Creperie Titia (Dartmouth)

Creperie Titia is a casual, lovely little place in Dartmouth to stop by for – you guessed it – sweet and savoury crepes on a sunny afternoon in Dartmouth, Devon.

Dartmouth, Devon has just made its way to one of my favourite places in the UK. It is a charming coastal town all the way down South, a good 5 hour train ride from York (and a little under 3 hours from London Paddington station!)
