Mod’s Coffee and Crepes

The Collective — a great little coffeehouse across from TU — closed before I had a chance to review it. I was heartbroken to lose what may have been the best place in town to sit and grade papers over cappuccino.

Much to my delight, I learned this evening that the owners of The Collective have opened a new business downtown called Mod’s Coffee and Crepes.

The restaurant, located at 507 S. Boston Ave., is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Although it doesn’t offer the same Tulsa-themed sandwiches and salads as The Collective, and the vibe is decidedly different, Mod’s offers a to-die-for mushroom soup and the usual assortment of coffee drinks, teas, and Italian sodas made with Torani syrup (including several sugar-free varieties), along with crepes — including a spinach-and-artichoke option for vegetarians and a s’mores crepe stuffed with chocolate chips and marshmallow creme — and a nice selection of gelato.

I’d already finished dinner when I found out about the existence of Mod’s, but I found room for a cup of soup, a passable decaf cappuccino, and a small helping of a lovely Andes-chocolate-mint gelato.

Coffee prices are a bit higher than average, but the other products’ prices are all in line with those of similar products I’ve had at other businesses, the service is good, and the upscale-hipster atmosphere seems well-suited to a neighborhood that includes a growing number of trendy little restaurants and places to see and be seen.

The free Wi-Fi connection is good, too — so good that I managed to post this review from my iPad while I was finishing my coffee.

For more information, call Mod’s at (918) 582-MODS or visit www.modscrepes.com.
