A very large selection of crepes, both for meals and as dessert. I had a buckwheat crepe with cheese, ham and an egg on it. Absolutely delicious and quite filling. I was glad I had not ordered any dessert. Only one block from the cathedral so great for a before or after lunch.

The savoury crepes are tasty; the coffee is very good, and the service is friendly and highly competent. With our meal we enjoyed a bottle of sparkling cider that was really fine. Highly recommended!

I am here to visit the cathedral - I had a crepe (gallette) called the Baltique - It was excellent. It is a tourist's place, but it is okay!!

We stopped there fairly late after having been rejected from other places! The crèpes were good, warm and very quickly served. The staff was very friendly and efficient

we love France and went to visit the Cathedral in Chartres and of course needed to eat while there. We both love crepes and we were not disappointed with what was on offer and very reasonable too

A very friendly little place that offers great crepes. Have a crepe with apples and flambéed with Calvados and enjoy a fun conversation with Thierry the waiter. An ideal place for a leisurely lunch or an afternoon snack. Try their cider!

The menu has a variety of choices of crepes, from salty to sweet ones. It's not an easy task to pick one. The prices are cheap, but worth the money, in my opinion. The location is really good if you visit the cathedral (and you will if you visit Chartes).

Famous for crepes and not disappointed. Also tried its soup. Pretty good too. A nice combination with a day trip to Chartres.

Excellent address, a stone-throw away from the Cathedral. The galettes (savory dishes) are plenty big enough for a meal, with so many options everybody will find something to their taste, from the classics (ham, cheese, mushrooms) to elaborate concoctions featuring foie-gras, andouillette, blue cheese, raclette, smoked duck filet, smoked salmon, etc. There are also salads and sandwiches, but why would...
