Crêperie de Josselin
Even on an average weekday, you will struggle to land a table at the Crêperie de Josselin. With its welcoming atmosphere and its hearty food, this crêperie offers some of the true classics of the French tradition. Some favourites include ‘le couple’, two layers of galette with filling in-between and ‘la maraîchère’, comprised of spinach, bacon and egg.

West Country Girl
Tucked away in a sleepy side street near Oberkampf, this crêperie is a world like no other. The menu is simple, mixing together classics and house specialities, cooked and prepared to perfection with carefully sourced ingredients from various regions of France. At West Country Girl they do not serve galettes, but instead ‘crêpes salées’, a well-loved tradition of Cornwall. For dessert, salted butter caramel is highly recommended.
