8 Places to Find Delicious Pancakes in Paris

Although Paris is well-known for its delicious crêpes and its fine food, pancakes coming straight from America are getting more popular every day in the capital thanks to their unlimited range of possibilities. Here are a few of our favorite places.

In Melbourne’s style, near the Canal St Martin in the 10th arrondissement, this cafe offers 3 pancake options which will satisfy everybody’s preferences:

  • The “Savory Stack” for those who like their eggs, bacon and maple syrup – €13.50
  • The “Sweet Stack” for those with a sweet tooth who enjoy their pancakes with some fresh fruits, some cream, a few roasted hazelnuts and topped with some maple syrup – €12.50
  • The “Plain Pancakes” for those would rather stay simple, simply with some butter and, of course, maple syrup – €9.00

We like it for its wide range of choices, its large servings and its quick service.

We like it less for its waiting time: the queue might seem too long.

There is a relaxing atmosphere in this vegetarian restaurant close to Châtelet – Les Halles. It offers two pancake sizes with either a normal flavor or a gluten-free/vegan alternative, topped with some fruits.

The restaurant serves large and substantial serving with its  “Full Stack” for €9.50 but it will also persuade those who are more reluctant with its “Half Stack” for €6.50.

We like it for its very good value for money and its English-speaking staff.

We like it less for its loud environment due to the large number of people in the restaurant.

Big Love

30 Rue Debelleyme, 75003 Paris

This cafe part of the “Big Mamma” group is widely known for its fluffy ricotta pancakes.

The well thought out decor will project you directly from le Marais to a cute local Italian grocery store in no time.

Their pancakes served with fresh fruits can be bought for €9.00 without booking.

We like it for its setting and its quick service.

We like it less for its surrounding noise.

The perk: they print a recipe on their receipt!

This cozy cafe located very close to the Champ de Mars is particularly popular for its filling tasty brunch; with both salty and sweet options.

Their “Dutch Baby Pancakes” are not your traditional pancakes but rather a novelty since they are cooked in a very unfamiliar way: in a cast iron pan.

The pancakes can be included in their brunch course for €25:

  • The “Tomato” has some baby tomatoes, red onion, goat cheese and a sunny-side-up egg
  • The “Bacon” with some bacon, Comte cheese, chives and a sunny-side-up egg
  • The “Strawberry” is served with some fresh fruit and maple syrup

We like it for its fresh products and its plentiful portions.

We like it less for its small room (about 20 seats).

This restaurant in the 10th arrondissement does not only provide a pleasant surrounding -not far off the Canal St Martin- but also some appetizing Mediterranean style vegetarian dishes.

Their very popular ricotta pancakes are presented with some cream, fresh berries, and dates topped with some maple syrup for 10€.

We like it for its delightful setting facing the canal and its quick and observant staff.

We like it less for its too few choices.
