I've had many galettes in my life, being a big fan of the Breton delicacy but I can truly say that this restaurant served me the best one I've ever tasted !! It was just perfect! Plus, the decor is lovely and it is situated...in a lively street full of bars and restaurants.More

Though there are many options for crepes and gallettes in the neighborhood, this is my favorite. All the flavor and charm, none of the waiting for a table or cost. Well worth stopping through. The staff are friendly and inviting.

Very nice place and district. Very pleasant simple and nice restaurant. Traditionnal looking. Enjoy a perfect quality of crepes. I really enjoy to come here. With his cousin la "crêperie de Josselin "certainly the best crepes in Paris.

For me the best crepe ever. No matter which one you chose will blow your mind away. If in Paris , this place is a must. And try a flambé one.

Made perfectly and drowning in Grand Mariner. Flames before it is brought to the tiny table (just so you don’t get burned). Go forth and try. Be delighted.

We went here based on the previous reviews. The crepes were delicious. Ran into a couple that have been visiting Paris for the month of May for over a decade and they always make the visit to Le Petit Josselin. Great value for the money.

It is a typical Breton pancakes restaurant, with a twist: the « crèpes » are doubled, like a sandwich of pancakes with tje ingredients inside. It makes them softer and more filling ! Excellent choice of various toppings...

The lines are long and the place is packed, and still, it is worth every minute you will spend in this deliciously wonderful restaurant. Had the cider with a crepe Suzette and it was over the moon. We can't wait to go here every time...we go to Paris and you should go visit too.More

We accidentally stopped in here instead of the big Josselin, but we were SO pleasantly surprised and did not regret our move. Staff was very, very friendly and accommodating. They happily took our giant stroller in the back and stored it for our meal. They...also made great suggestions on the menu. We had one crepe that was filled with sausage, potatoes, and cheese-delicious. They even pan fried the sausages prior to stuffing. The crepes themselves were excellent crispy quality. These crepes were stuffed more than other places than we have dined, but the ratio was still very good. We had another crepe (which came suggested) of bacon, spinach, egg, and cheese-excellent!!! We had cider and a San Pellegrino. Prices were great, service was excellent, food was excellent. Dining area was filled with French and tourists alike. Tight, but usual for creperies. We would recommend!More

I can't imagine going to Paris without a meal at Le Petit Josselin for crêpes. It's authentic, delicious, and the ambiance is just like being in Brittany although a bit crowded. There are many crêperies in the Montparnasse area. This is the best. If this...is your first time looking for the place, remember that rue du Montparnasse is a small street and not the same as boulevard du Montparnasse. Bon appétit.More

The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the
landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that
goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas,
brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and
parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away
from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and
historical monuments and treasures. In between lie
adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small
