Crepes in Fafies, Kevin St

fafies-crepe1I wrote here before about the slightly bewildering salad and service that I received in Fafie’s Creperie on Kevin St back in February.  I did acknowledge in that post that I’d heard great things about Fafie’s crepes, and quite a few of our readers left comments saying that I should try it again.  I recently did, and of course our readers were correct – Fafie’s crepes are delicious.

They serve proper French buckwheat galettes which are unlike any others I’ve ever had in Ireland. The pancake cafe Lemon does buckwheat crepes but they are nowhere near as good as Fafie’s (although their other crepes are very good).  Fafie’s offers a huge range of fillings and choices, and it took me ages to decide. I eventually went for a spinach and goat’s cheese galette, and it was delicious – beautiful soft mild goat’s cheese and the galette itself had lovely delicate crispy edges.  The crepes and galettes cost around €9 and come with a simple side salad. Highly recommended for a light meal.

Fafie’s also have some good offers, such as a pre-theatre menu for €20, which will get you a galette plus a side salad, a crepe and a glass of house wine.


  1. Must try it – Andersons Creperie near Quinns Pub on Dorset street also do delicious Galettes for about €8.50 which are again meals in themselves.

  2. Fafies is the business. Their pear and caramel crepe with flaming calvados is unreal!

  3. Hi! Just stumbled onto your blog because of the crepe posting. I just created a new page on my website for the review of creperies (or any restaurant that serves them) and would appreciate your contribution. Would you consider submitting your opinion of Fafie’s Crepes to my crepe restaurant page? We’ve got some great dialogue on the subject. If so, I’ll happily post a link to your blog, if you like!
