Boulangerie Painbar (Nantes)

This new spot is shaking things up for Nante’s night owls: you can buy bread at Painbar until 11pm, providing that there’s any left… In this somewhat crazy bakery, come for a coffee (the beans come from the Brûlerie de la Maine), something to snack on (sandwiches at lunch, hot dishes at night), a drink (natural wine and local beer from La Tête Haute), or why not even dance a bit! On the unfussy shelves, you’ll find all of the following: no fancy viennoiseries or pastries, but crusty, organic bread (natural levain rye) sold by the slice or as a country loaf (€6.20/kg), seeded loaf (€9.50), olive loaf (€11.50) or walnut loaf (€12/kg); an incredible “choco-coco loco” chocolate-coconut short bread (€25/kg); and chocolate, hazelnut and fleur de sel cookies. What’s more, they’re all made with carefully sourced ingredients – the different flours (wheat, rye and buckwheat) come from the Boisvreuil farm in Missillac, and the salt comes from the salt marshes of Batz-sur-Mer. // Kate Bouche 

The hidden gem: Buckwheat, honey and hazelnut financiers (€2).
