Originally from Brittany, I can say this is a good crepe restaurant. Nicely presented, well prepared, stuffed enough. The staff is friendly and the decor is appealing

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 delighted to see that it... 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

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
