“So good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

We ate here three times in two days! Good food, efficient staff, a chatty but not-too-loud clientele, a cozy place to eat and rink.

“Delicious crepes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

We ate here twice during a two-day stay in Chartres... the savoury buckwheat crepes were delicious, as were the sweet crepes. Lovely warm atmosphere, friendly and efficient service, and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

“Not bad, not great.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2011

This was the first place we ate in Chartres during a two-day stay. Granted, we only ate here once and neither of us got a crepe or galette, so our sampling was not scientific. I had sliced andouille and cheese which had been run under the broiler on some toast. Being from Louisiana, I expected a different tasting andouille, which in La. is a smoked ham sausage. This tasted more like a cured ham. And the casing was still on the slices and well nigh impossible to cut. My wife only had a salad which isn't something for judging a place like this.

We may have been expecting too much based on the other reviews here. The restaurant was nice looking and service was good. Staff was very pleasant and there was no language barrier.

They have very good coffee.

“Outstanding !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2011

We were in Chartres for 3 days and we went to this restaurant 3 nights in a row.
It was simply that good. The food, the service, and the atmosphere.

We went for a crepe the first night and ended up having the cassoulet. It was very good.
We went back the other 2 nights for crepes.

It is highly good, therefore it is highly recommended to have a reservation.

“Great value and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2011

We have seen this creperie other than busy - not all restaurants in Chartes can boast that. Whether you like sweet or savoury there is something for you on the extensive menu. Wine is reasonably priced. Desserts are large
