The best crêperies in Paris are no longer satisfied with just serving up a flat pancake sprinkled with sugar. Nowadays, they delight in dressing up their delicious masterpieces in rose petal whipped cream or rolling them out into strange contemporary works of art almost too good to eat.

Did you know – Culture Trip now does bookable, small-group trips? Pick from authentic, immersive Epic Trips, compact and action-packed Mini Trips and sparkling, expansive Sailing Trips.

Try rose petal whipped cream at Creperie Gigi

Creperie Gigi

The idea behind this quirky crêpe is to reimagine classic and ultimately boring crepe recipes such as “ham, cheese and egg” or “sugar and butter” and turn it into something elaborate, striking, and gourmet (Shiitake, truffled ham, or even rose petal whipped cream). It’s also to offer a selection of mini crêpes as appetisers (Burrata-stuffed crêpe with caramelised onions or goat cheese, caramelised apple, spinach, and honey). Every recipe can be served as a crunchy salad in a buckwheat bowl that you can eat with vegetables, and is Insta-perfect in presentation as well. The chef loves working with seasonal products that are original and authentic, and her dedication to quality shines through in her selection of suppliers (Maison Bordier for butter, Marcel Petit for the comté, organic flour from Moulin Bourgeois, and more).

For authentic artisan crepes, go to Crêperie Port Manech

Crêperie Port Manech

This place never strays far from its trusty artisan suppliers of cider, sausage, flour, and beer. At Crêperie Port Manech, everything on the menu is home-made, and every vegetable you’ll try is handpicked and fresh, and, of course, the eggs are organic. A particular gem from their galette selection is the “rochefortaise” with organic egg, Emmental cheese, ham, onion, and mushroom topped with cream and a sprinkle of parsley and tomatoes. They also experiment with visual displays and forms, not satisfied in just serving up a flat pancake, but rolling them out into strange contemporary works of art almost too good to eat.

Enjoy the best of Breton cuisine at Lulu La Nantaise – Crêperie

At Lulu La Nantaise – Crêperie, the deliciously handcrafted pancakes are made with buckwheat, bio wheat, or a special Breton flour unique to the region, all hailing from the mill of Charbonnière. They only work with fresh and seasonal products, meaning that the menu changes three times a year. The crêperie also offers artisanal farm ciders, winegrowers’ wines, organic fruit juices, and a fine selection of spirits – all of which come from independent distilleries. The savoury galettes are priced from seven to 12 euros, while pancakes vary from a modest 4.5 to eight euros.

Enjoy a caramelised pancake or waffle at Comptoir Belge

Comptoir Belge

Le Comptoir Belge is passionately dedicated to reinventing Belgium’s classic cuisine with a home-made touch. Even the whipped cream is home-made, in the ultimate effort towards authenticity. Aside from crêpes, they specialise in the Liège waffle, which is well worth a try. The traditional recipe is enhanced with exceptional ingredients such as organic eggs, Belgian butter, and premium pearl sugar. Their resident master waffle makers prepare these pastries upon order throughout the day and so there’s always a hot waffle fresh from the griddle. You can then savour their moist brioche treat, which is deliciously caramelised on all sides.

Try a Japanese fusion at Crêperie Paris Breizh

Crêperie Paris Breizh

The ingredients are far from ordinary at Crêperie Paris Breizh, merging local tastes of Brittany with Japanese tradition to yield surprising but incredible results. And surprisingly, these two food cultures go hand in hand. You will never have the same experience twice, and the chefs work like artists, describing the crepes as having “décors” and flaunting their “own personality”. These chefs leave nothing to chance, except the uniqueness of the encounter between the customer and the food. It’s a truly unique experience.

Crêperie Pen Ty

Place de Clichy is one of the liveliest places in Paris, as its square is lined with all kinds of shops, restaurants, theatres, cinemas, and crêperies. But Pen Ty creperie has ranked as the best in the area for over 30 years, offering pancakes and cakes made by a real Breton. You’ll discover a very traditional menu (andouille Guéméné, salted butter caramel, kouign amann, etc.) and a wide selection of ciders in a cosy, intimate setting. This little crêperie does get booked up quickly, so it is best to reserve in advance, especially during the weekend.

Take away a treat from MARDI Crepe Club

MARDI is a speedy, casual place for crêpes that will tantalise your taste buds as you rush from one destination to another. Opened in Paris in 2016, MARDI produces savoury and sweet crépes to eat in a modern and comfortable 40-person capacity restaurant, but more often than not it’s a favourite for takeaway. You simply drop by and compose your own crépes by choosing from no less than 50 high-quality toppings.



Krügen offers an experience of Breton’s food culture for buckwheat crêpes in a hippie surf setting, bringing you what is the best of Bigouden’s country. It’s one of the most well-loved, and popular creperies in the whole of Paris. The modest price range starts from 6.5€ and goes up to 12.5€, depending on whether you fancy buckwheat, sweet, or savoury. There’s a range of tasty toppings you can have sprinkled on, too.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
