Arrogantly French

Premium, Hand Crafted Crêpes, Galettes & Baguettes.


We specialise in authentic, traditional French crêpes, savoury galettes and baguettes which are made using quality, fresh ingredients, prepared daily and cooked on demand. 

Established in 2008 by life partners Michaël (native Frenchman) and Patrizia (Melbourne born), we can be found at three popular locations in inner city Melbourne.

La Petite Crepêrie, Hardware Lane is a fully licensed sit down crepêrie and café specialising in a range of savoury galettes made with 100% buckwheat flour, a great selection of sweet crêpes and French baguettes, salads and other quality breakfast, brunch and lunch items. We have a full range of beverages including Organic Fair Trade 5 Senses coffee, teas, French ciders, wines and more. 

La Petite Crêperie, Swanston Street (opposite the Melbourne Town Hall) is a takeaway kiosk located on the footpath where we serve a variety of delicious sweet crêpes in an easy to eat take away cone. The kiosk was formally a newspaper stand and has been transformed into a glistening ‘exquise crêpe bâtiment’ the first of it’s kind in Australia, bringing a touch of Paris to the hearts of Melbourne.

Most toppings are homemade or sourced from quality local providers. Come and watch our skilled and enthusiastic crêpiers as they whip up a traditional crêpe right before your eyes!

At our newly opened La Petite Crêperie, Gallaghers Place (rear Exchange Tower) you will find sweet and savoury crêpes as well as a new variety of traditional French baguettes made daily with premium ingredients such as traditionally made Barkly Smokehouse meats, French cheeses, home made mayonnaise (a favourite family recipe) and other healthy options. 

Our beverages include Organic Fair Trade 5 Senses coffee, teas and more. 

At all locations you will find a strong Arrogantly French atmosphere…where you will be transported, momentarily, to a little corner of France…

Located on the footpath on the corner of Little Collins and Swanston Street, our kiosk is Melbourne’s smallest yet most popular French take away delight!  You will find sweet crêpes cooked right before you and served in take away cones.  Favourite toppings include ‘lemon and sugar’, ‘nutella and almonds’, ‘real maple syrup’ and our famous homemade salted caramel (made with Sel de Guérande).  We are open until late every night.
