“Great Food, Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

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 of chicken curry, I'll forgive the mistake as being lost is translation, however my dessert pancake of Nougat was just about the best pud I've ever had, and I like my puddings!

All the family enjoyed it, and would pretty much recommend this to anyone, top place for a meal or a snack

“Great crepes and service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

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 to arrive around 7-7:30PM but there is plenty of room inside.

“Superbe creative range of crepes, salades and desserts - good price - good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Have lived in Tours for 16 years and saw this on TripAdvisor. Ideal for en famille, or en couple.
Lunchtime was busy but we were welcomed in. Excellent service. 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 - €15 a head for a fun, interesting two course meal it is unbeatable. We will be back many times again. The girls demand it! Recommended for good informal lunches and evenings with the family and/or friends.

“Great, if you like crepes.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

We dined here on our last night in Tours because my partner wanted to try a real French crepe. They have a huge menu; every kind of crepe you can imagine. Their house wines were very good and inexpensive. We ordered several different of crepes and a dinner salad. My partner loved his crepes. The salad I ordered was large and fantastic; one of the best ones I have ever had (it had pork and potatoes in it). I tried some of the crepes and decided that I am not a crepe person, That said, the service was good for France and it was very busy and had a nice, local pub ambiance. Highly recommended if you like crepes and if not, please try one of their salads.
