Inside the famous mosaicist Odorico’s old home, Jean-Louis Serres (Le Hibou, La Piste, La Cavale) has opened up Bretone (pronounced brétoné, in an Italian accent, a reference to the artist’s roots). Thanks to a sublime renovation, you’ll discover a cozy interior (mosaic tile floors, marble tables and ceramics pots), a very pastel patio (light green zellige tiles, a flourishing jasmine plant) and a rooftop for Gaelic delights. What will you find available à la carte? Buckwheat galettes made with locally milled flour, which will drive you wild: a competition-worthy complète (ham, an egg, Emmental cheese); an ultra-crispy one with grilled Guémené andouille, caramelized onions and wholegrain mustard; or the galette of the day featuring haddock, sautéed carrots, a runny egg, preserved lemon and pickles. Plus sweet crepes for a kiss goodbye: an extremely classic butter sugar crepe, or ones with homemade salted caramel or artisan jam. Our final tip: Bretone also serves snacks (sweet crepes and homemade pastries). // Sidonie Blethida 

FEELING THIRSTY? Brittany in all of its splendor: hoppy IPA cider from Ti-Lõ (€5.50 for 330 ml), cider from Éric Bordelet (€18 a bottle), or even pear cider from the Ferme de l’Yonnière (€16 a bottle). 
PRICE: Galettes €3-15, crepes €3.20 to €8.50, pastries €2 to €5.50.
