Crêperie de St-Germain

Crêpes in St-Germain & Les Invalides

Scoffing a finger-licking crêpe in the street, slathered in warm chocolate Nutella or sweet crème de marron (chestnut paste), is a Parisian essential. Street stands are like gold-dust these days: make a beeline for this delightfully retro, racing-green kiosk in front of Église St-Germain des Près. It's cooked up large, thin pancakes to a faithful crowd for the last 20-something years.

In winter, order a beaker of vin chaud (mulled wine) for good measure.
