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

The range of main courses for crepes sarasin was superb. Broad range of salads also. Desserts crepe - broad range, as was their ice creams. Frankly for the price of €10... More

A small, intimate and basic restaurant with an extensive menu of sweet and savoury crepes. We sampled two each and shared a pitcher of house red. We both chose local inspired savoury crepes to start-lots of tasty cheese, onions and potatoes. I was tempted by the Robin des Bois pancake which comprised red berries, fruit sorbet and cream. Not usually... More
