Breizh Café

Breizh Café is by far our favorite crêperie in Paris Traditionalists like me, who always order a complète (ham, cheese, egg), appreciate the higher quality organic ingredients and the crispy lacy edges of their buckwheat galettes. More adventurous hunters can look to the daily and seasonal specials to top their galettes with upgrades like sea scallops and smoked duck breast. Dessert crêpes offer a few Japanese touches like ginger and yuzu alongside classic constructions with apples and ice cream. You can begin with ultra-fresh oysters or langoustines, sip artisanal ciders throughout the meal, and still escape for less than 20 per person. There are now three locations in Paris, which takes some heat off the original Marais location, but you should still book in advance. They’ve added online reservations to make that easy, and are now open every day at each location.

What people are saying

Hipsters in Paris (2015) “The focus here is on really good produce, rather than trying to fancify Brittany’s humble historical dish. In an act of restraint, the prices are completely reasonable, and you can even book for lunch and dinner for certain days.”

A Good Forking (2013) “If you are going to indulge in the cliché (and you should), make sure you do it right. And there truly is nothing more right than the perfectly nutty, crisp cornered salted caramel butter crêpe from Breizh Café… The slogan of Breizh Café, ’La crêpe autrement‘ rings true – it is indeed the crêpe done differently. And by different, I mean better.”

Not Drinking Poison in Paris (2011) “It’s a well-run operation with fresh ingredients, good service, and an unbeatable list of ciders. Nothing wrong with the natural-by-numbers wine list, either.”

Dorie Greenspan (2008) “… made with organic ingredients and the fillings can be plain or fancy, sweet or savory.  There’s also a terrific (and terrifcally long) cider list.”

David Lebovitz (2008) “Because owner Bertrand Larcher is a true Breton, the Breizh Café focuses on the quality of the products and lets them shine…”

John Talbott (2007) “… does to crepes what Wolfgang Puck did with pizza; it turns them on their head…”

    We really enjoyed Breizh, which is both serious and playful about their food. Coming in on a hot day, after lots of walking, it was almost like a breath of the countryside to get a pitcher of cold cider and authentic crepes. Wish I had had room for dessert!

    If you want to pay 20 euros for a freaking crepe, this is the place to do it. That said I’m not sure the ROI is worth it
