Being a frequent visitor of Paris and a lover for crepes, I have come up with the best 3 creperies in Paris. From Montparnasse to the Trocadero, all these places are a must-try for crepe lovers!

1. Creperie Josselin, Montparnasse

Where: Rue de Montparnasse

I actually stumbled upon this place last year because I was staying at the hotel right across the shop, so I thank the Crepe Gods for leading me here by accident.
This is a personal favorite for not only me, but also to many locals and tourists alike. Situated just off the lively Boulevard du Montparnasse, Josselin serves a variety of traditional French crepes at reasonable prices. Both their savory and sweet crepes are superb!
You will find many more creperies on this particular street, but this is by far the best.

2. Cafe Saint Placide, Montparnasse

Where: Rue de Rennes

Once again an accidental find--I first tried the crepes from the window stall of the Cafe Saint Placide as I was waiting for a friend to finish French courses on a nearby street.
If you decide to visit this cafe, simply buy crepes from the window stall outside of the cafe (which is what I did).
The lines can be a bit long, proving how popular they are--especially with the local Parisians--but they are well worth the wait. This is arguably the best crepes I have tried that are bought from a stall (as opposed to dine-in creperies), because they serve traditional French crepes as opposed to the more "tourist" crepes. Since the crepes are served at a stall, the price is the same as most other crepe stalls, but the taste is worth much more.

3. Trocadero

Where: The first crepe stall on the left once exiting the Trocadero metro station.

I have tried all (and I mean ALL) the crepe stalls around the Trocadero area.
As a popular tourist destination, all the crepe stalls serve a somewhat less traditional and more "toursit" version of French crepes. However, the crepes served in this particular stall are the biggest and taste the best in comparison to the other stalls.
Although the taste of these crepes might be far from the crepes served at the two places above, the view of the nearby Eiffel Tower while eating these bumps this crepe stall to the top 3.

I remember having Crepes Suzettes at a restaurant in France - utterly delicious!
