Where in Quimperlé can you live off love, water, bread and salted butter? At this adorable épicerie with a massive windowed facade, where Basile Hémidy keeps the Finistère department satiated: scallop rillettes from La Conserverie Kerbriant, seaweed tartare harvested by hand by Begood Alg, salted caramel from Kara’mo…. Delicious, local fare, plus options from elsewhere (like the saucisson from Montalet in the Tarn department), and a stunning selection of natural wines and hard ciders, which you can grab between two breaths of fresh sea air. The house also offers up spirits, plus a handful of rare graphic novels, cookbooks and zines. // Chip Pfeiffer
The hidden gem: Frais Réel, a dry hard cider from La Cidrerie de l’Apothicaire (€8 a bottle), which pairs beautifully with oysters.
