Breizh Café (Paris, France)

Of all the restaurants we visited in Paris, Breizh Cafe has the unique distinction of being the only one that was recommended by all three sources I consulted.  So even though we had no other reason to be in the Marais neighborhood in the 3rd Arrondissement, we made a special trip there in search of these famous crepes.

This little cafe is a pretty hopping place.  Luckily, we only had a short wait for a table, and right by the open glass doors too!  It was like scoring patio seats!

We both ordered something off the daily specials menu.  I chose the Rustique Galette, a buckwheat crepe with Brittany sausage, mustard, seaweed, cheese, and salad.  It was truly delightful, and what a great combination of flavors.

R. got a sweet crepe: the Dame Tatin, with caramelized apples, vanilla ice cream, and salted butter caramel. All-round delicious!

Conclusion?  Yes, these crepes were worth the hike to Breizh Cafe.  Now I can personally attest to why everyone loves this place so much!
