Description: Welcome to La Crêperie!Our restaurant was born in July 2007 in Shanghai. Its first aim was to bring the French community some of the most typical food from Brittany; what, as Bretons, we could only consider as a real lack in this huge city where we could already find a large variety of international cuisine… It was also our will to give the Chinese an opportunity to taste our authentic and original recipes.Today, not only the French but also many foreigners and more and more Chinese citizens are becoming regular customers. Coming to La Crêperie is about enjoying our great specialties of course. But we are also very pleased to introduce the Brittany region to the many travelers and dreamers visiting our place.This is why coming to La Crêperie is as if you were escaping from Shanghai for the time of your stay, enjoying our numerous very authentic galettes, crêpes and even fresh oysters from Riec sur Belon (famous in Brittany). You will also have the chance to drink various apple ciders while listening to Brittany traditional music in a friendly atmosphere and nautical decor.After Shanghai, Honk-Kong and Saigon were the other ports where La Crêperie decided to open. You will find there the same concept but you may discover other specialties from our region prepared by our Brittany Chef.So, if you are in Shanghai , Hong-Kong or Saigon, and willing to quit the busy and noisy life of the streets, look for the lighthouse, the symbol of Brittany that we borrowed to show you the way to safety and comfort…Welcome on board,Kenavo!

“Great crepes”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Went there for lunch from time to time over the past 2 years, there was consistency in the quality of the food, service and drinks.
It is busy (and yes, noisy) all the time and i would recommend to book even for lunch.

Hi,

Thanks for your great review.
We recently opened one new store in Jing An district on Nanjing West Road with more space and I believe will be less noisy than the first store. you are more than welcome to give it a try.
you will find out there the same recipies, crepes and galettes than the first branch on TaoJiang road.

sincerely,

Thomas from La Crêperie

“Good crepes”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

They have a good variety of crepes and inexpensive wines by the glass. Even served by a French man in Shanghai. How can you go wrong? Great for a relaxing lunch.

“Great crepes. Messy service.”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

We went at 11 am on a Saturday. We were asked (twice) if we had a reservation and we told them (twice) that we did not. From their reaction, you would have thought we were trying to board a plane without a passport rather than just get a table without a reservation. There were some humming noises and expressions of disbelief and eventually we were accomodated outside. We ordered two crepes and a couple of coffees and waited. Our coffees arrived soon enough but after half an hour, there was still no sign of our crepes. I was getting bitten by mosquitos and the baby woke up so we asked to move inside - there wasn't a problem with this. Ten minutes later, still no crepes. Eventually I think they noticed and suddenly we had great service and our crepes turned up. It would have been a two star rating, maybe even a one, but the crepes were fantastic. Excellent ingredients, beautifully executed, properly French. We liked them so much we ordered two more (both of which came very quickly). The salted caramel crepe was to die for. I had to be winched off it. I think I licked my knife in public. In the end, I was impressed. We will return. I hope we get less of the attitude next time but maybe we just got them at a bad time? Maybe it's just a French thing? Either way, I'll know for future: make a reservation.

“Casual and friendly”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Dinners with big or small group are a good idea since its easy to have your own portion and pay for it. Cider is a nice addition to the meal. Service is a bit slow, so don't go there is you're starving.

Gallette with goat cheese was a great choice, and after a long pause i was finally able to add sauteed spinach for extra price. Seems practice of charging for extra toppings is non-existent. American galette was so-so, better stick to more French flavors. Crepe Suzette is a good dessert option, apple-cinnamon one was a bit disappointing with all wet apples and dried cinnamon, I expected more of caramelized apple filling. Chocolate sauce could have been of better quality, too.

Purchased a jar of house made salty butter caramel but was a bit underwhelmed, could be a better spread for the price. I love cooking with buckwheat flour and was trying to ask for purchasing some but waiter insisted its not possible-so overall seems they can't handle extra requests well. Will probably be back for a casual meal but not in a rush.

Hi,

La Crêperie would like to thank you for your review.
I believe that you may have visited our store on week-end maybe, that would explain why the service was "slow".
All our crepes and galettes are cooked on demand. All our products and ingredients are fresh and we don't do any crepes or galettes in advance. That's our motto !
Please accept our sincere apologies for your "not so good" experience at our restaurant.
We hope to see you around pretty soon, we will do our best to make it up to you !
Feel free to try our other location in Jing'An too !

Sincerely,

Thomas from La Crêperie

“Love it!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

First off, let me begin by saying that this is really the type of restaurant that I enjoy going to. It's cozy, unpretentious,has a semi-casual atmosphere and very tasty food.
I went there on a recent Saturday evening with my boyfriend. We were greeted by a waiter who showed us to our seat. The place was quite busy, but we were able to get a seat without a reservation. We each ordered crepes and they were fantastic! For dessert we shared a sweet crepe that was just as tasty. For drinks, we had good ciders and well-made coffees. Service was attentive and price was reasonable.
It was all great! I will be back!
