The crêpe revolution

Four Frogs crêperie is the story of four Frenchmen, known as the “Four Frogs”.

They loved everything Sydney had to offer; wonderful people, perfect climate and beautiful beaches. What was missing?

Authentic Bretagne Crepes.

According to Florian Guillemard, founding chef, there weren’t many places you could find authentic crepes in Sydney. That’s why in 2013, “les quatre grenouilles” gave back to the city they loved so much something precious & tasty – the crêpe.

Crepes are a specialty of Brittany, a region in France, where the tools & techniques of crepe-making have been mastered over the ages.

The four crepe masters brought all the traditional techniques and recipes used by the skilled crêpiers of Bretagne.

In France we love crepes; they are served fresh and delicious along with a glass of cider and good company. And that’s the reason we are passionate about replicating both the recipes and the experience offered by the authentic creperies in Bretagne.
Florian Guillemard

Truly, in all their creperies in Sydney, everything is catered to provide a unique, memorable & tasty experience.

An extraordinary approach

The menu is divided between sweet crepes and savoury galettes. They come in two different sizes – La Simple and La Double.

The crepes are traditionally made but they are adapted to Australian tastes.

The frogs use their secret family recipe and combine it with Australian dishes.

Thus, they experiment with a new “FrAussie” approach on all their dishes.

The sweet crêpes

It’s no secret I have a massive sweet tooth!

Therefore, I went directly for the dessert and took head-on two sweet crepes (crêpes sucrées).

Nutella overdose – a crêpe with almonds, Nutella and Nutella ice cream

The first one I picked is rather famous; white chocolate ice cream, grilled almond and salted caramel sauce.

The sweetness of the caramel, the crunchiness of the smoked almonds and the softness of the ice cream scoop were pure wickedness.

The crepe was paper-thin, soft in the middle and crispy on the edges.

However, if you don’t feel like being so adventurous, you can go for safer options and still be amazed.

Fresh strawberries with Nutella or dark Belgian chocolate is a combination that always lives up to expectations.

The second choice was a bit more explosive!

Let me introduce…

The Flambé

Created in Paris, in 1895, the famous Crepe Suzette (as it is officially called) is an all-time favourite among crepe lovers.

But what makes it so special?

Well, apart from being served on fire, the «explosive» combination of orange segments, candied orange zest, caramelised sugar and Grand Marnier, is simply divine.

The crepes (yes, there were two, I got La Double) arrived quickly; the Grand Marnier was poured onto the crepes and they were set alight in front of me.

The aroma that filled the air was really promising. As soon as all the alcohol was burned off, it was time to enjoy my meal.

Crêpe Suzette exceeded my expectations – the nice alcoholic kick from the liqueur along with the smoked caramel was delicious.

It was certainly the highlight of my visit to Four Frogs and I urge you to go for it!

The savoury galettes

Apart from the sweet delicacies, Four Frogs is also proud of its galettes (crêpes sales), the savoury version of crepes.

Made with Australian buckwheat flour, they are the perfect choice for all those craving a savoury bite.

High-quality ingredients

Crepes and galettes are simple dishes; therefore, to make them tasty, you need to use only the freshest produce.

I have learned that the savoury galettes are made from gluten-free buckwheat flour milled in-store.

This, according to the authentic Bretagne recipe, is done to preserve the freshness of the dough and fully deliver its strong taste.

Similarly, the salt used is handpicked from Guérande, a variety known as “fleur de sel” – the “caviar” of sea salts.

ingredients for a savory crepe

  • free-range eggs
  • freshly whipped cream
  • pepe saya butter
  • rich homemade chocolate
  • milkshake syrup
  • salted caramel sauces
  • quality farmer’s milk
  • fresh vegetables
  • ripe fruits
  • slow-cooked meats and
  • onions prepared with cider

Everything is lovingly prepared in-house “à la minute”.

What’s more, the frogs never forget to add their secret ingredient – whatever it is, it surely does the trick!

Et voilà, that’s how the best crepes in Sydney are being prepared!

Cider and crepes – the perfect duo

French cider is a natural drink made from apples produced in Normandy & Brittany.

Having cider with crepes is a French tradition and so in honour of that, Four Frogs offers a great variety of both French & Aussie ciders. They are served in the bolée (wide ceramic bowls) and they have the perfect balance of sweetness, acidity and bitterness.

Combining the right cider with your crepe or galette adds up to the whole experience, therefore, make sure to seek advice from the staff.

The coffee – a unique blend

All coffee lovers out there will appreciate this one!

Four Frogs work closely with a local micro-roaster and have crafted a full-bodied, rich coffee with a lasting chocolate aftertaste. It perfectly trails along with your crepe or galette.

The Verdict – best crepes in Sydney?

There’s nothing like a delicious crepe to fire up the day. Or end it.

The technique of crepe-making has been perfected to fine art in Bretagne and it’s difficult to find a better place to try than Four Frogs.

The service was charming and personal with French accents being heard in the kitchen and the «pyro-show» was one of a kind.
