Le Sarrasin et Le Froment

84, rue St. Louis en l'Île ,

Métro: Pont Marie

Crêpes are the ubiquitous street food of Paris. You can't visit Paris without trying one.

Whether you grab a crêpe from a store front pass through window, a street vendor, or sit down in a more relaxed restaurant setting, a crêpe makes a great snack. Put two together with a cup of cider and you have a satisfying light lunch.

Crêpes come in two basic varieties: those made from sarrasin, or buckwheat flour; and those made from froment, or wheat flour. The former are stuffed with a wide variety of savory fillings including mushrooms, ham, and tomatoes, and are often topped with an egg. Sarrasin crêpes on the other hand are used to make sweet crêpes and may simply be dusted with powdered sugar, or filled with other sweet fillings. A favorite is Nutella and bananas.

La Sarrasin et Le Froment is a small crêperie on the Île St. Louis. You can purchase a crêpe from the pass through window on the street and explore the Île St. Louis. But we recommend that you go inside and try the formule which features a choice of one sarrasin crêpe, one froment crêpe, and a cup of Brittany cider. The service is always warm and the food good.
