Anyone slightly familiar with French culture will know that when in Brittany, you eat crêpes. It’s not just a pancake day thing, but food one gets to enjoy all year long over there. Something my friend Sarah has had to go through while living in Nantes for the year. I say “go through” because she complained to me once about being fed up with crêpes – I know, beats me. Nevertheless, I forced her to have crêpes for lunch, yet again, when I paid her a little visit in Nantes.
We walked around Nantes for a while, following the green line on the ground that will guide you through the pretty streets of the city and stumbled upon a place I was really hoping we’d find: Le Coin des Crêpes.
It was very sunny, but also late for lunch time and we thus enjoyed their terrace all to ourselves.
Our nice waiter took our order and brought us not long after two massive, crispy and fresh delicious “galettes” (the name for black flour crêpes). You have the choice to compose your own crêpes and pick your toppings of choice, or go for their special crêpes: I went for ham, cheese, egg and mushroom, because nothing beats a good classic, while Sarah had a less conventional special which involved the brightest green spinach and bacon.
We ate at quite a few places throughout the week-end (including an epic brunch place) but that one really stuck in my memory and will be on my to-do list next time I’m around Nantes. I would love to go again in the evening to enjoy the atmosphere inside, but terrace and sunshine was a win that day. Make sure to check it out if you ever visit Historical Brittany!
