After a quite dissapointing experience at the well-known Crêperie Josselin, me and Parisbreakfasts skipped the dessert and headed for another crêperie along the street for better luck. Crêperie Bretonne caught our attention, looked charming with its white and blue Brittany colors and no lines.
Here the galettes and crêpes were made “à la commande“, the traditional way. Carol had a crêpe with caramel au beurre salé with a scoop of vanilla ice cream while I opted for their speciality “Spéciale Crêperie Bretonne” with chocolate, pear and vanilla ice cream flambée in Grand Marnier. The crêpe in itself was good..however it was soaked in Grand Marnier and it was just way too strong for me. Strangely I have not learned to avoid pastries soaked in alcohol.
The atmosphere was cozy, no stress or rush as in Crêperie Josselin. No tourists, only local people and families.

Its difficult to choose among the long list of galettes and crêpes with different toppings
Parisbreakfasts shared some of her lait Ribot (buttermilk) – delicious! Used to have one cup every morning when living in Copenhagen. Filled with loads of probiotics!
