A circumstance would have it, when the craving for a lazy Sunday brunch set in, I was lucky enough to be in the city. I wasn't about the pass up on an opportunity to indulge myself silly, so a decision was made (by me) to head to Roule Galette and feast on galettes and crepes.
I'd walked past this establishment many times, yet never ventured in, even though the dulcet tones of the french singers over the sound system in this small little cafe called to me. I couldn't help but notice the interesting artwork, obviously produced by someone affiliated with the cafe, and whoever designed their logo certainly had a sense of humour.
I'd ordered the Forestière, filled with béchamel (French white sauce) with bacon, mushroom and cheese.
M chose the somewhat more 'breakfast-like' Complète with an egg, ham, shredded cheese and butter.
One glance at the picture of the Anne-So, with chocolate, ice cream and flaked almonds, on the menu and my decision was made.
Both of us left Roule Galette feeling very satisfied and cheery, with bellies filled with good food that cost surprisingly little. Fast service and good food at a reasonable price definitely make this a great cafe to indulge in a delicious crepes, galettes and coffee, and for imagining that you're in a tiny, cosy cafe in Bretagne, France perhaps.
