This is the cheapest creperie in Paris, where you can have a savoury crepe, a Nutella crepe and a can of drink for 5€. You order at the till, grab your drink, they will give you a number, you go and sit upstairs and they will call your number once the first crepe is ready. If you don't fancy sitting... More

We found this place on the way back to our place. The pricing was amazingly reasonable as compared to tourist areas. For €2.50, I got the best banana crepes during this trip. A full banana was used along with a appropriate amount of sugar sprinkled in it. The smell was heaven and the texture of crepes was crispy outside and... More

What to say of this amazing hidden jewel? Cheap and tasty sandwiches, crepes, hot-dogs... everything! Really fast service and the up-stairs small floor with its big, wooden tables is so cosy - perfect for winter evenings! Patience when its lunch/supper time, it gets a little crowded. The only negative I could say is that I'd prefer it if it were... More

My go to place for cheap street food! While they have a restaurant upstairs to eat your crepes I prefer them on the go. Their formules are incredibly cheap at 5€ for a savoury crepe of your choice, a nutella crepe and a drink! (They allow me to swap my nutella crepe for a sugar one which was a bonus)... More

We went to the Creperie Genia several times while staying in our place in Montparnasse. It is wonderful!!! Many places in town pre-make their crepes and warm them for you, not here they are fresh. The savory chicken with egg is amazing!! As are the Nutella ones. Try this place.

We popped in here for a quick snack stop. Great selection of sweet or savoury crepes along with paninis and other light bites. We decided to sit upstairs which had a very sweet traditional feel, but take away was a popular choice. Toilet up there for use as well. The crepes were delicious so we were very satisfied upon leaving.... More

This place is a little slice of heaven. When in Paris I seek this place out. The savory and sweet crepe combo for 5E is amazing. I haven't had a crepe I didn't like at Genia's. Eat in upstairs and savor a little slice of Paris. Bon appetite !

The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner.
