In the blink of an eye

1. A tasty brunch

L’Art aux Heures à Trébeurden

How about a little weekend away on the Pink Granite Coast? At the heart of Trébeurden, try the brunch at L’Art aux Heures. The mood? Art Deco, vegetal and vintage. The food? Fresh, home-made, and organic wherever possible. Finely diced pineapple, kohlrabi tzatziki and Granny Smith apples accompany classics such as smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and pastries. Everything is delicate and delicious. Simple and creative. Thoughtful and original. It’s a real treat!

2. Brunch on every floor

La Coloc’ à Brest (29)

Where shall we sit? In the dressing room or the bathroom? At La Coloc’, the décor takes the form of the rooms of a house. Originality guaranteed! Or perhaps you would prefer to sit opposite the Marina and its magnificent view of Brest bay. Here you’ll find all the ingredients for a perfect home-made brunch. For those with a sweet tooth: fresh orange juice, Canadian-style pancakes, muesli and bakery products accompanied with as much hot chocolate as you like. And for those who prefer savoury food, you can personalise your plate with organic eggs (scrambled, fried), bacon or salmon, cream cheese or guacamole. A little cheese and a mixed salad and your plate is ready. Bon appétit!

3. The place to brunch

Les Grands Gamins à Rennes (35)

Les Grands Gamins in the trendy Mail district have been serving brunch in the Breton capital since 2016. The original, sweet and savoury brunch is served up on Saturdays and Sundays in a sharing format. It changes every month according to the chef’s inspiration and seasonal fruit and vegetables. Meat, fish or veggie, everything is covered! Delicious pastries are made on-site: tarts, cheesecakes, cookies with the flavour of the moment, and revisited classic recipes. Les Grands Gamins is also a venue for afternoon tea, afterwork or a concert. On fine days, you can sit outside on wooden tables in the shade of the trees. And why not finish your meal with a game of Breton Palet?

The ground-floor tea room is ideal for enjoying the unique atmosphere of the place and dining all day long. On Sunday and holidays, you can enjoy the buffet brunch consisting of 100% fresh and home-made products, such as a variety of salads, sweet and savoury verrines, smoked salmon, faisselle cheese and Bordier butter, as well as pastries from Grain de Vanille (by Olivier Roellinger).
