Breton crêpes and galettes - Tourism in the Ille-et-Vilaine

Crêpes (pancakes) and galettes (buckwheat pancakes) are the region's famous gastronomic specialities. Pancakes are generally made with white flour, sugar, butter, eggs and milk. They taste lovely served with something sweet like jam, honey or ice cream, but also with salted butter. Served with butter and sugar, they are really delicious!

Buckwheat pancakes are made with buckwheat flour, eggs, butter, salt and water and are mostly served with savoury fillings. The galette complète (with egg, ham and cheese) is a true classic. Delicious, especially when served with a good local cider!
