The crepes are wonderful and the ambiance is that of old Quimper with exposed stone walls and rustic tables. The crepes are terrific in 3 different flours with lots of different fillings...., and they are amazingly crispy. The #1 place for crepes in Quimper and that says it all.!

Spent a pleasant couple of days wandering round this pretty town on our tour of the Brittany coast. Cool river area along the quays with the old town and cathedral easily accessible from there. Plenty of places to eat and drink as well as interesting sights to see. Would recommend a visit.

A very small restaurant, full of charm. The welcome was warm and friendly. The crepes were the best we have had in Britanny, with so many options it was hard to choose. The wine list is basically red, white or rosé, but there are lots of options when it comes to the local cider, which is served in traditional bowls... More

Great ambiance and especially great crepes! Cider helping, we had to order an extra dessert one with salty butter caramel and vanilla ice cream! Outstanding... A must.

In a land where it is hard to walk even a few yards without finding a creperie this is one of the best. Good atmosphere, good service and good crepes

I have been to a lot of creperies in my life; lived in Brittant for over 20 years. So I am probably more demanding than most. This creperie has a very original batter mix and a goof, traditional menu. They even do andouille (Guéméné!) with tomatoes, a favourite of mine. The only thing missing is that they're not organic.

Just a few steps from the Cathedral - old character full building, but tiny inside so early arrival or booking recommended. The galettes, made with a good choice of different fillings, had a very good flavour and were cooked to perfection with a little bit of crunch to the side. Served simply with a fresh green salad and washed down... More

There are plenty of creperies in Quimper but this is my favourite, with a distinctive batter mix and quality filling ingredients. Very nice staff and efficient service, but it can be cramped when very busy. The building itself provides an atmospheric setting.
