The Creperie-Restaurant Du Vieux Port, a sweet, typically French and traditional creperie in Brittany. What more could you want?
It is obligatory to try a crepe when travelling around Brittany. After searching for the most authentic places, we came across this beauty, established in 1974. Tucked away at the end of a one-way street, the old stone building is home to a delightful creperie, perfect for a lunch stop. Inside, the tables are spacious, the interior protects you from the blaring sun and the food is good. Having said that, there is an outdoor patio for all those who prefer eating al fresco.
There is a vast menu of both savoury and sweet crepes to choose from. Naturally, we tried both versions. It is important to mention that the staff barely spoke English and translators were used when trying to decide what we wanted to eat. At first, you might think that a simple crepe will not suffice, but rest assured that these are filling, especially the savoury ones!
We each tried a crepe with ham, cheese and egg to start. It was delicious! The quality of the produce was evident, and the perfectly cooked egg oozed out over the plate. For dessert, Inigo tried a chocolate-based crepe (which we didn’t get a picture of because it didn’t last 2 minutes) and I ate a simple butter and sugar crepe. Again, delightful!
The only negative thing to mention is that there is a severe lack of parking around the restaurant and Google maps struggled to get us there. We managed to park the two bikes just outside the entrance, but our arrival involved us naively going up a one-way street illegally, without realising! However, overall, we certainly agree that this is a great crepere and one you should try.
