Creperie Bretonne Annaick
Another French creperie here, this time with roots in Brittany, home of the crepe. Creperie Bretonne Annaick is located on Ramón Trías Fargas, 2, just a stone’s throw away from the beach. The interior is very stylish, with a double-decker bus serving as the kitchen. It is also very colourful, with many retro signs and hangings giving it that trendy feel. They have a good range of food on the menu (although mainly crepes!) and everything is delicately presented to you with that touch of personality that the French do so well. It’s been open in Barcelona for many years, tourists often returning year after year on their holidays only too glad that it’s still going strong.
