Delightful, delicate, and delicious! I'm sad to report that the opportunity to dine here is going away in March. If you like crepes, hurry up and pay a visit in the next two weeks!

The menu selection was limited and the price was too high for a crepe and a thin layer of ingredient inside. Would not go there again. My friend asked for an item to be removed from the order but it still came with the green onions. The food was not super hot. The server was very friendly and the service was good, but that was it.

We were there at 5:30 for early dinner. Our waitress could have been more attentive and friendly seeing that we need anything while waiting for order rather than lighting candles. for just the two of us in restaurant I would think it would have been faster. The Chicken Crepe's were great but could have used more of a presentation on plate. As well as the Blackberry Crepe's could have just had a dab of whipped cream on top.

I've owned two restaurants and presentation is everything.

The service was great and the food was tasty, unfortunately, the crepe/gallette had paltry ingredients leaving a lot of bites of the dough without the filling

One of our favorite restaurants. No longer is it necessary to fly to Paris for a great crepe at Creperie Josseliin on Rue Monparnasse (generally regarded as the best in Paris), much less make it up to the lovely Brittany. The crepes here as good, and the husband and wife owners are as charming as you will find anywhere. Try the "complet" (ham, gruyere, egg) with carmelized onions. The lemon crepe for dessert is to die for. They also have a very carefully selected wine list with truly modest prices. Try the Vacqueryas.

Yummy crepes and mimosas. They make a delicious kir royale as well which was such a treat. I really loved the crepes we got, but the vegetable soup was a strange purée that had no taste and was very bland. Stick to crepes and mimosas and you won’t go wrong!

This is a ittle hole in the wall. But don't let the casual atmosphere fool you - these are some seriously good, authentic crepes. Everything was fresh, including the hot bread. Salad was shareable. Both dinner crepes and dessert crepes were excellent as was the service. There is parking in the back so a great place to head out to if guests drop in and you don't have anything to make. Can hear conversation in there, which is always a plus. Will definitely be back.

I've been missing Ti Couz in SF which closed several years ago, after trying many crepe places over the years Brittany Crepes is exactly what I was looking for. And the prices are quite reasonable - don't limit yourself to dessert!

It was nice to find that this place has street parking right next to it. Went here for lunch. Enjoyed the crepes and cider. Like that the owner(s) work the restaurant and that they're French! This added to the overall ambiance and made it feel like a little get-away to France!

The service by a French man was really good, friendly. We had a good time. Regarding food, Galette de Sarrazin are good, but my advise is too stay with the simple one. complete with ham, egg and cheese was the best, while other was more attractive on the menu than in the plate. Sweetie crepes were good too, as well as the cider. Almost the same experience as a crêperie in France!

Everything about the meal and experience was satisfying. The fact that the French Onion soup was vegetarian was a nice surprise (especially since one or both of us probably would have ordered it anyway). They don't seem to be trying too hard to create a "French atmosphere," and perhaps that's part of the reason that it feels like some of the places where I've eaten in France...

Food was absolutely uneventful. Crepes were fine but fillings were bland and just blah. French onion soup was worst I ever had. Seriously, Lipton Onion Soup mix is a tastier bowl of soup. It was beige. Not a rich broth with cheese baked to a golden brown.

The server wasn't particularly friendly either. He didn't engage and sort of seemed impatient. Weird since there were two parties preparing to leave when we arrived. Should have been more willing to chat/make recommendations. When I asked about the (limited) wine selection, he just said think about it and he'd be back.

I could have forgiven all of this (underwhelming food and service) if I wasn't paying top dollar. Prices were comparable to much better creperies.

Crossed off my list of places to dine.

This is a great place for real Brittany style crepes! The service was excellent, and the crepes were delicious. The menu very much reminds me of Ti Couz that used to be on 16th Street in SF's Mission District. How I have missed that place! But, this one fills that need for the delicious buckwheat crepes with savory fillings. I didn't try the sweet crepes, but they looked delicious. I had the classic ham and cheese (with scrambled eggs, as I was in the mood for breakfast). When I saw the smoked salmon crepe being served at the next table, I knew I had to come back soon. Looked incredible. Great coffee, too. Also noteworthy is the charming Brittany-style decor. There were many pictures, a few gorgeous examples of lace, nautical items and and other artifacts, some beautiful tiles hung on the wall in the restroom, and there were small fresh bouquets on each table. The location on University is just a few blocks away from Berkeley's 4th street shops, and offered a pleasant respite from the crowds over there on the weekend.

I went for a full three-course. The mixed greens salad was fine for a starter. The savory course was a Complète -- ham and egg. It was tasty and well-prepared. The dessert course, a Belle Hélène, was fine but a little messy.

The prices were high. A small boule of cider was $7. Total including tax and tip was about $42.

I found the food like I had in a small town in France, but I will be looking for more affordable authenticity. I was there early on a weeknight and was the only diner seated. There was one to-go order while I was there.
