The tiny cafe offers very good quality galettes (buckwheat crepes) with different fillings. We had different savory ones, all had quality ingredients and tasted good. However, this is, basically, cheap street food, and the cafe is very modest, if not basic. The prices were way too high, and unjustifiably so.

Great crepes and variety on the menu. Order the duck and my wife ordered the salmon but something went wrong in the comms so she ended up with ham and egg. Highlighted this to the waiter and he immediately checked and sorted out the order and offered us a free drink. Completely unnecessary as the right crepe arrived 6-7 mins later but a great touch. Food was excellent and I ordered a whiskey after dinner but 15 mins later I was still sitting there with no drink. Manager didn't seem to pay too much attention to the tables but eventually caught our waiters eye and he finally brought the drink. When the bill came it was incorrect and had to be addressed but once the correct bill arrived (without the whiskey charge) our waiter offered refused to include it and said it was on him. Again, unnecessary as I was more than happy to pay but a great gesture. Paid the bill and made sure he got a significant tip. It's great to see a restaurant that acknowledges it made a mistake and addresses it to leave their customers with a positive impression. Go here folks. Great food and a waiter who puts his customers first!

We stumbled across this as it was down the block from our rental. You will need reservations for the restaurant, but there is a take-away next door with some seating on first come first serve. We ended up eating here several times because it was so convenient and we could pop in easily. Savory crepes hit all the taste buds in your mouth! Sensory overload. Try some of the sparkling cider and be sure to order a mix of sweet and savory. Brunch on Sunday was busy, but you can grab a seat with very little wait most of the time.

Many of the guidebooks put the Breizh Cafe as amongst, if not the, best place for crepes in Paris. And very happy to give a big thumbs up 👍 My teenage children and I started our lunch with (savoury) buckwheat galettes before moving on to sweet crepes for dessert. Served beautifully, my daughters chocolate and banana crepe was like a picture postcard. My yuzu crepe was not so good looking - but was absolutely delicious. The cafe is a bit cramped, and certainly busy, but the ingredients are top class, the craftsmanship high and flavour great. What’s not to like? Prices are reasonable too so happy to recommend.

Great Brittany style crepes here. The savory crepes are buckwheat while the sweet desert crepes are wheat. Both are great. Service was excellent. If the main restaurant is too busy, you can often go to the next door over for a more casual atmosphere and the exact same food.

We were walking around in the Marais neighborhood and the place we originally wanted to eat at was closed. This place is popular for crepes so we stopped in for lunch. We got a mix of sweet and savory (buckwheat) crepes and a bottle of cider. My caramel topping was really good and tasted like real caramel and they have a large selection of ciders. However, my husband thought his buckwheat crepe wasn’t as good as the one we’d gotten from a street stand, and cost twice as much here. Service was pretty indifferent and had to ask for bill twice.

My husband and I recently had dinner here during our week vacation in Paris, visiting from NYC. And our meal at Breizh Cafe Le Marais was definitely the low point. I had the Savoyarde and my husband had the Cancalaise, both of which were decent. The low rating is due to a very unfortunate interaction with a staff member named Clement, an interaction that rendered the meal tasteless. When we came in, Clement was the first person who approached us, and I told him (in French) that we had a reservation for 2 people. He quickly said something in French that I didn't catch, then he grabbed 2 menus, and started walking down the hallway. We used context clues and assumed he was leading us to our table. When he saw that we were following him, he quickly became agitated and started scolding us in French. My French is limited, and given that the interaction had now become charged, I started using English and told him that "I don't understand". He then switched to English as well and told us to wait at the entrance and he would get back to us. While that interaction was brief, it completely ruined our experience at Breizh Cafe. Us American tourists are wary of the stereotype of French people being rude and treating English-speakers with disdain. And I'm happy to say that our week in Paris has disabused me of that notion, as all of the French people we interacted with were very patient and welcoming of us. All except Clement at Breizh Cafe. I believe it's people like Clement and interactions like ours that create the aforementioned negative stereotypes about French people. During our meal, I pointed out to Clement that he had been rude to us earlier, and we felt he owed us an apology. Which he gave, with the excuse that he was just very busy. While I accepted his apology, I still don't believe there's ever an excuse for disrespecting customers. While our experience at Breizh Cafe was unfortunate, the bright side is it made us appreciate the great service and the basic respect we were given at all other establishments during our week in Paris. Given the vulnerability of going to a foreign country and not being completely fluent in the spoken language, being treated with respect is essential, and shouldn't be too much to ask.

Don't go there, if You're hungry.. You have to wait for a long time and get slow service.. Food is good, especially crepes, but definitely not one of the best in Paris.. and You have to be very patient to get sth to eat. Waiters don't pay attention, they don't bring what You order or sth else. Just two examples: we even had to get fork and knives ourselves after a long wait and the table next to us got their order completely wrong..Total waste of time..

If you intend to go there, I strongly recommend booking a reservation as walk-ins will be treated as second-class citizens, with poor seating and abysmal service. Clearly understaffed, Breizh suffers from the « marais syndrome » , where restaurants believe they can counter mediocre food and poor service with location and expensive « organic » and « fair trade » ingredients or beverages. which are only Breton by name. Thus, its overhyped reputation guarantees any experience there to be a huge let-down. Breizh is nothing more than an expensive subpar crêperie with painfully long waiting times in a trendy location. If you truly want to eat Breton, go to Britanny, not Breizh.

Simply wonderful! Having visited Brittany, I know the homey delight of a Breton galette, so when the Paris by Mouth newsletter recommended this cafe, I put it on my list. I was not disappointed! I had the Bretonne galette (a classic combination of flavors full of umami), a delicious dry pear cider, and a special dessert crepe with pear, chocolate, ginger, and vanilla ice cream (plus another cider!). Everything was phenomenal and as good as anything I had in Brittany. The flavors were all beautifully complementary and the portions allowed me to get both a savory and a sweet crepe, plus two drinks. I easily got a table on a Monday night in March without a reservation, and my waiter was polite, attentive, and informative to a solo diner with awkward, rusty French. (I appreciated that he *asked* if I would prefer English instead of assuming.) I also appreciate that the cafe is open early and late and all day, so if you are eating at an unconventional time, it’s there for you! And the prices are right — you can easily get out of there for 20-25€ if you only get one crepe and one drink. I also applaud the goal of the restaurant to help preserve Breton food and agriculture traditions. Even if you’ve never had a Breton crepe, you should try one at Breizh Cafe! (And bonus: buckwheat isn’t really wheat; it’s gluten free!)

Firstly you need to book or be prepared to queue . It’s a quaint spot that only does galettes or crepes . There is a variety from savory to sweet and cider or beers or wine to accompany the various kinds . Outside is nice to people watch but inside is cosy too . We had the Nordique with salmon ; goats cheese and salad ; cabbage and polony and cheese and ham galettes . We all shared the caramalised apple with cream . It’s pricey I feel as the fillings are not overly generous . But it is enjoyable .

I wouldn’t recommend anyone to visit this ’restaurant’. There is no common hygiene, we found several hairs and a living snail in our food, as the picture shows. When notifying the staff, the matter wasn’t taken seriously. The chef and the waiter simply laughed. It was a horrible experience - beneath all criticism. They could at least have offered the plate for free - I didn’t want a second one, since the first one literally made me throw up.

Stopped for lunch and sat outside. Had a lovely savoury galette with ham, egg, cheese and caramelised onions (cooked in cider), and then couldn't resist a simple salted butter and sugar crepe to follow which was just delicious. Service was generally good and friendly, it was a little slow to get the bill but it was a sunny day and I had nowhere to be, so not a problem at all! With a glass of wine and coffee the bill was €24, which I think is pretty good for lovely food in Le Marais.

The food was so good, we went there twice for brunch. Great flavors and so many delicious options. Staff was very friendly Our only wish was that service was a bit better. After the first visit we wanted to try again, but it was worse the second time around! Our food was served before we got water, juice, or coffee.

This restaurant has a large, somewhat intimidating menu with A LOT of options. We were a large table so they couldn’t bring all of our meals out at once, which I understand, but all but 2 of us were served and it took another 10-15 to get our meals. The waitress was extremely brisk and rude and even got into an argument with our french speaking guide.

Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
