Le Petite Bretagne, Hammersmith
Inspired by the owner’s love for his grandmother’s gluten-free galette, this crepe restaurant is as authentic as they come. Serving freshly-cooked crepes made from buckwheat flour (gluten and wheat free), choose from a menu of sweet and savoury options. Choose your topping: cheese and ham; smoked salmon, dill and crème fraiche; salted caramel; and chopped strawberries, whipped cream and almonds. There’s something to suit all tastes.
