It's small and tight inside Breizh Cafe, and it's a hit in Paris' Le Marais district. Make reservations (highly suggested) to enjoy their well known galette (buckwheat crepes) if you don't want to be faced with having to wait for a table. Sunday brunches in trendy Le Marais are popular among Parisians and one will not go wrong with Breizh Cafe.
This charming cafe boasts an impressive list of ciders and in fact an entire page of the menu is dedicated to this drink. Another well-loved beverage is the lait ribot (Breton buttermilk). We start off with both- a carafe of the house cider and a bowl of fresh warm buttermilk.
Each prepared individually and made from buckwheat flour, the edges of the crepe are folded over to make a square shape. The edges are crisp and not flimsy; the rest of the crepe is soft. The options for galettes with savory fillings and toppings are wide, and so are the sweet options. We decide on the artichoke compléte galette with artichoke bottoms, raw milk Gruyére cheese, ham, and a sunny-side up egg, and the Frougeraise galette with andouille and a healthy amount of salad on top. Creperies are all over Paris and Breizh Cafe is one of the city favorites.
