City Guide: Paris
Locals flock to this authentic Brittany-style crêperie.
While you may think it a bit cliché (like a New Yorker eating New York-style cheesecake), Parisians do eat crêpes. The go-to address for the authentic variety is the Breton-style eatery, Breizh Café. After all, these French pancakes originated in Brittany (also known as Breton). Our advice: begin with a savory option (Roquefort cheese and walnut is a fave) paired with bottles of hard cider and finish with a sweet version—salted-butter caramel is our top choice.
