I love the fact that this teensy-weensy crêperie is a product of pulsating passion of three 28-year-old Parisians. Each has a full-time, high-powered job and this brand new Nariman Point creperie is their second life. They use their granny’s recipes and imported cold cuts, and ”carefully wash salads with drinking water”. Full marks for this! The functional, black-floored, wooden-table-and-chair décor (with a small bookshelf) does not prepare you for the worth-trying small, comprehensive menu of savoury and sweet crêpes, salads and all-day breakfasts. Though not superlative, we all agree that the savoury Buckwheat Crêpes (veggies, please note these are eggless and gluten-free) are well made with a variety of interesting fillings. Go for ”Campagne”, a sweet-savoury symphony of chicken bacon, honey, goat cheese and toasted walnuts. Predictable olive and tomato in the ”Mediteranee” finds favour. The best part? Mix and match your own fillings. Ditto for the salads. An okayish watermelon and roquette salad, a disappointing ”Nicoise” is followed by the yummy sweet (handkerchief thin wheatflour and egg) crêpes. Catherine’s favourite Caramel with a Salty Whisper and the nutella-stuffed one are worth trying. Crêpe Suzette (water of orange blossom instead of alcohol). For me it’s the classic sugar enlivened with a spark of lemon. You have Super Belgian Chocolate and exclusive tea — Mariage Freres —, fresh juices and well-made coffee too. High noise levels, shaky wooden tables, and lack of wine, cider and parking are the downsides. But on the whole, it’s great for a snack, a meal (Rs. 500 per head) and dessert. It’s a casual, home-style family, fun place. Crêpe lovers, rejoice!

owned by a frenchman, this tiny eatery in nariman point is trully fantastic. loved the crepes, salads and the juices. Ambience is very charming it reminds you of the small south of france cafes. Filtered water served in the french bottles is absolutely french. A friend of mine even fell in love with the french owner who attends to every guest himself. this restaurant has the best of india and france. french food at indian speed and cost. A must quick visit
