French galettes, French atmosphere, what more could you want?!

Here"s the place you are searching for! A wonderful location right by Place Plumereau in Tours. It's a small cosy place where we were welcomed by a friendly serveuse. The menu has a lot of variety. We each had a savory crepe, and they were both excellent! I had the crepe with asperagus, and was... read more

I stopped here for a lunch crepe, which was served quickly, with lovely fresh ingredients and a smile. It is important to be early at lunchtime as things can become crowded, especially as tables are close together. But, overall, a great place to eat, with excellent cider and very good prices.

Solid creperie in the center of old Tours with great service, excellent food and also cider from Bretagne. I have visited for both dinner and lunch and both times the food was good, the service was prompt, and the ambience was lively. This is the go to spot for locals for lunch so it can be a bit busy but... More

Great little creperie just off Place Plumereau which is the heart of the old town of Tours. Excellent crepes, varied menu, warm welcome and great prices : 2 pancakes, 1 pichet of cider, 1 pichet of wine and 2 espresso coffee for €27. Brilliant.

Creperies can't go very wrong with what they offer, and so often I'm unimpressed by their fayre. But La Bigouden is different. There's a wonderful choice of interesting and unusual fillings, you can taste the quality of the ingredients they use. Super service with really friendly owners, tasty cider to accompany the dishes and there's so much choice there's something... More

Went on the recommendations from here and was not disappointed, the location is perfect for people watching and a view of the old timber houses, the service was young, lively and a little flirty, which made a change from some of the surliness we have got elsewhere Pancakes were great except mine, ordered Indianne, got Diane, so chicken liver instead...

Tried this small creperie located in the old part of Tours and we really liked it. Great choice of buckwheat crepes (meal crepes) and white flour (dessert crepes). Their cider in pichet is very good. Everything we ordered was very good too and well presented. The staff is very friendly and professional. If you want to sit outside, you need... More
