We were walking/exploring ST Germain when we stumbled upon this gem. We tried different crepes, salads, deserts and all I can say is that they were all delicious! Great spot for lunch. One thing to note is that it is not a big restaurant so we were packed tight in there among locals and handful of tourists. Decent service, would... More

After eating at 2 Michelin restaurants and other local spots, we decided that something on the lighter side. Nice vibe and good service, English menu. We each had a savory crepe, desert crepe, bottle of wine and 2 cappuccinos for $72 euros. Left with full stomachs and a happy feeling. We would recommend.

Went there since I stayed nearby in a hotel. Had some wine and the "Complete" galette (with egg, ham n cheese). Sat at some high chair facing the wall but the place was well lit, so could do some reading while waiting. Waiter was professional and i did enjoy the food (and the wine). The place is really mostly for... More

Walking by we thought we would peep at the menu and it said "sans gluten".....Gluten Free crepes made from buckwheat. Had "the lot" with bacon and cheese and it was heaven. They also have scallop crepes.....mind blown. Another reason to fall in love with Paris. Merci.

Saw the Trip advisor sign and decided to drop in for dessert. Yummy decision! We both chose a different crepe, and neither of us was disappointed!

Good for a quick lunch. Both salty and sweet crepes are good. Very busy with locals. Tasty, worth revisiting.

Wife and I decided to stop by after reading the reviews from trip advisor and was not disappointed. Initially the host didn't look too friendly towards us but we took it as the French way. We ordered and I believe the cook or owner came and served us. He has red hair and was very friendly and made small talk... More

During our visit to Paris, we stayed in St. Germain de Pres. Having celiac disease and knowing that a "galette" is a crepe made with buckwheat (gluten free) flour, I googled to find any galette restaurants in our area. Luckily, I found Galette Cafe! The owner was very helpful, and the menu states the savory galettes are 100% gluten free.... More

I stopped here after a long day of touring museums and I'm glad I did! The place is casual and near a university so it's busy around lunch time, but got a lot quieter after. I had the goat cheese salad crepe which was superb - delicious and healthy. I didn't have room for a dessert crepe afterwards, but they... More

The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
