“To help you understand more about Le Petit Breton I will explain my own background. I was born and grew up in Brittany, France. My father was a chef & restaurateur and my mother grew all the fresh vegetables for the restaurant in the garden of our family home, in a sleepy fishing village in Finistère (‘end of the earth’). My mother also ran an épicerie (foodhall) where she made crêpes using an old family recipe. This idyllic upbringing gave me a real appreciation for good, honest, quality food.”
Grégory Autret has a foodie background that beats most, so it feels almost natural to see him opening his own restaurant. During his studies, his food led him to Ireland. What was his surprise to discover was a lack of Crêperies in a country where diversity in food is growing constantly. Last week, “Le Petit Breton” opened its doors in Drumcondra, and is ready to heat the griddle.
For french people, some name will sound familiar: Complète, Chèvre, Fromage Bleu… A good way to compensate homesickness! Irish citizens will fall in love with crepes soon as Grégory pays particular attention to his recipes which has been is in his family for four generations.
In addition to be tasty, the “Crêpe Bretonnes” are very good and affordable! Around €8 for a classic and €10 for a special. Once you visit, you experience should enhance your vision about Brittany and maybe you will drink a glass of Chouchen while listening to Tri Martolod and eating a good slice of kouign amann. Kenavo!
Le Petit Breton is an artisan crêperie located on the busy junction of Whitworth Road and Lower Drumcondra Road.
