It was my last night in Paris and I thought I’d grab a simple crêpe for dinner around the corner at the perfectly respectable Crêperie Beaubourg before returning to the apartment to pack up. It’s an easy spot for a simple dinner–and you can sit outside on the terrace overlooking Stravinsky Fountain.
I walked out the door and was overtaken by the beautiful, spring night. Crêperie Beaubourg was too close. I decided to take a nice, long stroll deep into the Marais to try Breizh Café instead.
I’d read about the place for years but had never dined there. It lived up to its reputation! I ordered a pichet of cider (which I shared with the solo diner seated next to me), a savory crêpe (or galette, as they’re called) filled with smoked salmon, then a sweet crêpe topped with buttery apple chunks, a caramel sauce, and vanilla ice cream.
I worked it all off on my walk home. (Ha.)
