La Petite Bretagne, Hammersmith Londom

La Petite Bretagne is a small restaurant chain with shops situated in Hammersmith and Clapham. They do waffles and salads among other things but the main food they serve are crêpes and mon dieu, do they do them well!

To give you a little bit of background on crêpes: they are a type of very thin pastry, usually made from wheat flour (crêpes de froment) or buckwheat flour (galettes). They originate in the French province of Brittany (Bretagne) and can be eaten with savoury or sweet fillings.

The Hammersmith branch is the one that I usually go to. It is opposite Bill's and also right next to Hammersmith tube station which is extremely convenient. 

Going for lunch is probably the best time to go but ! BEWARE ! it tends to get pretty busy around 12 noon. As the place is quite small, unless you are willing to wait or get a takeaway, go at an off-peak time or early to be guaranteed a table. 

My friend and I went for the ‘Grand Menu’ which is a pretty good deal as it includes any savoury crêpe, any sweet crêpe and any drink for £16.95. Other offers are also available so check out their menu to have a look. 

They were both heavenly and they only started preparing the sweet crêpe after you have finished with your savoury one which was very thoughtful on their part.  They make their crêpes fresh so they are lovely and soft! 
Tartiflette – Reblochon cheese, potato, bacon strips, crème fraiche, onion £10.95
Eton Mess – Strawberries, meringue, cream, strawberry coulis £5.95

Also! For all you gluten-free people, La Petite Bretagne make their crêpes with buckwheat so is suitable for coealics.

Honestly can’t fault much about this place – I must go and check out the branch in Clapham sometime though, I will definitely get back to y’all about that when I do ;) x

Catch me on:
