Every time I have been to La Crêperie de Hampstead there has been a queue, which must be a good sign. Do not be deterred by the double-digits waiting time — it will all be worth it in the end as you take your first bite into the best crêpes this side of the English Channel.
While waiting, admire how many toppings they can store in such a small space, and do not be surprised at how much Nutella is loaded onto your basic but extremely chocolaty French pancake. Half a jar per person at the La Crêperie de Hampstead it seems. All of this makes a stop after a walk up and over the nearby Hampstead Heath all the more worthwhile and guilt-free. Or come to La Crêperie first, then walk it off over the Heath afterwards.
This is continental street food at its finest and most authentic in London. Eat on-the-go or on the benches along Hampstead High Street but definitely not at the chairs and tables of the neighbouring pub for there seems to be anything but neighbourly love between the two, which seems to be rather awkward given how close and big the queues are.
