Breizh Café

Breizh Cafe in Paris | Paris By Mouth

Our favorite crêpe in the city. Savory buckwheat galettes filled with organic ingredients and dessert crêpes with Japanese touches (yuzu, ginger) put Breizh Café head and shoulders above the rest. Check the chalkboard for more exotic, seasonal specials – a recent favorite was a seared sea scallop and samphire galette filled with leek & tarragon cream. You can begin your meal with briny oysters, finish with a salted butter caramel crêpe, sip artisanal hard ciders throughout the meal, and still escape for less 20 per person. All this makes Breizh a popular and affordable luxury, one that you need to reserve in advance.

Reviews of interest

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…”
