La Crêperie bretonne fleurie de l'épouse du marin

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The spectacularly-named ‘flower-filled Breton crêperie run by a sailor's wife’ feels like the haunt of old sea-dogs, all wood, old posters, antique objects and postcards from all over the world, giving the place an immediate charm – a little piece of the ancient Brittany region of Armorica in the 11th.
The menu offers a wide, if not exhaustive, choice of crêpes and galettes – the origin of the ingredients is carefully marked, as if to reassure those traumatised by the indigestible crêpes sold along the Rue Oberkampf. Prices range between €2.70 for a buckwheat pancake with butter to €10.40 for a version with goat’s cheese, bacon and eggs. The Bretons know what they’re doing with crêpes – this last was crispy and melting at the same time, full of soft goat’s cheese perfectly matched with salty butter. The picture is completed with a good bottle of cider at €7 and a fantastic classic sweet crêpe, the ‘Gwenn ha Du’ with home made chocolate sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream (€6.50). No doubt, this friendly corner of Brittany is a real find.
