Ooooh kids. It’s been a while since I’ve featured a Louisville Kickstarter project. I saw this one on Friday though and couldn’t wait to tell you about it! Some clever, creative person wants to turn an old Moby Dick location into “The Waffle & Crepe Co.”
The Waffle Project wants to refresh a neighborhood icon, and the community around it. The Waffle & Crepe Co. has big plans, and they need you! After setting up at the St. Matthews Farmers Market last year, and particpating in events, like Buy Local First, we’re ready to expand. Our localcentric, seasonal menu showcases KY Proud products, bringing the taste of European street food to Louisville. Along with crepes and waffles, we will feature real smoothies, coffee from Red Hot Roasters, and gelato. Eventually, we would like to be open late for you night owls!
Donations will go toward repainting the exterior of the Moby Dick, including the roof and an Alice Water’s inspired mural on the side. The landscaping will be changed, adding color with new indigenous plants and flowers. Also, a garden will be established to inspire everyone’s inner gardener with the bounty of Kentucky. New signage will be needed, as well as more usable patio space.
I’m in, I’ve already made my pledge to back the project and I really hope you do too. Here’s a video that highlights some of their deliciousness that I think will inspire you to support the project because dude, we need access to food like this on a regular basis, not just a Saturday morning farmers market.
