The Full Moon Creperie lies tucked away on the ground floor of the cavernous Chalet Society gallery, next to the artists' workshops, and at first glance it looks like an afterthought – a token gesture to weary culture vultures in need of sustenance and a sit-down. The menu's certainly small – just a handful of pastries and crêpes, both savoury (€4.50) and sweet (€3) – and the décor minimalist (white walls and plain wooden furniture), but this all of a piece with the bare, straightforward aesthetic of the gallery that houses it. The crêpes are as small as they are cheap, but the friendly chefs pull off the classics with simple style, whether in their lightly peppered Full Moon (ham, cheese & eggs) or their dessert pancake spread with homemade salty caramel butter. A modest range of teas, coffees and cold beverages (including inexpensive wine) completes the picture. Come on a weekend, when events and exhibitions are often held in the workshops next door. And don't delay – the building is earmarked for demolition in January 2014.
