SquareMeal Review of
This quaint, French-inspired pancake house and ‘cidrothèque’ is spread over three floors and decked out like a sitting room, with an open kitchen permeating the smell of warm pancakes. Perma-smiling staff try to help with the slightly confusing DIY ordering tablets (make sure your order processes), while the menu is a simple choice between meat- and cheese-packed buckwheat galletes or sweet crêpes, alongside tapas, salads and desserts. We began with buckwheat samosas stuffed with cheese and fluffy potatoes – a moreish take on the original. The Forest Complète gallete is delicate and thin, yet smothered in smoky ham and creamy cheese, while the rolled La Chateaubriand arrives stuffed with rich, meaty sausage and a punchy mustard dressing. Greasy melted cheese can be washed down with French cider from the strong list, strangely served in tea cups. Tablet ordering and an occasional lack of ambience aside, Mamie’s is great for mountains of cheese, unusual ciders and crêpe classics.
