If you're feeling overloaded by one too many big meals on Caen's Rue du Vaugueux, this is the place for you. We arrived when the restaurant opened on a weekday evening in May, so seating was not a problem. When I told the owner that I didn't speak much French (in my extremely limited French vocabulary), he responded, "That's OK, I don't speak much English." At that point I knew we were going to get along famously.

Since we were feeling the need for some greens, we went for the salad galettes. These are served with the greens sprinkled over the top of the galettes with the other ingredients, e.g. Andouille sausage, baked into the cake. Nice presentation and delicious! Wish I could say that we saved room for dessert crepes, but as senior citizens our appetites aren't what they used to be.

The owner was attentive but not intrusive with his service, a perfect combination. For a relaxed, informal meal, we wouldn't hesitate to return.

We had a wonderful dinner and left quite satisfied with both quality and value. The Gallettes and Crepes were all well prepared. The location is lovely inside and the service was friendly and accommodating

We arrived just as they opened for lunch and were warmly welcomed into the restaurant to a lovely table by the window. There is a large selection of crepes or galettes. We tried the special of the day and one with potatoes, cheese, chorizo,and slow roasted tomatoes. The little boy went for salad and house made fries. The wine selection although limited was delicious and the cocktail of the day was killer. Do save room for dessert and try order one that requires flames! Great place to stop on a day of touring Normandy.

My wife and I wanted to eat real French crêpes and ended up in this great Mom & Pop crêperie. Absolutely great service and very fast too. It is still hard to decide whether the main course or the dessert was better, it was that good! Definitely recommend this place for good crêpes.

It’s such a cosy restaurant and the the gentleman that served us was a perfect host.

We wanted a dinner of galettes and crepes and we certainly came to the right place.

With such a huge variety to pick from it was a difficult choice. I had their special which was scallops and cream leaks, it was delicious!

Desserts were equally good and so was their house wine.

It’s quite small so best to reserve a table, so pleased we did!
