In the 16th century, Catherine de’ Medici amazed her subjects with an iconic pastry: the choux. Near the Place Royale, in this bright tea room, Sébastien Grimaud takes his turn at seducing the people of Nantes with this timeless delicacy. Showing off his masterful technique, he offers both sweet and savoury versions. The lunch menu, with its choice of gougères, is a delight for small appetites as well as small budgets.
