Experience French-inspired cuisine at this crêpe-centric café. Crêpes such as merguez sausage, turkey and Brie, and smoked salmon and caviar are popular choices. Open for lunch and dinner every day with a Champagne brunch on Sun. Reservations recommended.
Close your eyes and you’re on the Île St.-Louis listening to street musicians, watching the bateaux-mouches slide by, and snacking on a crêpe jambon et fromage (made with buckwheat flour) filled with Gruyère and wrapped in paper. Rue Des Crêpes’s cute café decor of whimsical street-scene murals is truly transporting. The menu supplements crêpes with salads and sandwiches, but what more could you want than a thin, savory pancake filled with Moroccan-style lamb sausage (merguez) and then a sweet one, oozing Nutella or simply doused with sugar and lemon? The street-side window from which you can watch your order transform from batter to crêpe on a heated, black iron circle transports you to the quais of the Seine.
