Whether you prefer sweet or savoury, there’s a crêpe for everyone in Paris

Le Crêpuscule

Your one-stop crêpe shop in the 18th arrondissement takes its name from a fun pun on the French word for 'twilight'. All the crêpes at Le Crêpuscule are made from organic ingredients and you can complement yours with a dollop of artisanal ice-cream or a tea from the vast range.

If you only try one, make it: Le Sud-Ouest (smoked magret de canard, onion confit, potatoes, confit duck gizzards).

Little Breizh

The crêpe's spiritual home is Brittany, and this café aims to bring an authentic taste of the north-west to the capital. There are only a handful of seats, so you may want to unleash your inner flâneur and enjoy your crêpe al fresco in the heart of Saint-Germain.

If you only try one, make it: Sea Chic (smoked salmon, creamy dill sauce and fresh lemon).

Les Frères Bretons

Another Breton export, this cosy restaurant near the Eiffel Tower is a great spot to relax with a sweet or savoury treat after a busy day of sightseeing. Wash yours down in true Breton style with a glass of the region's famous cider.

If you only try one, make it: La Chorichèvre (chorizo, goat's cheese and mixed salad).

Marche ou Crêpe

It may take its name from a Stephen King novel (Marche Crève, or The Long Walk) but this delightful restaurant in the 20th arrondissement is no horror story. Choose from a smorgasbord of toppings laid out before your eyes to concoct a crêpe creation that Willy Wonka would be proud of.

If you only try one, make it: Praligrain (caramelised hazelnuts) and top it with extra banana.

Crêperie Gigi

In the trendy Marais you'll find this suitably cool crêperie with some out-of-this-world flavour combinations. If you're stopping by in the evening, don't miss the Bouchées Apéros - your favourite crêpes paired with a glass of wine.

If you only try one, make it: Breton sausage, apple, comté cheese, crème fraîche and mustard.
