Lake Street Bakery’s Buckwheat Crepes

By Anna Faller | Jan. 29, 2022

Itching to get the heck out of your house? We hear you. Luckily, France — or at least authentic Breton pastries — are only as far away as Boyne City. Owned by classically trained Boulanger Gildas Berrou, Gildas’ Lake Street Bakery has been shamelessly fueling local wanderlust since 2016. But the real crème de la crème (pardon the French) is its buckwheat crepes. Traditionally crafted from buckwheat flour — though “finding creperies that don’t add white flour is proving more difficult,” his wife, Tara says — Gildas cooks the delicate batter on a flat “bilig” griddle until each crepe hits that distinctive golden hue. Served street style — that is, held in your hand — the most traditional recipe, called the Complete, is stuffed with ham, Swiss cheese, and egg. But Berrou’s impressive array of flavors promises something for every palette. $4.50–$11.50. 110 S. Lake Street, Boyne City. (231) 497-6060.
