You cannot visit France without having a crepe or two. I did a little research before our trip to Paris and read about BREIZH Cafe in Le Marais who claim to do the the best crepes in the city. We headed along for lunch one day and found a little modern cafe packed full of people but with just enough space left for the two of us.
The menu is split into savoury galettes (traditional buckwheat pancakes) and sweet crepes with a typical chalkboard menu du jour.
We ordered an obligatory karafe of cider which was sweet and to be perfectly honest not to my liking but that's because I favour dry west country scrumpy.
I ordered a cheese, onion, chorizo and soft egg cooked in cider galette from the special menu which was delicious. I haven't had a buckwheat pancake before, they're a lot woodier in flavour but this really compliments the savoury ingredients.
Steve went for the tripe sausage and salad galette from the main menu, a little adventurous I'd say but the tripe was surprisingly nice and not as powerful tasting as I expected. I definitely preferred my pancake though!
Of course we had to have a sweet crepe to finish so we shared a chocolate pancake, not that horrible Nutella rubbish but proper melted rich chocolate, divine!
I enjoyed out lunch at BREIZH Cafe, I wouldn't say they were the best pancakes I've ever tasted but they were lovely and if I was in the area again and in need of a quick bite I'd be sure to pop in.
