Enjoyed a beautiful morning in Austin with yummy crepes from Flip Happy crepes. The wait is long, but the crepes were amazing. We had the lemon curd blueburry, peanutbutter chantelle cream, ended with scrambled egg crepe. All so good.

After ordering, we have told that wait would be 20 minutes. After 1h00 we finally had the crepes. Too long for me to appreciate. Especially when I saw that people arriving after me getting their crepes before me!!! If I have been told that the wait was 1hour, I would not have order them. And where is the trick to cut the line?

My husband has been resisting trying this place, being afraid of encountering tiny food, so I went with a friend. The chicken pesto crepe (both light & dark meat) was the size of a med-large burrito & was delish. Friend's veggie crepe was also nicely sized & tasty.
Nutella & banana crepe ROCKED.
We were early, so our wait wasn't too bad. If you're in a hurry, just call in your order ahead of time.

This little trailer serves up some fantastic crepes. In fact, they beat Bobby Flay of the Food Network in a "" Crepe Throwdown,"" in which Flay challenges ""the best of the best."" Flip Happy Crepes certainly qualifies. My wife and I went the other day for lunch, and I LOVED the chicken pesto crepe, while she adored the Roasted Chicken with goat cheese and carmelized onions. The only drawback is that the wait is too long for the typical lunch break. With only a couple of crepe griddles, the staff can't meet the demand very quickly. Nevertheless, it is WORTH the wait.

This is 5 stars for food but have to deduct one star for the fact cars park randomly in the lot, you sit in the open in mismatched rickety tv trays and lawn chairs and wait sometime sup to 30 minutes for your meal....but man is it worth it when you taste them. Whether it is savory or sweet you are going for you will not be let down with how good these are.
Not a good place for dates or children (especially mom's with strollers who are looking for a spot ro sit). I give up my chair but they'll loose a finger if they ask for a bite of my crepe! D-licious!

Wasn't aware of the long wait. After a not so bad 10 minute wait to place order it was an hour until food was ready. By that time I was so irriated and uncomfortable by the heat I managed to take a few bites of my food and couldn't eat anymore. Crepe was flavorful but couldn't enjoy it after waiting so long in the mid day heat, but can't nessecarily wait until the evening when it cools down a bit...they are closed. Definately wait until the cooler months...I'm sure they are great.

So this weekend we took a girls' trip to Austin. Saturday morning/afternoon was almost devoted to Flip Happy!! We wanted to try to the crepes so badly that we waited in line, in the blazing hot sun, for one full hour. As each minute passed, we kept asking each other, ""is this really going to be worth it?"" The four of us ordered different lunch crepes, and two of the dessert crepes. When our food was finally ready, another half hour or so, we couldn't wait to dig in. It looked and smelled fantastic. As we each bit into the crepes, we were amazed by how YUMMY they were!! Each one had different sauces, flavors, spices, and yet each one was phenomenal. It's hard to go somewhere and leave with everyone being exceptionally enthused about the experience, but Flip Happy did it for us. We will definitely be returning to Flip Happy whenever we visit Austin again.
