Great creperie close to cathedral and pedestrian shopping area.

Very close to cathedral, went here for dinner. Didn't open for dinner till 7pm, so we walked around and shopped the pedestrian shopping area which was wonderful. Fortuitously, the shops all close at 7pm which was when we went back to the restaurant. Huge variety of crepes - as well as other... read more

Good variety of sweet and savory crepes. Large, tasty portions. Definitely a tourist destination, but people are coming from all over the world, so what would you expect. Convenient, pleasant, got the job done.

We stopped in before seeing the the Cathedral. We were pleasantly surprised about the variety of crepes they had on their menu. My husband had the crepe canard, not only beautiful looking very tasty as well. I had the Normande Crepe which was just as good looking and came with apple sorbet. The dessert crepes were amazing as well. The... More

After visiting the cathedral at Chartres, this was a delightful lunch place, which also could have been brunch. The crepes were great - both savory and sweet were excellent. Between the three of us, we sampled 4 different kinds of crepes, including apple; egg, mushroom and cheese; egg, bacon, and cheese; and a vegetarian. Each was very different, well presented.

Really liked this place. Stopped in for lunch for some delicious savory crepes. The cider (dry) was also a great addition. They dealt with English speaking with ease. Very friendly place right next tonthe cathedral. Younwon't be dissappointed. We were frankly surprised how good it was for such a potentential tourist trap.

This small creperie is not far from the Cathedral and draws its share of tourists--like us. Sometimes the sign "English Spoken Here" means high prices and mediocre food--not here. Our galettes were delicious and you'll be spoiled for choice. I had the "Popeye" (with spinach of course) and my husband chose one with potatoes, ham and blue cheese. Yes, the... More

Cute little restaurant next to Cathedral; very touristy and a bit let down by squashing in too many tables. Nevertheless good atmosphere and service. Well work being squashed though for the excellent creative choice of crepes, beautifully served. The location means somewhat more expensive than other French creperies but worthwhile to try the bonkers recipes.

Had to try the crepes. So many to choose from! Cute restaurant, good service. Would recommend. It is close to the cathedral, so if visiting that, it is a good place for a meal.

We stopped in this place after visiting the cathedral. It is a small place, tables are close together. The staff spoke just enough English to get us through the meal. We ordered the Croute Bayonaisse. It is tomatoes, chicken and Parmesan cheese on toasted bread. It was excellent. It also came with a small bowl of salad. I would highly... More
