Well, here it comes, our Paris Breizh Cafe Review: Widely celebrated as one of the best places for dessert in Paris, Breizh Café in the Marais district heavily impressed us during our recent visit on our last trip. We accidentally stumbled across it on our way from Place des Vosges to Marche des Enfants Rouges.
You have to queue for a little while at this Breton Creperie with a Japanese touch (the owner, chef and founder, Bertrand Larcher, worked in Tokyo for some time and brought many ideas and recipes back to Paris; today, Breizh Café also has one outpost there and two in Brittany).
My wife ordered ginger and lemon crepe with ice cream, I ordered galette Cancale (named after the seaside town where one of the other cafes is located) with bits of smoked, cured herring and fake caviar in sour cream. Both dishes were very tasty. The buckwheat flour galettes have an awesome texture and taste, and can’t go wrong with these top-quality, fresh ingredients.
My wife probably would have preferred the ginger taste less intense, I thought it was just perfect. We’ll be back.
