We love how both of La Petite Bretagne’s creperie-restaurants (here in Clapham, and at the other over in Hammersmith) have set out to dispel the myths about the crepe or the galette, those fabulous French pancakes, in order to set themselves up as gourmet purveyors, in meal-format, of what many regard as a mere snack-like indulgence. Gluten and wheat-free, La Petite Bretagne’s crepes are made from buckwheat; there are as many savoury galettes on the menu as sweet crepes; the restaurant’s offering is remarkably healthy, contrary to popular opinion; more than just a nibble, the way this French eatery does it the crepe can become a meal unto itself; crepes and galettes are never pre-prepared – they’re made fresh to order here at La Petite Bretagne’s Clapham Park Road premises!
Very good service and food! Will highly recommend it! The only thing was too much nutella in the sweet crepe, except that, it was delicious
We had a very, very good meal. Everybody in the group agreed that both the food and the service were excellent, and we definitely plan to go back at some point.
Food was pleasant, restaurant strangely empty, service almost too assiduous initially then not v very bothered. Crepes beautifully served and tasty. Wine choice limited but white Muscadet was cold as I like it and delicious.
With its chic, white storefront and outdoor seating area, you could easily mistake this little creperie for somewhere in the North of France. But alas, it is not. It’s in Clapham, but that doesn’t mean that the crepes and galettes served up are not the real deal, owned by a Frenchman who has been living in London for the past eight years. Back home in Brittany, La Petite Bretagne’s owner’s grandmother would cook delicious crepes and gluten-free galettes every Sunday, and he decided to bring a little piece of his childhood to London. With two creperies in the city, La Petite Bretagne is a haven for Francophiles and you’ll find the Clapham branch located on Clapham Park Road, just a few minutes walk away from Clapham Common tube station. Breaking the common misconception that are crepes are just for dessert, the menu at La Petite Bretagne offers both sweet and savoury options, so no matter if you’re looking for a filling lunch or something sweet, you’ll find something to suit you. Some of our favourites include the océane crepe with smoked salmon, dill, crème fraiche and lemon, and the breton treat with sliced apple, salted caramel and cinnamon. Matched with a French cider or wine... voila, you’ve got a northern French creperie that elevates the art to that of a proper restaurant experience.
