A few days ago, I stumbled upon a gorgeous little crêperie just off La Place de la Comédie (the main square) in Montpellier. It is one of the oldest creperies in Montpellier, having opened in 1980 and is still ran by the same family who opened it all those years ago. The menu boasts a huge variety of crêpres, both savoury and sweet. From a classic ham, emmental and egg galette, to scallops with creamed leeks and from spiced apple to caramelised banana with warm chocolate sauce. The selection is mouthwatering and I had great difficulty in deciding which to chose!
The interior of the restaurant was far from what I had expected – the restaurant looks almond like the inside of a large sail boat, with wooden walls, petite round windows and ring buoys hanging from the walls.
A spiral iron staircase leads to the washrooms where the doors read ‘captain’ and ‘lady’.
After much deliberation, I went for the seafood galette with homemade Provençal sauce. The seafood medley of prawns, mussels and calamari was fresh and perfectly cooked, combined with a creamy, rich and subtly spiced sauce.
(Admittedly, it does look rather unappealing in this photo, but trust me, the flavour was incredible!)
I was a satisfied customer indeed, ..
.. so satisfied, in fact, that I went back the very next day to share this little gem with a friend.
