what to do in and around Girona for visitors to the town
La Crêperie Bretonne
We've been going for years now. It's a chain i've seen in the south of France (Colliure anyway) and they do the best salad in town (as well as crêpes and galettes). We have the salad with fresh goat's cheese, serrano ham, apple and grapes with a great mustard vinagrette. Then we have a savoury crêpe each and on a good night we might fit a sweet one too. Manel always has a 'healthy' virtual vegetarian option and i go for the 'English breakfast' option but in French obviously. By this time we're probably quite tipsy and don't mind too much that we're just not going to digest before bed! We're middle aged you know but i haven't heard any teeenagers complaining here! You can crayon on the table cloths and admire the kitchen-in-a-bus decor. It's not at all expensive, the house red is absolutely fine and the staff have been unfailingly friendly and helpful. You can have cider if you prefer. It's a very relaxed place but you're not kept waiting around. It's good for lunch too. It's in the old town, as you walk towards the cathedral.
