The savoury galette menu ranges from a traditional ham, egg and emmental version, to the suitably elaborate La Baudelaire: smoked salmon, egg, lemon-flavoured cream cheese, pickled onions, tomatoes, salad, pink peppercorns and herbs. When it comes to the crêpes, similarly, diners can have them as simple or as complicated as they wish. Make them sweet like Magritte and pile on home-cooked apples, salted caramel, vanilla ice cream and almonds, or perhaps the fiery La Jeanne D'Arc is more up your street: bitter orange jam, lemon and lime sorbet and flambée mandarine imperial.
Downstairs in the cellar, there's a secret cider bar that serves an impressive selection of French variations: whether your palate prefers dry, sweet, fruity, or even in the form of a cocktail.
