On rue du Montparnasse, there has to be a dozen crêperies, and I tried four crêperies in Paris. I don't know how they can all survive. La Crêperie de Josselin is often rated top 10 best in Paris. I would agree with the assessment. I...had the goat cheese, tomato and two massive slices of ham backed into the top of the rectangular crêpe. Massive, filling and delicious. The draft dry cider was also quite good. Not any more pricey than other crêperies. Highly recommended.More

We took a macaron baking class and the chef who taught us told us about this local hidden gem. We are so glad she did. It was a bit of a trek for us to get to it from where we were staying but it...was so worth it. When we got there we noticed that there were many locals which we thought was a good sign. We sat on the patio and ordered the special which was a savory crepe with ham, egg, and cheese, plus a sweet crepe and cider for 14 euros. For the sweet crepe, I had the toffee and my son had the chestnut cream, both were delicious. Both the savory and sweet crepes paired well with the cider. This was honestly the best meal we had during our whole time in Paris. I will now likely dream about these crepes they were so good. : )More

I've been here a few years ago, alone. And some weeks ago I came back with my family. Their crepes are tasty, abundantly stuffed, perfectly cooked, delicious! Waiters are very kind, they speak a lot of languages, pay attention to the guests' needs (in our...case we were short of time and they have been very fast). The price is absolutely adequate. They do not accept reservations. Don't miss these crepes!!!More

Among the best crepes I’ve tried in my life. We had both a sweet and savoury one and they were both amazing. Definitely worth trying.

Went with my best friend and we were both in hangover. I've been in hangover many times and I've tried many foods and ways to recover from it, but up until now there is nothing like these galettes. My best friend got the one with...mashed eggplant, bacon and egg, and me the one with fig jam, bacon and asked to add the egg. Absolutely no words for how tasty it was!More

Time after time we come to Paris, Josselin is a must visit. This was our third time in the last 7 years and nothing has changed. The buckwheat savory crepes are still to dream about and causes one to not eat any other crepe anywhere...ever. The fillings always taste fresh and a good blend. The sweet pastries are just the right amount of filling to crepe. The servers are very pleasant. It was like returning to a neighborhood cafe. Don't bother stopping at any of the other 30 creperies in the neighborhood!More

We had a lovely experience here. Luckily we were seated straight away, but there were queues as we left. My partner had a savoury crepe and I had a sweet one. The food was lovely, nice wine, and the decor was so warming.

This place is a winner! Their crepes are by far the best ones on that street. 5 stars for their savory ones, 5 1/2 for the desert, ah! I had their bacon, egg and cheese, absolutely awesome! Nice, authentic restaurant, friendly staff, great choice of...crepes. Make sure you bring cash with you and go early for dinner, otherwise the wait maybe long. The only one I go to since I discovered them!More

Oh man. I stopped into this place one evening while in Montparnasse. GREAT place! After going here, I stopped at several creperies in/around Paris, but none of them were as exciting at Josselin. The Cider was amazing, as well. As an aside - safe for...gluten free peeps!More

It's a cramped squeeze depending on where you sit. We were at a long row of tables that you practically had to crawl over to get to one side! The place is buzzing and popular which makes it fun. The service was friendly and always...available. We had a few crepes, salad, and hard cider. The food was all very good. Despite looking enormous it was actually not overly heavy. Just right for a late lunch after a couple hours of walking through the neighborhoods.More

Located on a street that is full of creperie, this place stands out by just how busy it is. It's busy for a reason, it's simply the best. Great value and reasonably priced meal. Savoury galettes are served quickly and are very tasty. If you...are on a budget and want something quick, filling and stereotypically French you should head here. Don't be fooled into thinking that the crepes here have any relation to the product from the myriad of street stalls. These crepes and gallettes are a different breed and is exactly why tourists and locals alike are packing this place out of an eveningMore

I believe it is correct. Most small Paris restaurants are closed the 2 first weeks​ of August for the congés annuels... you ll also find many smaller shops closed. Enjoy your trip though.

Dear Josselin, My name is Johanna, I am 20 years old and this July I will be visiting Paris for the first time. I love food and the thing I look forward to the most is trying typical French dishes. However, there are some things I avoid eating as it makes me feel bad and I am therefor a bit worried. I would love to have both a savoury galette and a dessert galette, but I am very sugar sensitive (hence me writing "galette" for dessert too, as a crepe from what I understand contains sugar). Many dessert crepes are served with ice cream, chocolate or similar and I can not eat any of that :( What I would love to though, is a crepe with berries and nuts, perhaps a nut butter like peanut butter (though I am not sure that is common in France and it is not necessary) and maybe some plain yogurt (preferably made of sheep or goat as I avoid cow, but that is not necessary either). Perhaps summer berries, toasted almonds, goat yogurt and cardamom? Or something completely different - whatever you can do! Please, help me! Is there any chance you can help med with this? It would mean so incredibly much! I could also do some fruit (do as I am sugar sensitive I have to take it easy with fruit), like apple, toasted walnuts and cinnamon. I am up for anything as long as I can eat it. If you do not wish to help me, do you know a fellow Creperie that could? Thanks in advance and have a lovely day! Best wishes, Johanna (Stockholm) P.S. Is there anywhere I can view your menu in English?
