9 Of The Best Crêperies In Paris

Indulge in an authentic French crêpe from one of the most renowned crêperies in the city.

Originating in Brittany, France during the 13th century, crêpes and galettes (savory crêpes) are traditionally made with buckwheat flour and no rising agent in the batter, making them perfectly thin and crispy. They gained popularity in the 20th century, due to how cheap they were to make, and continued on to become a beloved tenement of French cuisine and culture even today. Crêpes are typically eaten for lunch or dinner, and filled with anything from Nutella and fruit to ham and cheese – limitless delicious possibilities. Good crêpes can be found at just about every street corner in Paris, but if you stop by one of the 9 best crêperies in the city, you’ll be in for a real treat.

La Crêperie de Josselin

67 Rue du Montparnasse, 75014 Paris, France

La Crêperie de Josselin, while being a bit of a tourist hotspot, is still widely regarded as a very authentic crêperie – it’s even lauded by David Lebovitz himself. You can eat in the old-school brasserie style dining room with its wooden beam ceilings and antique decor, or grab a table on the outdoor terrace to people watch to your heart’s content. Josselin offers countless sweet and savory options, as well as traditional Breton cider to go along with whatever flavors you choose.

La Crêperie Bretonne

56 Rue du Montparnasse, 75014 Paris, France

Even located on a street full of crêperies, La Crêperie Bretonne stands a cut above the rest. This is more of a local spot, using very traditional preparation methods for their fresh, made-to-order crêpes. If the endless topping options get overwhelming, just opt for their “crêpe of the day” and you’re bound to be satisfied. Gluten-free and vegan options are also available, great for those with dietary restrictions.
