Amongst the numerous crêperies in Paris few really stand out. Despite its location, in the middle of a very touristic street, Little Breizh promises something a little different with its creatively named crêpes (including Sea Chic and Say Cheese) and quality ingredients. After numerous unsuccessful attempts to make a booking via telephone (no one was answering) we decided to just turn up and given it was quite early, got a table. But the tiny room, with a Breton flag draped in front of the open plan kitchen, did fill up quickly. If none of the nine house specialities tempt you, you can also create your own crêpe from the list of ingredients – Bordier butter, Espelette pepper, Andouille sausage, artichoke hearts and many more. But our table of five (including two children) was happy with the house offerings, all heartily filled and prettily folded in order to show off the garnishes – even if not quite at the same level as those at the Breizh Café.
In the Saint-Jacques de la Coquine Saint-Jacques (€13) toasted nuts are laid on a pear fondue coated with an onion and cream sauce. The Say Cheese (€9.90), garnished with goat’s cheese, cooked apples, nuts and honey, has the perfect balance between sweet and sour and a light touch of rosemary. The Sea Chic was faultless (smoked salmon, dill cream, rose berries and lemon, €9.40) and delighted the children.
On the sweet side, it’s hard to imagine a more gourmand dessert that the Teddy Breizh (€10.90): two crêpes buried under a mountain of chocolate sauce with caramel, powdered biscuits, marshmallow bears, Chantilly and vanilla ice cream: a plate large enough to fill up two children.
