Shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras, Pancake day… Whatever you call it, the 5th March provides a great excuse to feast on delicious Parisian crêpes. In preparation for the big day, here are some of the best places to find delicious crepes in Paris:
1. Breizh Café
The top of many ‘best crepierie’ lists, Breizh café is arguably the best crepe restaurant in Paris. The sophisticated creperie combines traditional Breton ingredients with inspiration from Japan, to create delicious and incredibly original crepes and buckwheat galettes. The chefs take their work extremely seriously, and each plate is hand crafted to the highest standard. In true Breton style, they also pride themselves on their selection of ciders.

2. La Crêperie des Canettes
In the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, lies this traditional creperie. While all of their flavours are delicious, we have to recommend their buckwheat goats cheese and honey galettes, and the ‘Belle Ile’, a delicious combination of vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce and toasted almonds, for dessert.

3. Princess Crepe
For something a bit different, head to the Princess Crepe for a Japanese take on the traditional Breton delicacy. Think something between a crepe and an ice cream Sunday, piled high with toppings. The bright pink interior of this place makes it pretty hard to miss, and it’s well worth a trip to get yourself an equally colourful sweet or savory treat to eat.

4. Chez Alain Miam Miam
If you’re looking for a tasty lunch stop, head to Chez Alain Miam Miam in the Enfants Rouges food market. Take away a galette packed with fillings, or have a seat and enjoy a glass of wine with a chocolate-y nutella crepe. At peak lunch time rush hour there can be quite a queue (a testament to their delicious food) so try going a bit earlier or later in the day.

5. The Pancake Sisters
You might have guessed from the name, but if you’re looking for an American pancake rather than a Breton crepe then you should head to the Pancake Sisters. This place offers inovative meals such as sandwiches made with pancakes instead of bread, and an all-week brunch menu. They also make an excellent bacon, maple syrup and butter pancake stack – not very French, but still very delicious.

You can choose a crepe from their menu, or create your own from their selection of toppings including vegan ham, vegan cheese, and veggies. No one needs to feel left out on pancake day!
