I had never had proper savory pancakes before, but I was treated to an excellent and affordable batch at this restaurant! Many tasty options to choose from and a good selection of beer as well. Great for traveling on a budget!

Absolutely amazing savoury and sweet pancakes. Super super friendly service. Go for the sweet pancake with brown sugar and butter! Wow! My parents have been coming here for 30 years and it hasn't changed. Literally the interior is still the same which adds to the authenticity. Highly recommend it for a little snack or lunch. Also a simple ham and... More

Excellent tasty pancakes. There was something special about the taste (typical pancake from Brittany). Renowned pancake house! Friendly staff, reasonable prices.

You can choose out of two locations, but you always get a friendly service and a large, tastfull pancake. There are savoury and sweet pancakes, that is the easy part. The next bit is trickier choosing from a wide variety of fillings. I always take sweet with butter and dark brown sugar. That 's not a bit of butter or... More

Nice inside a touch of Brittany inside lots of photos of women in the national costume of Brittany and some Quimper pottery hanging on the walls. and very nice Breton pancakes to eat with coffee or tea or soft drinks or beer. I am Welsh and a Celt like the people of Brittany are. I recommend the pancake house

Very friendly staff and homely feeling with great pancakes. Choices for sweet pancakes or more dinner styled. Or my favorite the melange of the two.

We have heard about this pancake house, very famous, authentic and known for its traditional pancakes. When we decided to go inside, it looked well filled up. That is always a good sign. Style of this restaurant is old fashioned but it works. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Prices were reasonable. They have a wide selection and... More

This place has been in business for over 50 years. It serves sweet and savory crepes. The one I had (the house specialty "panache" with ham, cheese, and an egg sunny side up) was a full and tasty meal. After I was done, my plate glistened with butter residue, as is intended in this old school eatery. Several of the... More

Me and my girlfriend visited this nice cafe in Ghent city center and enjoyed two delicious pancackes. What a way to start the day. We'll go back someday and try also the salty pancackes!

This pancake house is an institution in Ghent run by the same family over several generations. The cafe is rustic, old style and again with wooden tables and chairs. Don't let its austere interiors put you off. There is an exhaustive variety of pancakes, served just how the Belgians eat theirs. Try their pancake with butter and brown sugar. The... More
