142 Crêperie Contemporaine
A favorite of President Nicolas Sarkozy, this small crêperie is situated on a quiet square in the 15th Arrondissement. The interior has plush brown chairs, polished wooden tables, and leaf-patterned lanterns, and seating is also available on the adjacent terrace, which is enclosed and warmed with heat lamps during winter. In addition to traditional sweet crêpes such as banana and chocolate, the affordable menu (written entirely in French) includes savory Normandy-style galettes—thin, square pancakes made with dark buckwheat flour. Fillings range from the expected ham, egg, and cheese to more unusual options like blood sausage with apples and potatoes.
