Arriving at this cafe as a small group we immediately felt unwanted by the staff, even though they only had a couple of tables occupied. Staff behind the bar visibility sniggered at us as we tried to communicate in our best french.

Upon ordering we find out that there is "only sweet dishes" available (at 1pm) so we must all have sweet crepes rather than savoury lunch.

Enjoyable crepes if not slightly cold. They came out at 2 at a time which may be understandable for a small cafe but perhaps not one who describes themselves a creperie?

The service was generally rude especially when we tried to speak in french.

This creperie is tucked away in one of the small street leading down to the river from the principal street of the medieval city. Creperies are great places to eat in France especially for a fairly quick and enjoyable meal. There is the usual menu which includes savoury and sweet pancakes and ice creams. Good house wines - red and rose only. The savoury pancakes are named after historical characters; being English I couldn't face a Phillipe-Augustus but an Agnes Sorrel, tasty in more ways than one, proved excellent. It was made with chicken rather than lamb, however!. Excellent food and pleasant, efficient service. Some have found the service slow but the pancakes are made to order and, anyway, we're here to relax, not rush to get back to work.

They do a fine job here, nothing fancy but that's not why you go to a creperie. The 14EUR formule is a great deal, especially for being at tourist ground zero, in the shadow of the castle and with great views of La Maison Rouge).

Really lovely galettes! Great for family, putting up with our screaming toddler. Small and quaint, hidden in a really beautiful part of town.

We had a late lunch after visiting the fortress and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The waitress was excellent. Fun and encouraging of our poor French. Would definitely recommend it. We tried both both the galettes and the gratin and couldn't fault either the quality or price of the meal
