We went to the Creperie on a weekday evening. Jonzac was as lively as a typical town in the zombie show The Walking Dead. But inside the smoke filled Creperie, the locals had gathered. The waitress showed us to a small courtyard behind the creperie and so far it was a fine evening. But then came the food.
The cook - we saw him on the way in and that we should have taken his shirtless t-shirt and powerful armpit presence as a warning - the cook had drowned our galettes in some kind of very old oil. The taste was something in between sawdust and last years sun oil. One was with a kind of meat sauce with very little meat but a lot of sugar.
To spice things up a bit we got some moules without frites but with an extremely generous amount of onions. I have never seen so many onions in one plate.
The salads were ok.

I think the place is great for a cup of coffee and a crepe with sugar. Our waitress and the lady who (a little shameful, she had to punch the numbers in twice because even she thought 78 euros was a high price to pay for oil and sawdust) but she too was polite and nice.

We are probably not coming back. Unless of course my alzheimer really kicks in.

I think you are the least well placed to give advice in cooking .

I wonder if you know how to cook an egg.

Sorry

Late on a warm summers evening, found us transported into this lovely little haven of tranqillity on the enclosed terrace. Perfect for a simple meal of excellent quality accompanied by some traditional cider. Simple childrens menu is in-expensive and keeps them happy as well. All this and friendly service as well is a delight to discover.

The owner will always receive you with a smile and a joke, what promises a good experience in this central place in front of the old market Building close to the main church of Jonzac. The selection of Galettes is very large and all are tasty and nicely filled. Prices are sweet. Tried the flambée crepe woith cognac and vanilla ice as a dessert, a marvel !

On a warm sunny day in early September all the lunch diners here were using the rear courtyard rather than the inside room at the front. It is an authentic small yard and the house next door is dilapidated, but the space itself is pleasant and shady. Most of the diners said hello to everyone on arrival and goodbye on leaving -- it was a nice relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Service was good. We both had salads and they were delicious.
