The crowd of people waiting outside Break'n Eggs Creperie in the mornings might thin out once the restaurant's operators open a bigger second location on Sweet Home Road.
The Amherst creperie, at 5235 Main St., has been swamped with customers since it opened five years ago. Now Robert Sweeney and his wife Annie are working on a second location near the University at Buffalo's Amherst campus.
It will be called Break'n Eggs Creperie Express, located in University Place, 1280 Sweet Home Road, Suite 4, the former Dunkin' Donuts space next to In-and-Out Pasta.
It has a drive-through. But when the location opens, customers won't be able to order there, just pick up.
The menu of sweet and savory crepes will be similar, with a few additions and omissions, he said.
It won't have servers. Customers will order at the counter and get a buzzer to alert them when their food is ready.
"We're going to start practicing with all the equipment, and getting our timing down," Sweeney said. "We won't be open for two or three weeks."
The space seats 60, making it much larger than the original 40-seat location.
"Maybe we can shift over some of the Main Street morning crowd," Sweeney said. "But a lot of them are regulars, who don't mind waiting." Sometimes when college students return, the waits can get even longer, he noted. "This should help."
