Gluten Free Organic 100% Buckwheat crepes (Galettes)!
That is what Crêpes Sans Frontières is all about: healthy and tasty. Galettes are savory crêpes based on buckwheat flour. Buckwheat is not wheat… It is a fruit seed related to rhubarb. It is very healthy and gluten free. It is low in calories and known to promote a healthy cardiovascular system. Diets that contain buckwheat have been linked to lowered risk of developing high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Buckwheat's beneficial effects are due in part to its rich supply of flavonoids, particularly rutin. Flavonoids are phytonutrients that protect against disease by extending the action of vitamin C and acting as antioxidants. Buckwheat also rich in magnesium which relaxes blood vessels, improving blood flow and nutrient delivery while lowering blood pressure— the perfect combination for a healthy cardiovascular system.
The galettes are one or the oldest traditions of humanity. In Brittany, they were cooked on flat stones called "jalet" from which the name "galette" originated. Buckwheat was brought to Western Europe by the crusaders. The Bretons adopted it immediately. This grain had the particularity to grow very quickly and to adapt to infertile soils. More importantly, since this flour was not proper for baking bread, the king of France did not tax it. The galettes became, for centuries, the basic meal of the Bretons.
Our sweet crepes are made of our home-made blend of organic whole wheat flours. The filling range from the classic freshly pressed lemon and powdered sugar crepe (La Sicilienne) to the more complex and modern Bresilienne filled with Acai fruits, bananas, strawberries and home-made whipped cream. Of course we also serve the amazing banana and Nutella crepe for the sweet tooth, a World-wide favorite. Our Nutella is imported from Italy.
The desert crêpes, to contrast, required luxury products, like sugar, butter, and wheat flour. This is why the first crêpes recipes came from Paris. These recipes were later adopted by the Bretons and enhanced with the flavors brought back to Brittany by their sailors: Vanilla, Orange flowers, Rum and Cinnamon.

Ionized alkaline water supports the wellness of bodily organs while promoting the health of those same organs. Part of the reason for these benefits is that ionized alkaline water has been demonstrated to be an anti-oxidant free radical scavenger. Scientifically recognized benefits of water include the support of wellness and longevity. And the natural benefits of water are encouraged and enhanced by alkalinity.

The acai berry is an inch-long reddish, purple fruit. It comes from the acai palm tree (Euterpe oleracea), native to Central and South America. A powerful antioxidant and super food with omega fatty acids, dietary fiber and phytosterols, supporting the immune system. Acai contains several substances called anthocyanins and flavonoids.
webmd says “Acai contains several substances called anthocyanins and flavonoids.
The word anthocyanin comes from two Greek words meaning “plant” and “blue.” Anthocyanins are responsible for the red, purple, and blue hues in many fruits, vegetables, and flowers. Foods that are richest in anthocyanins -- such as blueberries, red grapes, red wine, and acai -- are very strongly colored, ranging from deep purple to black. Anthocyanins and flavonoids are powerful antioxidants that help defend the body against life's stressors. They also play a role in the body's cell protection system. Free radicals are harmful byproducts produced by the body. Eating a diet rich in antioxidants may interfere with aging and the disease process by neutralizing free radicals. By lessening the destructive power of free radicals, antioxidants may help reduce the risk of some diseases, such as heart disease and cancer.”
Crêpes Sans Frontières uses products from Acai Roots. Acai Roots products always contain 100% organic Brazilian acai, harvested in the rainforest using sustainable methods.

From the late 1800s to today, LaVazza have been committed to achieving excellence in the production of coffee. Today Lavazza is the symbol of Italian coffee around the world, a global icon representing the authentic Italian experience.

All goods for sale are produced or processed directly at the Lavazza shop: soap, spirits, oil, spices and, of course, coffee. By 1900, Lavazza has six employees and works as a wholesaler outside the customs border. Curiosity and studies in chemistry lead Luigi to learn more about the product that fascinates him most: coffee.
