Nantes has a number of excellent crêperies, several of which are gathered around the rue de la Juiverie/rue de la Baclerie area in the Bouffay Quarter. This area in Nantes is packed with bars and a variety of eating places, so it is not surprising that in the evening these streets are a hub of activity. Even on a Wednesday... More

Authentic black wheat crepes with ham and cheese, dessert crepes, and sparkling cider made a delicious and quick lunch at a most reasonable price. I would recommend Au Vieux Quimper for a tasty, authentic, quick, and pleasant lunch on the sidewalk cafe in the heart of Nantes.

These are quite easily the best galettes I have ever eaten. They have an extensive selection of both savoury and sweet galettes on the menu. The only advise I would give is that because the crepes are made of buckwheat they are surprisingly filling so planning on ordering both a sweet and a savory galette is a quite an ambitious... More

A great crêpe specialization menu. I had enjoyed their seafood salad and crêpe. I recommend the seating outdoors enjoying a meal while viewing people enjoy their walks along the alley where the restaurant is located.

Visited this restaurant on the strength of TA and we agree that it is one of the better creperie in Nantes. So many claim to be the real Breton Experience that it is refreshing to find one so near! (But I still think that you can only find the true exquisite galette de blé noir and crêpe in Brittany)..Situated in... More

I've eaten here multiple times and have never been disappointed. The galettes are delicious, especially the mushroom cream one! And the crepes are the best dessert I can think of - highly recommend the salted caramel one with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! We make sure to bring all our friends and family here when they visit, and they... More
