In order to have the line of customers move smoothly and to have them enjoy the luxurious desserts at their best, there are a few rules to be followed at the shop such as “no photography except for the desserts you ordered.” Another rule is that certain items are eat-in only due to their light and delicate texture. This is to prevent the desserts from being ruined from too much jostling and warm outside temperatures.

Lastly, each diner is allowed to order no more than 6 pieces of sweets. Though strict adherence to these rules are required and the line is long, the reward for all these efforts will be paid off once those mouth watering sweets melt perfectly in your mouth and your taste buds start to dance.

Breizh Cafe is the first Creperie in Japan. This cafe was introduced by Bertrand Larcher from Bretagne, France. Their signature menu item galettes are a thin layer of crepe made of buckwheat flour stuffed or topped with different ingredients such as eggs, hams, mushrooms, or bacon. It is a familiar local food that is enjoyed over cidre (alcohol drink) with families or friends in Bretagne area. Bertrand even invited three crepe chefs from France, believing that only crepiers have the ability to create authentic galettes. In addition, in order to ensure the high quality and to preserve the real taste of galettes, Bertrand is very strict when it comes to the ingredients used.

In Bretagne, many salty-sweets such galettes are widely accepted and enjoyed. While galettes are made with buckwheat flour and salty in its taste, crepes, what we know today as sweet desserts made of flours, were created at a much later time.

One of the most outstanding dessert crepes at Breizh Ginza is Sea Salt Butter Caramel Crepe, a balanced combination of ingredients from both land (butter) and sea (sea salt). When you are in Ginza, stop by Breizh, where their authentic taste will take you across the world to Bretagne!
