Creating enhanced traditional recipes that become exceptional dishes is what Breizh Cafe stands for - the perfect balance between simplicity and excellence.

    Shortly after graduating from the Ecole Hoteliere de Dinard, Bertrand Larcher started a successful career as a chef and restauranteur. Moving to Japan in 1995, Larcher opened his first creperie, La Bretagne, in Tokyo's Kagurazaka district.
