Buckwheat-crazed friends, we’ve found the best spot for you in southern Paris: the Crêperie de l’Ancienne Poste, where the galettes made by Marc Noblet have managed to liberate themselves from all the usual clichés! Running this lovely Armorican spot in a former post office (a whitewashed facade, a terrazzo bar, wooden booths, a lattice mezzanine, big windows), the former financier goes the extra mile when sourcing his ingredients, favoring local and artisan producers whenever possible: buckwheat from the Moulin de la Fatigue, organic eggs from Pontivy, smoked salmon from Maison Lucas, jams from Quiberon… The day we went for lunch, we opted for a perfectly folded buckwheat galette filled with thinly-sliced farm-fresh andouille, tickled by caramelized onions, a Comté-emmental cheese combo and a creamy mustard sauce; followed by a crepe gorged on buckwheat honey from Richard Laurance, paired with buckwheat ice cream and a profusion of toasted buckwheat grains… On Sundays, come for the sizable brunch: buckwheat blinis with salmon or sausage, salad, roasted potatoes, scrambled eggs, koings (Breton pancakes) with maple syrup, homemade salted caramel and sweet spreads, fruit salad, etc. It’s a buckwheat bonanza! // Pica Bidon 

FEELING THIRSTY? : A few pear ciders (Ker Anna by Julien Thurel for €29), beers (La Dilettante at €6.50 for 330 ml) and, naturally, hard cider from Brittany, including a dry Coat-Albret (€5 a glass), a co-fermented apple-rhubarb cider made by Cédric Le Bloas (€27 a bottle) or a Kystin ice cider with a syrupy flavor, made with apples that were harvested while frozen (€8 for 40 ml). 
PRICE: : Galettes €10 to €17.50, crepes €4.50 to €12, kids’ menu €14.
