The biscuit factory is the last place in town where you can watch it being made, rolled out on a tilted rectangular tray called a “bécuwe”. The boutique, ideally situated next to the Musée de la Faïence and the famous Henriot pottery, has its own laboratory. Here, the pastry-makers make traditional recipes every day: gâteau breton, far breton and a delicious Kouign-amann made with extra-fresh churned butter. The boutique is also very well stocked in drinks, sweets, preserves, toffees, traditional bows and other holiday souvenirs.
