Are pancakes something you can’t miss in your brunch ? Don’t forget to try them at La petite production. There you will find the best pancakes with pear and maple syrup that you ever had in your life perfectly melt-in-your-mouth. The store is aesthetic with an industrial interior, it’s maybe a little bit small but the bricks wall give the place a real charming character.
