Brittany’s most famous culinary export, the crêpe is everywhere in Paris. You’ll see numerous stands flaunting Nutella or ham & cheese pancakes across the city for about €4; but for the real thing, best with a traditional glass of cider, head to one of our pick of Parisian crêperie restaurants. If you know of any we've missed off our list, let us know in the comments box below or tweet us.

The best of the rest

Crêperie de Pont-Aven

icon-location-pin Montparnasse
What's the deal? At the Crêperie du Pont-Aven, with its attractive red interior dating back to 1920, the Gwazenn crêpe comes with scallops, mushrooms and cream; and the Pont-Aven is filled with salmon, leeks and cream; there are even several eel variations if you're feeling adventurous.

Where? 54 rue du Montparnasse, 14th

Hungry for pancakes?

Restaurants, British

Pancake Sisters

icon-location-pin 10e arrondissement
What's the deal? Pancakes in all different colours, flavours, flour types and dietary permutations for breakfast, brunch and lunch. 

3 rue Lucien Sampaix, 10th

Restaurants, Italian

Biglove Caffè

icon-location-pin Le Marais
What's the deal? The fourth Big Mamma address stands out the most from its sisters – with a long list of gluten-free dishes (such a pizza with maize, buckwheat and rice flour) but especially, a rare coveted concept in Paris, an all-day brunch. Don't miss the gargantuan blueberry pancakes with buffalo milk ricotta came drenched in maple syrup – utter decadence. 

Where? 30 rue Debelleyme, 3rd
Time Out says
Restaurants, Tea rooms


icon-location-pin 2e arrondissement
What's the deal? Who would have imagined that two pancakes stuffed with sweet azuki bean paste would send such a ripple over the Parisian foodie scene? Try several versions of these pancake patties, all made to order, with fillings like Guérande salt or matcha (green tea powder). 

11 rue Chabanais, 2nd
