Without reservations, we found this very busy place and the popular, vocal(!) waiter squeezed us right in! Lots of active, talking people enjoying life and crepes, and a waiter who made sure it all continued! Crepes were about 15 Euros, and a huge Gourmande salad was 17. Total bill with Badoit and an onion soup was 80 Euros including tip.... More

We visited La Picoterie on a very hot day at the beginning of this month. We walked past it the first time as there was no shaded seating left at the front of the restaurant but after walking around several streets we didn't find another restaurant with such an extensive choice of crepes and galettes as was on offer here,...

We were in Chartres on a quiet Friday night - very few people in the square. We chose La Picoterie because it's highly recommended by TripAdvisor reviewers and Rick Steves. No one was on the streets because they were eating here! Our casse-croûte and buckwheat gallette were great - a nice light meal that left us with room for dessert,... More

We visited during the lights festival weekend of July 17, 2015. This place was packed but not because of fine food - mostly because everywhere was rammed due to the light festival. It was so packed in there that we had to stack 2 chairs,move our table into the gap and shinny like a thin thing past loads of other... More

My wife had the salmon and I had the ham, mushroom and ementhal gallette. Excellent. Very friendly server who also took up the challenge to entertain my French, and to assist with my education--with a smile. The dessert crepes were outstanding--crepe Helene, and crepe flambé. My birthday, and couldn't have been more ideal!

Knew we were visiting the Cathedral, so I looked up well-rated places nearby for lunch. This definitely filled the bill. NIce outdoor seating area, with a view of the Cathedral. Great crepes, but other choices as well. Ample indoor seating too. Quick and friendly service.

This is a super place to get some outstanding savour buckwheat pancakes - the list of choices is so vast I could not choose. The salads also great. The staff are friendly and the place feels good. Definitely worth a visit.
