Wild Restaurant in Saint-Cast in Brittany

Wild

Open in the afternoons from All Saints' Day weekends to the February holidays, the Sauvage restaurant in Saint-Cast invites you to a moment of relaxation by its fireplace. Immerse yourself in a book and enjoy a Tchaï Latté, a Latte Macchiato with salted butter caramel, or for the more daring, a Mezcachoc, hot chocolate with mezcal. For those who are cold, the Druid's Grog will warm you up!

Emma's Teas

This house with garden in Saint-Cast is none other than… a tea room! In front of their beautiful heart-warming fireplace, you will taste pastries and teas from around the world. This intimate place will offer you a great trip! We love the “so British” scones, the pan-fried far with salted butter caramel, without forgetting the carrot cake..

Tea Room - Les Bonheurs d’Éléonore
Christmas in Dinan

The Happiness of Éléonore

Both a boutique and a tea room, it is a great address for those looking for a warm atmosphere, where it is good to get together. A few tables, deliberately mismatched armchairs, an open kitchen, exposed beams and “English” decoration. Everything is there, even the (fake) fireplace! Every year, at Christmas time, the tea room is transformed into a magical place lit up with Christmas decorations. Do not miss !
