Crêpes are warm and bubbly, they’re inexpensive, and in-house studies have found them to be the perfect hangover food. That makes them just right for December, when the weather is cold and wet, when the wallets are increasingly empty, and when there are wine tastings almost every single day. But where to go for the best galettes?
Five Great for Crêpes
- Breizh Café – Signature ingredients (Bordier) and inventive twists (yuzu butter, ginger caramel) make Breizh Café our overwhelming favorite. The outstanding selection of artisanal ciders doesn’t hurt.
- Crêperie Josselin - The city’s most buttery, authentic crêpes served in a dining room full of dark wood and Breton lace.
- Le Pot O’Lait - This tidy crêpe spot near rue Mouffetard is short on the usual Breton bric-a-brac, and long on quality.
- West Country Girl – The coolest crowd, certainly, but delicious galettes, too.
- Ty Breiz - This Montparnasse crêperie ranked #2 in Figaroscope’s survey of the best galettes complètes in Paris.
About our process: For each topic, we begin with a little research to identify options. We then ask our readers, by posting a question in the forum, to offer additional suggestions. From that discussion, we compile a list of candidates and ask our panel of contributing advisors to rank their top choices and identify any rejects. Their rankings are weighted, analyzed, and compiled into a new Five Great post every week. Runners up are places who received more positive votes than negative comments. Rejects are places that received only negative comments with no positive votes.
