Cafe Breton: My Favorite Creperie Since Childhood (Robinsons Place Manila)

Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines

There's an old saying that "Old Favorites Die Hard".  That rule applies to Cafe Breton, my favorite creperie since childhood.

cafe breton
Whether its for breakfast, lunch or dinner, Cafe Breton is my go-to place for French Crepes and coffee.

I'm not very particular about their ambianceOur favorite branch at Robinson's Place seems a little cramped but no one seems to mind.

My preferred seating place is the one near the open kitchen so I could see my French crepes being prepared.

They have DIY options but I don't want to tickle my brain of such matters and trust their combinations instead.  However, on some occassions, if they run of a single or few ingredients in an item, you are allowed to substitute the said ingredient/s for others that are available.

Savory Favorites
Poseidon (248 php)

The Poseidon is my favorite.  It has smoked salmon, dill sauce, sour cream and capers.
Excalibur (215 php)
If you don't feel like eating fish, the Excalibur is a great choice for a savory but not-so-heavy meal.  It has ham, emmental cheese, fresh cream, asparagus spears, sauteed onions and mushrooms.

Savory Galettes (buckwheat crepes)
For a healthier choice, you can go for the Galettes which make use of buckwheat flour.  I used to think that buckwheat is a type of wheat or at least related to it.  But, after my research, I found out that buckwheat is actually a fruit seed.  It has a flavanoid called rutin which helps lower cholesterol and extend the action of vitamin C.  It is also a source of magnesium.  Its more important feature is being a gluten-free fiber.  Well, pardon me for being such a health geek but the bottomline is... its healthy! =)  
galette bretonne
Galette Bretonne (280 php)
The Galette Bretonne is a choice for seafood lovers.  It has spinach, shrimps sauteed with crab meat and onions, fresh cream and gryuere cheese.

galette don quixote
Galette Don Quixote (270 php)
The manly and savory is Galette Don Quixote has ground chorizo , onion, tomato, cream and mozzarella.

galette americain
Galette Americain (240 php)
For a hefty meal, try the Galette Americain with beef patty, mushroom, egg sunny side-up and tomato provencal.

Hamburcrepe (245 php)
Compared to the Galette Americain, I like the Hamburcrepe more because the burger patty is laid on a bed of spinach  and topped with sauteed mushrooms, cheese and tomato provencal.

Dessert Crepes
Eden (155 php)
Most of their desserts are too sweet for me.  My classic and default order is the Eden with stewed apples, cinnamon powder topped with whipped cream.


Hot Coffee
cafe au lait decaf
Cafe Au Lait Decaf (100 php)
Their hot coffee is nothing extraordinary but good to pair with dessert crepes.
cappuccino decaf
Cappucino Decaf (100 php)
Cold Coffee

cafe liegeios
Cafe Liegeios (130 php)
Sometimes, I go for their cold drinks just for an extra dose of sugar.  The Cafe Liegeios pronounced as "leej*wah" is my kind of cold drink with espresso coffee, ice cream, whipped cream and choco syrup.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Cafe Breton is my favorite creperie since childhood.  It's a low-key place that's serves good quality dishes and drinks that everyone just goes back for without any need for any marketing mumbo jumbo.  I just love their velvety soft and moist galettes and French crepes that can go with any topping I crave for.  The price is reasonable too.
