Holy Crêpe! @breizhperth is a go to place for us to eat when looking for a light (ish) lunch whilst in Perth since we moved to the area in 2015. Located not far from the river, Breizh Cafe is a nice French style casual diner serving Breton Gallettes (a savory crêpe made with buckwheat flour) with a range of fillings, pizzas, various sandwiches and other bistro dishes. I usually go for the Gallettes as they evoke pleasent nostalgic memories of a crêperie we used to eat at in the southern french town of Arles when visiting my french family! Their pizzas are also very good. These are cooked in their own pizza oven. Breizh also does a mean moules frites! This is usually my second go too if I'm not feeling in the mood for a Gallette. If you're in Perth and looking for a casual place to eat and have a catch-up then @breizhperth will give you a decent meal. If your lucky enough to be in Perth on one of it's few sunny days then be sure to use the outdoor seating for the real authentic french cafe experience! 🍴🍕☕🇫🇷👌

Enjoy a taste of the east coast with perthshire_foodie. Make Breizh your first port of call for amazing crepes, cooked meats from the grill and pizzas. Plan a visit to the Bothy (opens 21st August) and sample some Scottish favourites and bistro bites. Craving for more foodie experiences elsewhere? Have a spot of afternoon tea at Longparke Farmshop & Café or sink your teeth into the Pulled Pork Hash at The Bach in Dundee.
