La Crêperie brings you the true taste of Brittany and brings it you no matter what your diet is.

About La Creperie
Crêperies are typical casual restaurants originated from Brittany (West of France) and where people can enjoy simple yet super yummy savory crepes (also known as galettes) and sweet crepes with a glass (or maybe two) of Breton apple cider. Bretons do love their crepes!
Originated from Brittany, our founder, Philippe Ricard, decided to open his first restaurant in Shanghai in 2007 with a simple idea: bringing the true taste of Brittany to Asia. After making its mark on Shanghai’s bustling dining scene, La Crêperie has quickly expanded its footprint across the region with outlets in Shanghai (3), Hong Kong (3) and Ho Chi Minh City (1) becoming an ambassador of the culture from Brittany in the Far East. Galettes and crepes are, of course, the stars of the menu but La Crêperie also plates up many other traditional French delicacies along with the freshest seafood from Brittany.
