3 Unmissable Normandy Brunch Spots

Published on May 3, 2019 by Chris Robinson

If you're looking for Normandy brunch spot, then read on. These three places were featured in a Côté Manche article this week.

Normandy brunch spot

Brunch is becoming more popular here in Normandy but isn't as readily available as in the USA or the UK. Many restaurants in France open at lunchtime from 12 - 2pm and then again at 7pm. The concept of an early breakfast or late lunch is still relatively uncommon.

However, these three places in Granville and St-Lô are ahead of the game.

La Bonne Aventure in Granville

A new tea room opened in Granville in mid April in the grounds of the Christian Dior museum. The gardens and the Dior museum provide a beautiful setting. Brunch is served on a Sunday and can be either sweet or savoury depending on what takes your fancy.

La Bonne Aventure, jardin Dior, 1, rue d’Estouteville. Open 7 days a week. InApril and May from 9am to 7.30pm. From June to August it's open from 9am to 8.30pm. Their website is here.

Le Choix de la Reine in Saint-Lô

This retro tea room is famous for sweets concoctions such a millionaires shortbread, scones, tiramisu and brownies. This Normandy brunch spot has been open for around 18 months. It also operates as a restaurant at lunchtime. A handful of tables are often full as diners listen to jazz while enjoying the home-made food. There's also an outdoor pavement seating area. Brunch is served here every Saturday.

Le Choix de la Reine, 25, rue du Neufbourg. Open from Tuesday to Saturday. You can call 02 50 48 98 60 to make a reservation. To check out the daily specials have a look at their Facebook page by searching for @lechoixdelareine.

Meet The Author
Until 2014 I worked in central London as a marketeer for a membership organization. Years of watching property renovation programmes on TV sparked a dream to do this in France having studied French and worked there previously. I left my job and completed the sale of my house on the same day (a stroke of luck rather than good planning) and headed off to Normandy. I undertook a barn renovation project managing the artisans’ workload. The result is a 3 bedroom gite which I now market all year providing me with endless opportunities to increase my skills and knowledge.
