Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

This homely crêperie on the Rue Faidherbe is aptly named, combining as it does authentic Britanny cooking with rustic familial warmth. The buckwheat crêpes aren’t quite as high quality as one might wish, and the cider is an inferior supermarket version, but they are filling and very good by Parisian standards – from the complète – a touch bland – to the Brétonne (Guéméné sausage, egg, cheese and salad) via the slightly over-ambitious ‘Sur le port de Tevennec’, generously filled with smoked fish and marinated vegetables.

The sweet crêpes save the day, the batter both meltingly soft and caramelised at the edges, with high quality toppings. The home made salted caramel butter and the lemon version dusted with brown sugar are superb (€7). All in all, Mamie Tevennec is a success, but more so if you come at lunch for the more affordable €10 set menu, when you’re more likely to forgive the weaknesses of the mains.
