Party Earth Manouche Review

The Scene

Manouche in Berlin’s Kreuzberg is a super-popular French crêperie with amazing savory & sweet crêpes. Grab a bit of French goodness in Berlin with Party Earth.

Asking Parisian owner Emmanuel Girondin why he opened Manouche back in 2008 elicits a simple answer: “Berlin needed a crêperie.”

Apparently he was right, because since then French expats, budget-conscious families, and hip young Berliners have all been crowding in to enjoy one of his large variety of original crêpes.

The spare outdoor patio is full most days with area professionals lunching on savory galettes or kicking their diet in the pants with a Bella Ciao lathered in chocolate – or whatever other delectable creation Girondin has come up with – while on rainy afternoons the three small rooms inside provide a cozy environment to listen to soft jazz and sip coffee.

The décor has a distinct French flea market feel, replete with old leather sofas, antique brass candelabras, chipped wooden furniture, and small tables that just might still smell of the ever-popular Pomme D’Adam, a decadent crêpe smothered in caramelized apple, cinnamon, ice cream, and mangos.

In the evenings the venue takes on more of a bar vibe as families clear out, the electronic music goes on, and a youthful alternative crowd gathers to enjoy a few long drinks, a meal, and some French liqueurs.

The revelry continues into Sunday, too, when musicians gather for occasional jazz sessions.

Whether young or old, hungry or thirsty, the satisfied customers in Kreuzberg all seem to agree: while one can take the man out of Paris, they hope no one will take the man’s Manouche out of Berlin.

Tip from Emma:

Manouche is popular, so hour-plus wait times are the norm by early evening most nights. Order a signature Lazy Cocktail and heed its advice. You will not be disappointed with the flavor orgasm that will accompany any crêpe you’ve ordered.

  • Crowd

    French expats, budgeted college kids, hipsters, older couples, musicians, creative types, jazz lovers, and young families. All ages during the day, 20s to mid-30s at night.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Sunday jazz sessions feature impromptu jams, though like most of Manouche’s schedule, times/days can vary. Jazz, rock, blues, and funk on the stereo during the day, transitioning to electronic music at night.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    More than twenty original crêpe dishes, from savory to sweet and diet-friendly to gut-busting. Patio.

  • Prices

    Crêpes/galettes €3+, salads €5+. Beer €2+, wine €4+, long drinks €3+, spirits €2+, coffee/tea €2+.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Right when they open to avoid the wait, Friday and Saturday nights for the biggest crowd of young locals, or Sundays for the live jazz.
