La Petite Bretagne

Mon dieu, delicious crêpes and galettes in Hammersmith?! Mais oui, a small patch of Brittany has popped up opposite the Hammersmith & City and Circle lines station in Hammersmith. La Petite Bretagne prepares savoury galettes – made with gluten-free buckwheat flour – and sweet crêpes fresh to order.

Classic savoury combinations include ham and cheese as well as spinach, egg and cheese, while sweet crêpes range from sugar and lemon juice to nutella and banana. A chestnut crêpe was exemplary: the layer of crème de marrons generous, but thin enough for the pancake's subtle flavour to shine through.

While galettes and crêpes are no longer a novelty in London, the kouign amann (a buttery Breton pastry) is sure to kindle a few puzzled looks, if only at how to correctly pronounce this regional speciality.

Food can be ordered to take away, but it would be a shame not to linger in the stylish surroundings. Think wooden tables screenprinted with a red gingham pattern, quirky lampshades and displays of salted caramel jars and colourful tins of sardines.

With cidre brut on the menu and opening hours that last from breakfast through to the evening, the café's casual atmosphere might be just what you need to spend une agréable soirée in Hammersmith.

The description seems very informative, maybe you could add a bit more Britanny´s history (why they cook and eat this) and culture, perhaps also something more about the background of setting up this restaurant (the owner or employees)? Who cooks the crepes - the French or the English there? Also more pics of the food would help to attract people - some may not have ever heard of it...and even it might look plain it is incredibly tasty! Anyway as the small piece of Europe is definitely worth visiting for its remarkable culture and friendly though racy people, the same is for today´s celebration - a shrove tuesday today - thus I am definitely coming today!!!

This restaurant is simply a taste of britanny in London. The crepes, sweet or salted are home made and delicious ! The staff is smily and polite, and even after 4 years, the restaurant remains clean and shiny ! Definitely a place to go !

As a born people of Brittany, It is my pleasure to come and visit regularly when I crave for a taste of my home country. Keep up the good work, and by the way your new branch in Clapham is great too. Kenavo!

These are the best crepes in London! We always enjoy going to La Petite Bretagne with our family. The kids love it and can have healthy gluten free "galettes" which they consider as a treat. The sweet crepes and waffles are a delight. I definitely recommend it!

This restaurant is my favourite so far. Not even because I am french and that I love crepes but because the food is amazing, the place is cozy and the staff is always smiling! I love this place and advice all my friends to come over. Even my the Bretons friends (who live in small Brittany) find the food amazing!!! Go for it !

I'm from Brittany and this little crêperie just reminds me of home. My favourite: the goat cheese buckwheat crêpe with chutney, the perfect combination between French and British taste.


Great crepes! Super friendly and flexible- they're happy to swap out ham for chicken, take out ingredients and such

So excited by the opening of the 2nd La Petite Bretagne in my neighborhood in Clapham. My friends and I couldn't resist the temptation of delicious crepes made with buckwheat as in Brittany. As the Hammersmith one, the Clapham branch offers a nice selection of classic salty and sweet crepes. We had a complete with cheese, ham and egg and two Tartiflettes with Reblochon cheese, potatoes, bacon strips. They were all very tasty and well seasoned. However, the sweet ones, were a bit disappointing compared to the salty ones. The Belle Helene we ordered was a bit soggy and the Breton Treat would have a been better with cooked apples than raw ones. Despite this only negative note, I would definitely go back to this friendly creperie when I miss the taste of Brittany.

Delicious French creperie in Hammersmith! Not a fussy restaurant, simple decoration good service, extensive choice of crepes!


The menu in this little place combines salty and sweet crepes. Some of their simpler crepes are not that special or unique, but the most elaborated ones are definitely worth a try. Crepe Tartiflette and Savoyarde were both excellent!. The place is really small and cozy and staff is quite nice. It can get really noisy though and our clothes were smelly once we were back out in the street.
