Hotel Britannique Photo, Paris, France
I stayed at the Britannique for 5 nights in early May 2008. If you were to take a map of Paris and make a dot at the center of that map, you'd land pretty close to the hotel.

This wood-paneled cafe is located in the Marais district and serves primarily crepes. The menu is pretty extensive and there are all sorts of choices - sweet, savory, vegetarian etc. We ordered one of the breakfast crepes with egg and the vegetarian one. Both were pretty good, but I'd pick the vegetarian crepe. The crepes are reasonably priced - mostly between 5 and 10 euros. We went there in the afternoon and were able to find a table pretty quickly. But my friends who recommended the place suggested reservations at dinner time. This joint is well worth a visit.
