Reviews of interest

David Lebovitz (2014) “Crêperies are a dime a dozen in Paris, but this one stands out. The owners—a young French couple—put so much care into every dish. The ingredients are impeccably sourced; the dark, musky buckwheat honey comes from Brittany, as do the sparkling-fresh oysters, which arrive daily.”

Patricia Wells (2011) “Galettes can be leaden or ethereal, and here in this small, 50’s-style diner they are truly outstanding — parchment-paper thin and golden. (The selection is huge, including mimolette and spinach; Camembert and bacon; goat cheese and spinach; bacon and mushrooms.)”

David Lebovitz (2009) “…an address I’m happy to travel to…”

Thierry Richard (2009) “…une crêperie reliftée nouvelle vague…et une clientèle gentiment branchée et cosmopolite…”

Meg Zimbeck (2009) “…carefully made crêpes with a side order of indie cool…”

  1. We had dinner there last night with Seb. We had oysters to start, along with a planche of saucissons. Hubby got adventurous with a crepe au boudin noir and loved it. My champignons and chevres was equally successful and Seb’s ham and cheese didn’t stand a chance. The salted butter caramel dessert crepes lived up to their reputation. Cider and beer and dinner was 58 euros for 3. Staff was very friendly with Seb and let him take pictures of the kitchen. We ate early but the place was filling up as we left a little past 8:30pm. Thanks for a great suggestion.

  2. Loved this place! Quiet and off the beaten track. The staff is friendly, the cidre is dry and the crepes are amazing. Light on the wallet. And they have homemade caramel au beurre salé. What more could you want?
