This is a crêperie specializing in galettes de blé noir, or buckwheat crêpes. The owner is from Bretagne, and the quality of the ingredients shine though the organic galettes.
I had been wanting to also check out L’Épicerie next door. It sells all wonderful things from Bretagne. For instance, the irresistible butter by Jean-Yves Bordier, as well as yogurt, sea salt, cheese, oysters, confiture, caramels, spices, and a cave of ciders.
Since I was just one person, I had the good fortune to find a spot at the big chopping block table in l’Epicerie! You sit on wooden crates, which is pretty smart, because in such a small space, you can stash all of your stuff inside your seat. 🙂
For dessert, the most wonderful thing I’ve eaten in a long time: a crêpe made with caramel beurre sel, or salted butter caramel, topped with Chantilly aka whipped cream.
