I wasn't so sure about this place because it was almost empty at 8 pm (a time when I was starving) and I didn't read anything about it on TA or LP but the husband remembered that the owner was interviewed about galette-making on LP. And am I glad we went with his choice.

The galettes we had were the best we had in Bretagne (while not a long time, we did spend 4 - 5 days therein) - or anywhere else for that matter really. He had the blood sausage galette, while I had the egg-spinach-poitrine one, and we liked both so much we had to order another one to share. (And the portion sizes are GENEROUS so we were reaaally pushing it.) The Val de Rance cider was brilliant too, according to the hub - I didn't try it myself as I'm expecting. What else can I say about this place - the lady owner was lovely, the decor is charming and service is quick... nothing bad at all to say about this place.

Definitely go. There's parking nearby too. (And by the way, the eatery did fill up closer to 9 pm.)

My husband and I happened across this quaint little creperie during a mild June Sunday's trip to Rennes.

We were tired and hungry, but didn't expect to have such overwhelmingly good food at this unassuming little place.

The gallettes using black, organic wheat were absollutely delicious. As were the fillings -

I had an 'Epinard', which consisted of spinach, creme fraiche, mushrooms, garlic and cheese with some slices of 'Poitrine' and a soft fried egg on top.
My husband had a 'Forestiere' which had allsorts in it, including andouille, potatoes etc.

The salad was the freshest, most delicious lettuce I've ever tasted. Just lettuce with a simple mustard vinaigrette.

All washed down with a pitcher of cidre bouche

TO DIE FOR!

Freezing in Rennes, but nothing but warmth at La Ville d'Ys. A tiny little place, 6 tables and Madame's kitchen (there are a few more tables upstairs via a 15th century staircase). I had a ble noir tartiflette galette, and the delice dessert galette; I have never had a better "Breton" meal. To be honest, I haven't had many meals this good anywhere in France. Madame was charming, and I plan to be there again in April. By the way, excellent value for money..
