With its sea-blue frontage, little bar looking out over the street and cute wooden décor, Bretons has fully embraced the owners’ Brittany roots. Of course, Brittany is also the region that brought us the crêpe, so they’ve got a lot to live up to on the culinary front. The first good sign is the alluring aroma of butter and buckwheat filtering outside from the kitchen. Inside you’ll spot a young ‘crêpier’ making buttery galettes from scratch – better and better.
The owners (and siblings) Marie and Jérémie come from Saint-Malo, and it’s pretty clear they know their stuff. The menu has around 20 galettes and crepes to choose from, savoury and sweet, and all are made with organic buckwheat. Inspired by the friendly people sitting next to us, we went for the galette with andouille and it certainly didn’t disappoint with its crispy exterior and delicious filling. The same goes for the chocolate and salted butter crepe we tried for dessert, washed down with some Sorre cider. All that’s missing is a view of the ocean, but we’re not really complaining.
