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 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 its 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 the newly opened La Petite Crêperie, Gallaghers Place (found at the end of the alley off Gallaghers Place; also rear of the Exchange Tower on 530 Little Collins Street) 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, European cheeses, home made mayonnaise (a favourite family recipe), salads and other healthy options. We have a simple, quality French breakfast menu too.  All items can be eaten on site or taken away in quality packaging.

Beverages include Organic 5 Senses coffee, teas, juices 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…
