About
Roule Galette is a little piece of France in the city where you will find French staff, speaking the language of Voltaire who will serve you in a warm and intimate setting reminiscent of Montmartre in Paris. Music, whether Breton or French songs of the last century or more modern times will accompany your meal along with authentic Cider from the Pays d'Auge in Normandie, or Cotes du Rhone or Burgundy wines. Not to forget the inimitable Orangina.

Roule Galette is one of Melbourne's favourite dessert spots. It's in Flinders Lane, near Swanston Street. The Galette are a sort of crispy pancake, made of buckwheat, which is a seed, not a grain. The buckwheat is grown in Tasmania. You can also order the...more conventional crepes. By the way, the gallette are gluten free, as they are made of grain-free buckwheat. The original Gallette come from Brittany, on France's Atlantic coast.More

Restaurant's Favourite
Reviewed 2 February 2020

It was an exceptionally hot day and we were fortunate to find an empty table inside the tiny indoor, very quaint part of the restaurant which is separated by an alley from the few outdoor tables opposite and another tiny indoor area where you pay...for your meal. A very interesting unusual set up which works well. The staff all seemed fluent in French and with many of the patrons chatting away in French too, we enjoyed feeling as though we were in France. My husband wasn't at all enthusiastic about stopping here for a meal and reluctantly ordered the terroir sausage meal whilst I ordered the sweet brie crepe. We both enjoyed our freshly cooked meals. The iced coffee drink was so delicious that my hubby immediately ordered a second. He was also wanting to sample a dessert crepe, but found he was too full. He is so pleased that we visited this fantastic restaurant and I know this will be on our agenda next time we visit Melbourne. In spite of the restaurant being so small, we never felt rushed and it was a very relaxing and wonderful dining experience.More

I had passed by a few times, but it was always busy. Today I timed it right and got to try a Galette. It was delicious and reminded me of Breton cuisine from times past. I looked longingly at the milkshakes and creamy deserts that...others were having, but my coffee and Galette were both great and I needed nothing more. The service was good and I was brought water without having to ask.More

Came here on a Saturday and was not aware of the 10% service charge on the weekend. Had two savoury crepes and two sweet ones, the spiced beef & lamb sausage one was our favourite. The waiters were friendly, even offered us to try the...French chestnut spread before in a teaspoon before ordering the sweet crepes. Overall we enjoyed our meal here.More

Roule Galette serves buckwheat pancakes, originating in Britany, on France's Atlantic coast. The pancakes are made of buckwheat. It is a seed, not a grain, so it is gluten-free. Buckwheat is grown in Tasmania. The galettes taste good, rather crisp. You can have a variety...of fillings. By the way, you can also have crepes, the more conventional French pancakes.More

I haven't had a crepe from a french cafe before and now I don't need to look for another one. Delicious. Staff were friendly, atmosphere (sitting outside in the lane) was exotic. Definitely will visit again. Looking forward to trying a galette.
