It is very convenient to get to Paris from my Norman town by train. The train arrives at the Gare Montparnasse, which happens to be next to the Breton quarter of Paris. For those who like Breton or Celtic music and dance, the Mission Bretonne is a great starting point. For those who like authentic Breton buckwheat galettes and crêpes and and an accompanying bowl of hard cider, this area is definitely where to find them. My husband was craving a classic jambon, emmenthal, and egg combo. I went for a mushroom, spinach, and emmenthal one. Dessert was a simple lemon/sugar crêpe, light on sugar, heavy on lemon. For cider, my husband chose two bowls of the strongest one the crêperie had.

It was a refreshing meal, but a word of warning–be ready to spend about $25 a person for a galette, a dessert crêpe, and a bowl of cider.
