we may have to increase prices. We hope not, but if it comes to that, we hope you understand.
