Our Story

Yann Bris, owner and chef, originally from Brittany in France, more precisely from the city of Paimpol, a small fishing port in the Cotes d'Armor, settled in Quebec in 2005. After earning his degree in hotel and restaurant management, he worked for the Accor Group as director of hotel-restaurant in the southwest of France, a bastion of French gastronomy. He opened his first crêperie in Fort Lauderdale, on the coast of Florida, in the United States. This success and some leisure travel to the beautiful city of Montreal, prompted him to return and try the Quebec experience. He opened a decoration boutique in downtown Montreal, on Amherst Street, which he calls Karactère with a "K". Despite the success of this enterprise, he misses restauration. He decides to close the shop and starts a project that is closer to his love of gastronomy by opening a crêperie in the now trendy district known as Griffintown. He sets his sights on a former hairdressing studio that he completely transforms to create Spanel, the Breton word for "spatula" Spatula for turning pancakes. Spanel's philosophy is based on a cuisine made exclusively with fresh, quality products. Thanks to the proximity of the Atwater Market, Yann can fulfill his wish to serve his customers crepes and gourmet dishes. Spanel is also committed to offering its customers a warm and friendly atmosphere. The choice of a shady terrace, surrounded by trees and equipped with heaters, allows them to make the most of outdoor dining, from the first days of summer until the arrival of winter. The chef hopes you'll enjoy discovering Spanel and come back often to spend pleasant moments.

Excellentes crêpes bretonnes, qui me font penser aux meilleures que j'ai dégustées à Montparnasse à Paris. La pâte est simplement parfaite. Avec un service aimable en plus; le chef, un Breton d'origine (évidemment) est fort sympathique. Une des bonnes adresses du coin. Ne manquez pas le brunch du dimanche, très couru dans le quartier.

Great place to eat, good crepes. Please avoid if you have celiac disease. I have gone twice & both times have ended up EXTREMELY ill. The first time they served me a crepe with a wafer in it (luckily I noticed & spat it out) & the second was during a busy time. Something somewhere doesn't get cleaned properly. Highly recommended, but not if you have an allergy or celiac disease. To the chef - please understand the serious impact on those with celiac. Not having a 100% dedicated area for us causes extreme sickness, not for hours but for a week. Rushing our order or not taking time to properly clean the area has caused me a week of pain missing both school & work. I wish you would understand that my years of hard work of eating gluten free was destroyed by your one meal. Just 1/2 a tablespoon of gluten completely destroys the small intestines causing gastric cancer & infertility. I beg you to put a sign in your menu that celiacs should not eat there. It will take 6 months for my intestines to heal.

Ok il y a longtemps que j'y suis allé, mais je me souviens très bien du résultat coûteux & rien là. J'ai lu un article récemment disant que c'est les "Meilleures" crêpes en ville..... pas qu'un peu prétentieux... J'ai pris 3 crêpes pour emporter... crêpes bonnes avec une garniture goûteuse mais quasi inexistante. La crêpe dessert au citron ....déception.. 1 simple crêpe avec un sirop citron :( 45 minutes d'attente juste moi comme cliente ce soir là... bref Idéal pour petits appétits qui ont bien de l'argent a dépenser. Je n'y suis jamais retourné. Depuis plusieurs amis y sont allés chacuns leurs opinions & ça reste moyen dans l'ensemble.

Je n'en suis pas à ma première visite & ce ne sera pas ma dernière! J'ai adopté ce resto & je prends plaisir à le faire découvrir! Au menu: crêpes! Minces, croustillantes... miam! Jusqu'à maintenant, j'ai toujours pris la crêpe brunch: 15$, café inclus. & du bon café :-) Le service est attentionné & courtois. L'endroit est divisé en deux, ce qui en fait un endroit pas trop bruyant. L'été, il y a une petite terrasse dans la cour arrière. Le menu est le même du matin au soir mais il y a toujours une crêpe du moment. C'est aussi sans gluten; avis aux intéressés! Bonne découverte!

Nous sommes allés hier soir à cette sympathique crêperie dans Griffin Town, ce restaurant est très coquet, propre, la nourriture est excellente & fraiche; le service a été impeccable. Les soupes à l'oignon étaient en dehors de l'ordinaire, très goûteuses, en plat principal: j'avais choisi la crêpe repas "Griffin Town" au jambon à l'os, pommes caramélisées & fromage cheddar & tous les ingrédients étaient d'une fraîcheur inégalée. Mon conjoint lui avait choisi la crêpe "Le Vieux" jambon à l'os, fromage à raclette & pommes de terre & cette crêpe était aussi très bonne, il y a un large choix de crêpes pour tous les goûts. Le prix de la bouteille de vin était aussi très abordable environ 30,00$ pour un sauvignon rouge Beringer. N'hésitez pas à essayer ce resto, vous ne serez pas déçus.
