The Brittany-inspired krogkonceptet Creperie & Logi has landed in Stockholm. Originalkrogen are since 2006 in Visby, number two is located in the jämtland skidmekkat Åre. It is now served the same basic menu – galetter, crepes, and dry cider – also on Surbrunnsgatan in Stockholm, in the the hawaiian pub Makais old premises.
Here is rustic and cozy, with wooden furniture and flickering candlelight.
of course, It is not the first crêperie in town – Four knots, for example, has been serving French pancakes on Svartensgatan since 1993 – but still are only a handful of restaurants with this specialty, so the one who mastered the concept should have a good chance to reach an audience. At least among women, it should be added, four of the five guests here are women. The owners have thought a lot about this, we are told, and a waiter adds up fast to one of the most prolific frequently visited this venue is. Possibly, it has rather a connection with the women, than it is a sign of a gender counterbalance.
that men tend to not consider the crêpes as a full meal; a KK member has clear memories of a male company after a hearty ration of a stockholmskt creperie starved and matarg set itself to cook the couscous, with the comment: ”I need real food”.
Perhaps it is such reactions that led to Crêperie & Logi to make the portions well-sized – a waiter tells us that the ”greatest fear” is that someone will think that the dishes are too small. The concern, however, is entirely illusory.Madame, of sek 255. Photo: Krogkommissionen
The lavish pancakes will, as well as in France, in both warm - and efterrättsversion. The savoury galetterna is made with buckwheat flour – a feast for all who want to lie low, with gluten – and go here to get in an impressive variety of designs. Basvarianten Complete (emmentaler cheese, fried eggs and ham, arugula, tomato, sek 98) is accompanied by a number of variations with chicken, meat, fish, vegetarian and vegan.
is consistently wonderful. Extra-everything philosophy does, however, that several variations feels clumsy and sophisticated loaded. Roquefortkyckling (175 sek) is no exception and almost impossible to get in; creamy and smooth, but at the same time, flavorful with thin cut pieces of chicken in the sauce. It would have been nice to get to know what type of chicken used (you want to hear the magic word organic) but it has the friendly waiter no idea.
the Parade of fish - and skaldjursmenyn, Madame (255 sek), is closest to the grotesque. With shrimp, salmon, seafood mix, kräftröra and roe is simply too much. With rörorna made with seafood in a jar, belongs to the Madame not the best option. Krogkommissionen is also not so fond of the idea to press down a cold porslinsskål with the crème fraiche in the middle of galetten at the restaurant.
A cleaner and better choices is the Roe (225 sek), with a proper serving whitefish roe, red onion, arugula, crème fraiche and a slice of lemon, on a galette where västerbotten cheese melted in the laggen.Snuggle, galetter and cider. Photo: Krogkommissionen
Also Vego Monsieur (125 sek) is a good option – where has the thin, huge galetten folded double to a kind of pannkakans calzone, and filled with fresh leaf spinach, grilled mushrooms, tomato slices and emmentaler cheese. The dijon mustard that smetats on galetten before the weight is probably intended to give the right a more grown-up, the sharper the taste, and sure it does, but it feels homemade and rough.
It is not the dream of a slim waist that makes the crepe and galetter to the popular dishes.
Pancakes are the many children's favorites. The parent who does not want to let the kids go loose on the desserts can directly offer them a small croque-monsieur-pancake (55 kr) and cheese skinkfyllning. Really good in its simplicity, and in an appetizing size, which leaves little space for the sweet.
have a nutellafylld crepe (85 kr) is counted to the traditional – it is as powerful as the leaks for minors and all others who kept a childish liking for the sweet nougatsmeten.
the More festive and tasty is the efterrättscrêpes as flamberas at the tables. These include, for example, Rom (159 kr) with butter, sugar, banana, salt caramel sauce and a bowl of vanilla ice cream (also located at the center of the pancake) of a standard quality. In another variant, it is the sweet citronlikören limoncello, which burns at the table.

According to the French tradition is the dry cider is the perfect drink to galetter and crepe. Creperie & Logi has a number of good varieties, such as the sophisticated and smakintensiva Dupont Pays d'auge (235 sek), a norman dream.
It is not the dream of a slim waist that makes the crepe and galetter to the popular dishes for women – the conclusion should all readers can be drawn at this point. Not, the cuisine is particularly refined, but it goes a long way to be likable and generous. The price tag for a filling meal at the Crêperie & Logi also makes uteätandet affordable for many.
