This cute creperie in Terreaux serves a range of fresh, light-as-air French galettes, alongside homemade, artisanal cider. The breakfast-style cafe invites both locals and meandering tourists, who come here for a bite of La Creperie du Major's famed crepes, be it the savory scallop and duck galettes or the ham galettes. The main attraction here, however, are the heavenly dessert crepes, served with melted chocolate, studded with almonds and topped off with whipped cream. The classic honey and butter crepes or the Chestnut cream crepes are worth trying as well.

On hot summer nights, you can enjoy your ice cream on the terrace. You can expect some crowd but the cold treat is well worth the wait.
