Fast, Casual, Yet So Very French: La Bretagne Creperie

If you want a tasty, quick, no-frills lunch during your Vancouver sightseeing, head to La Bretagne Creperie (795 Jervis Street, Vancouver).

All crepes are made to order. For each savory crepe on the menu, you have your choice of a crepe froment (organic white flour) or galette sarazin (organic buckwheat flour). We opted for the galettes.

French onion soup (CAN $6.25).

Excellent version of this classic comfort food. Highly recommend.

Apple, cinnamon, Swiss cheese crepe (CAN $6.95). Add sausages (CAN $2.75).

Because we knew we were going to skip dessert, we got one of the sweeter savory crepes. Paired with the sausages, this felt like a decadent late breakfast. The galette was thin and delicate but strong enough to hold the generous contents. No sogginess here!

Salardaise crepe -- duck confit, onion, potato, white wine sauce (CAN $13.20).

While this photo may look unappetizing to many, this makes me say yum, yum, yum. The rich duck confit was such a luscious treat in the middle of the day.

I wouldn't say La Bretagne Creperie is a destination restaurant, but it is certainly worth a stop if you're in the area. We left quite happy.
