A taste of Bretagne in Budapest

Today we discovered a new French creperie called "A la Galette," close to our old neighborhood in Pest (thank you, Nasko and Eniko for taking us there!). It is owned by a French couple and decorated in the spirit of Bretagne, which is also reflected on the menu--they offer pancakes and galette (buckwheat crepe) in many shapes and flavors.

Here Ruslan is browsing through the Budapest-published French newspaper while the rest of us are browsing through the menu, trying to choose among many yummie things.

I don't know what's in the box with the cow but I liked it so much. Right next to it is coffee, from Bretagne. Not sure what so special about coffee from this region but I have a thing about boxes.

You can buy all kinds of foodstuff from Bretagne, from biscuits and chocolate to pate and, of course, cider (I tried it today for the first time and it's definitely not my thing).

Blue and white are the colors of the restaurant, with pictures of the sea and various navy motives scattered strategically, but with taste.

I don't know much about Bretagne but the pictures that I saw today piqued my curiosity. I'm adding it to my list of countries/regions that I would like to explore. Beautiful landscapes, a quirky regional identity and lots of pancakes--too good to be missed.

Everything was so nicely packed, very tempting--but unfortunately very pricey, too.
