We tried both the sweet & savoury crepes here. I had a savoury (cheese & mushroom) & was trying to remember what it tasted like. Then my son had a bite & he knew - a toasted cheese sandwich!
The sweet crepes were more special - delicious home-made chocolate sauce; yummy salted caramel & an unusual jam with lavender.
Location in the Medieval City is lovely (although the restaurant itself is not v attractive).
All in all worth a visit.

Enjoyable evening. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Montlucon, if you like crepes - that really is the only thing they serve. Delicious crepes and friendly service but overpriced drinks (€5.50 for small bottle beer). Very popular - thankfully we had booked based on trip advisor reviews as they turned people away all evening.

Hello, thank you for your contribution to our TripAdvisor creperie that indeed the summer and on weekends it is advisable to book. I am pleased that our reception and map-based pancakes filled your wish you've enjoyed it. 2 fish, 1 crustacean five meats, five vegetables, cheeses 8, plus the egg for cakes and butter sugar, 7 varieties of jams, over 10 ice sweet and salty 2 ice, whipped cream, hazelnuts, almonds, coconut. .. allow a variety and combinations for everyone and also appeals to vegetarians. I remember you two compatriots who were excited and eat a ham on two occasions strawberry jam, not current restaurant and France. Anything is possible as everything is ready to plate, on demand.
Maybe we have not been able to explain to you in your language that our fresh produce is also top notch notament in our drinks from Britain, all Handcrafted with unfortunately an additional overhead supply that we need to share some with you. Beer Sainte-Colombe is one of the best craft beers and small production Brittany owners demanding Brewers can destroy production if it does not satisfy them or offsets which even earned us some shortages that please excuse. All my respects.

We chose this based on trip advisor reviews but I think it is generally overrated. Although the food was very good the service was frantic and we felt either ignored or hassled to order which meant we couldn't order everything we wanted because he had rushed off. My husband speaks excellent French so it wasn't a lack of communication. Lots of minor little niggles which left an overall feeling of being underwhelmed. Oh and beware it doesn't take credit cards.

Bonjour Madame, je prends enfin le temps de répondre à votre commentaire et note et vous en remercie. Je me souviens bien de votre demande de tomates fraîches un de ces soirs d'été. Nous ne sommes pas maitres du nombre de clients ni de parfois frénésie inexplicable pour une de nos garnitures fraîches sur un ou deux services d'une même journée. Nous disposons de plus de 80 crêpes et galettes, si vous n'arrivez pas à trouver votre bonheur nous sommes au regret de vous dire que nous ne ferons malgré tout pas de produits congelés ou en surnombre pour les jeter. La gestion des "pertes" est un poste clé de la rentabilité, voir survie d'un petit établissement comme le notre, ainsi que pour moi gage de produits de Qualité. Je suis satisfaite que la nourriture vous ai satisfaite, c'est un aspect principal. Quant au serveur seul assisté de mon mari handicapé, je vous prie de bien vouloir ne pas confondre entre le mot serveur et serviteur comme certains clients croient devoir exiger chez nous. Je sais tout ce qu'ils mettent de tout en oeuvre et de leur meilleur pour votre satisfaction et arranger les uns les autres quelque soit leur nombre, age, attentes et demandes, fidèles clients ou de passage ! En plus que nous n'avons toujours que 2 bras et 2 jambes ;-)

L'autel de la Crèpe was a wonderful discovery this evening, following the recommendation of a friendly local we met in a bookshop. The three staff were friendly and hard-working and the food enjoyed both by us and all the tables around. The range of interesting variations on a crèpe was fascinating. We had the Normandise special which was apple-based but flambéed before us fwith a copper pot of burning calvados !! The Breton specials and hosts were an added bonus. Well worth the visit and somewhere Montluçon can be proud of.
