This small restaurant with rough stonewalls and rafters used to house the army's horses. Later, it housed a prostitute, then a photographer, then a Hungarian restaurant, and since 1992, La Galette. It's easy to miss La Galette when you walk down Larsbjrnstrde. Luckily a figure of Obelix with a big stone gives you a hint, and well hidden in a back building you'll find this true Crêperie Bretonne. The two-floor restaurant hasn't got more than 45 seats, often occupied by the local youth and the local French people. The menu is wonderfully simple: galettes, crêpes and fish soup. Galettes are special sorts of pancakes from Brittany, made from buckwheat (La Galette imports their buckwheat from Brittany). They are savory and eaten with a large variety of fillings including ham, cheese, salmon and/or vegetables.
