Long story short: my buddy Vanessa told me about this place a while back, and everytime we would pass it walking up and down the Marais, we’d say we would eat there. So when our special friend Moe was in own in the spring, we finally gave it a whirl. These photos are from May, but they still have the same value and delicious representation of this little trésor breton.

If you haven’t tried a true Gallette Bretone (or one with a pinch of modern spunk)……NOW IS YOUR CHANCE. Well, I mean, there are gobs and gobs of Crêperies all over Paris (especially in the Montparnasse area FYI) so give one a whirl. The “classic” is with Ham, Egg & Cheese.

And don’t forget to top it off with some cider.

For a little taste of Bretagne, stop by this little resto on rue Raymond Losserand for a buckwheat crepe. Amongst many lunch formulas, the menu even has a one of kind-not-so-french-item: make your own galette! You choose your toppings and such and they make your customized galette. Although classics are always delicious, with a bolée of cider, of course. Our menu for the luncheon consisted of  : *Galette Nordique: saumon, pomme de terre, crème fraîche, citron (salmon, potatoes, sour cream, and lemon)… it’s heaven. And secondly for the monsieur, *Galette classique: oeuf, jambon, gruyère (egg, ham, & cheese)….very classic and always delicious. Followed by…dessert! Our choices were a *Sugar & Butter Crêpe, and a *Salted Butter and Caramel Crêpe (a classic of Bretagne). Then of course you will be full, but you will not regret it because nothing is better than a buckwheat crêpe and a glass of chilled cider.
