Picture 1 Great ideas for eating out

What shall we eat today? Who’s going to set the table? Whose turn is it to do the washing-up?  Give yourself a bit of time off during the holidays and escape from the daily grind by going to eat out with the family. Restaurant owners in Brittany have thought up children’s menus, baby kits and bright ideas to make it fun. So come on and enjoy your family meal in peace!

In Brittany every day is Pancake day!

With galettes (savoury buckwheat pancakes) and pancakes, every meal is like a celebration. Get to know the “complete” (egg, ham, cheese) that all children love, or let yourself go with the famous “beurre-sucre  (butter and sugar)” pancake. If you’d like to be a little more adventurous, give into the temptation of agalettewith chitterling sausage or a pancake with salted butter caramel. These culinary experiences are simple but always very tasty to try when you go out for the day with the family.
