Food and drink

Serves square-cut buckwheat pancakes with scrumptious fillings. Start with a gallette (savoury pancake), refresh your palette with a mug of cider, and then tuck into one of their sweet options – but good luck pronouncing the Breton (which is similar to Welsh) names of the pancakes! Try wrapping your tongue around Ar Poulgwenn, a pancake with caramelised banana and homemade spiced-bread ice cream.

Ambience

The narrow café is low key and informal, with white walls, wooden tables and handwritten menus on blackboards. Popular with women catching up with their girlfriends and mothers. Children are welcome.

Service

The young Breton owners are very amiable.

Location

Just of Place St-Catherine in the northwest of town; a two-minute walk from St-Catherine metro station.

Price advice

A simple sugar-and-lemon crêpe costs 3 euros, the more elaborate recipes will set you back 11 euros. Cider is 2.50 euros per mug.
