Top store recommendations from locals

Department Store
$$$
“Two huge buildings and one building is for food and the other is for clothes. High end shop but worth going just to look. The food building is my favorite and there’s 4 floors. Each floor is dedicated to either wine, groceries, kitchen supplies and then furniture. Beautiful place ”

Crêperie

“My favourite Breton creperie. Their aubergine galette is to die for, as are any other of their galettes and crepes. For dessert, a crepe with salted caramel and a ball of vanilla bean ice cream is perfection.”

Cheese Shop

Wine Bar
$$
“Best bar in the World, according to the Gurdian ! A dingy, smoky cellar bar. Walking into Chez Georges is like finding yourself on the set of a Truffaut film. It’s full of effortlessly cool people who don’t seem to be up themselves, which of course makes them seem even cooler. Early evening everyone is huddled round tiny tables drinking red wine out of glass tumblers or squeezed on to sofas. Come closing time the floor is a mass of flailing limbs and nodding heads.”
