Reviews of interest

Condé Nast Traveler (2015) “Travelers en route to Brittany must depart from the Gare Montparnasse, which may explain why the Breton-inspired bistro chose to open nearby. Get the galette complète, with ham, egg, and cheese.”

David Lebovitz (2010) “A popular crêperie—and lots of fun.”

Simon Says (2009) “Rue du Montparnasse, il faut vraiment jouer des coudes pour trouver une table dans cette crêperie surbondée. C’est ouaf ouaf land. Bigrement sympa mais un peu à l’ouest tout de même, ce n’est pas plus mal au demeurant. Mais la galette complète est elle bonne? Bourrative, cataplasmique, il faut vraiment aimer, étouffe païen, facturée 9,50 euros.”

Le Figaro (2009) “Pourtant, facturée moins de 9€ le plus souvent, la complète reste une alternative savoureuse, nourrissante et économique en temps de crise…”

David Lebovitz (2006) “In an area crowded with crêperies the one that stands out is Josselin.”

  1. On my last day in Paris, my kids and I found this place – a recommendation. We didn’t feel like waiting in line, but I could taste it through the window. As a crepe-maker myself in markets and around my midwest, Wisconsin town, it was entirely fulfilling. I will taste it next time for real.

  2. yeah i read about this one on David Lebovitz post about the best crepes in paris. i am yet to try it but i will add it to the list. so far my favorite is the one on the corner near the moulin rouge at rue lepic.
