Breizh Café in Paris is the crêperie at its best. The galettes (name given to savory crêpes made out of buckwheat flour) are an absolute delight. The menu offers an interesting variation of toppings, going from the classic galette complète (ham, egg and cheese) to less traditional ones such as the “fourme d’ambert” served with blue cheese, grapes and walnuts. All the ingredients are top of the line: from free-range to organic goods, you can be sure that you will be served the best. There’s a long list of ciders to choose from, all carefully picked, as well as Breton beers and Breton coca-cola (Breizh cola!)
Aside from the very lovely people working there and the perfect crêpes, there’s one more thing that I find particularly satisfying: Breizh Café’s opening hours - it’s open non-stop from lunch to dinner Wednesday through Sunday.
If you choose to eat at the regular French hours (12pm-2pm and 8pm-10.30pm) I would highly recommend you make a reservation. Otherwise you should be fine just walking in. And how about paying Breizh Café a visit around 4pm for a sweet crêpe such as the applesauce-salty caramel-vanilla ice-cream one, for those too are highly worth the detour.
Paris’ Breizh Café is in the Marais, catercorner from the Musée Picasso gardens.
