Excellent experience here! Was able to choose from a variety of options and staff easily pointed out the NOT safe option (more safe than not safe). Was nice to feel included and enjoy these buckwheat crepes!

My husband and I went here for breakfast on our babymoon. We both ate gluten free as I’m Celiac. He enjoyed the buckwheat crepe with scrambled egg. Avocado. Cheese and bacon. Where I had the buckwheat crepe with arugula goat cheese and prosciutto ( no tomatoes for me !). I have to say the staff are incredibly friendly and the food was delicious. I felt safe eating here as a celiac being 7 months pregnant. Would def go back.

Make sure that they serve the dessert/sweet crepes with the dark colored buckwheat flour which is gluten free! We experienced a miscommunication or English-French translation error that resulted in being served a regular wheat flour dessert crepe.

I preferred buckwheat galettes and crepes before diagnosis, and this place has plenty of both to choose from for celiac and gluten eating folks alike. Not quite as good as the ones I remember having in Paris, but still quite tasty. The also make sweet crepes with wheat flour, but when I told them I had celiac, the server assured me that the griddle would be cleaned thoroughly before making my food, and I had no reaction after eating.
