Creperie

“Lors de votre visite à saint malo, nous vous conseillons de vous rendre à la crêperie Le corps de garde, qui se trouve sur les remparts avec une vue incroyable sur l’île le Grand Bé et son frère, avec le fort du petit Bé. Les galettes sont délicieuses. Il est possible qu’il y ai un peu de monde, mais l’attente est très rapide car le service est très efficace (pas de réservations possibles, il faut venir sur place pour pré-réserver).”
