One of the early arrivals on the Austin trailer scene, Flip Happy is a vintage Avion that opened its windows in 2006. Owners Nessa Higgins and Andrea Day Boykin blazed a path for a long line of other mobile-food pioneers. Past victors on the Food Network’s Throwdown! with Bobby Flay, Andrea and Nessa whip up sweet and savory crepes, stuffed with such delights as Gruyère cheese, shredded pork, caramelized onions, and Nutella and bananas. Take just one bite of these French johnnycakes and you’ll believe the slogan: “Made from Scratch with Love.” Be sure to check the Web site before visiting, as the hours change on a regular basis (often open until 9 on Friday evenings).
