Crêperie Bretonne

One of the better crêperies in Paris for savoury buckwheat galettes – try the complète with ham, cheese, and egg – and make sure to accompany it with a bottle of dry cidre from the Brittany region. It’s a fun place to enjoy a crêpe in a tiny shop with a rustic atmosphere. The best part? Your crêperie chef roams around with a large curved pipe in his mouth looking like he’d just gotten off a fishing boat. This place is no Breizh Café but a fun, solid option for the standard galette fare.

Food info: A regular crêpe (those normally served on the streets and as desserts) is made with white flour and called a crêpe. A galette, also called crêpe au blé noir, is made with buckwheat flour and has a nice crunchy bite when made properly. Some restaurants will give you an option to choose between the two but savoury fillings are almost always made with buckwheat flour.
