Founded in 2010, Mod's makes a great addition to Tulsa's growing Deco District renaissance. Enter from the street or through the ground-floor arcade of the ornate 1931 Philcade building. You can eat inside the restaurant, but we recommend grabbing a table within the Philcade. There, marvel at the gold-leaf barrel-vaulted ceilings, bronze-filigreed chandeliers, Art Deco grillwork over the front doors and brilliant geometric patterns inside the elevator.
The short breakfast menu presents some tempting choices, like the French toast crepe with brown sugar, butter and cinnamon ($3) and a variation on eggs Florentine with spinach, scrambled eggs, mozzarella and tomatoes ($6). All crepes are made fresh to order and served steaming hot with golden brown ends lightly tucked over the fillings inside.
Lunch and dinner crepes are reasonably priced with savory options such as pesto chicken Parmesan with artichoke hearts ($6.50). Sweet crepes take in yummy-sounding choices such as banana pudding with vanilla wafers ($5) and a s’mores crepe with chocolate chips, marshmallow cream and graham cracker crumbles ($5). Salads, soups and light sides (chips, fruit cups) are available; Mod’s also specializes in espresso and gelato (flavors change weekly).
