What started as a home business selling organic yogurt and other produce has evolved into a Hongkou staple. Neighborhood demand compelled French couple Hano and Phillippe Jalllet to open a creperie offering an authentic northern French experience. It’s a family business, which adds an extra touch of warmth, but it’s only open during the day on weekdays.
Ambience: Cute and small. Seats around 30. Popular with families. Walls are hung with paintings of Brittany and ornaments come from northern France. There’s a display of organic produce available for delivery. It’s very community-oriented and organizes markets and bazaars.
Who to invite: A date or the family.
Food: Healthy. Hano was a doctor and the eatery specializes in organic produce. Ingredients are either homemade or imported ingredients and it’s noticeable with every bite.
Authenticity is emphasized and all savory galettes and crepes following traditional recipes. Portions are large but healthy ingredients ensures they are not too hearty.
Drinks: While there’s cider from Brittany, yogurt-based smoothies shouldn’t be missed. Also offer a variety of coffees, teas and sodas.
Recommended: La Bolaignese.
Cost: 148 yuan for one: Bébéamie set (green salad, La Spéciale crepe, apple caramel crepe, yogurt, juice)
