Crêperies

Ty Skorn : Excellent crepes in a friendly local setting. Directly on the port of Cancale, easy to reach. Marianne, the owner, is really friendly.
Crêperie du port : Downtown Cancale. Very close to house. Good crêpes, good value for money.

Restaurants

You are spoilt for choice by the number of excellent restaurants in Cancale.

"A contre courant" : Very good food, the restaurant is always full (book ahead). The atmosphere is alright though it can be a bit "speed" sometimes.

"Le Coquillage" : Super-chef Olivier Roellinger’s sumptuous restaurant is housed in the impressive Château Richeux, 4km south of Cancale. Roellinger’s creations have earned him three Michelin stars (though he renounced them in 2008), and the food takes in the culinary highlights of Brittany and Normandy, all beautifully cooked and imaginatively served. Roellinger's son - Hugo - took over from his father in 2014 to focus on fish, vegetables and seaweed.
Book well ahead.

"L'Huitrière" : Interesting concept for oyster lovers. Fresh products of high quality, oysters opened in front of you. On the other hand not much choice of other dishes for those who are not into oysters. For desserts, good news, it's homemade.

Food to Go

Pizzas (for there or to go) : «Au Jardin du bourg» near the church
Pizzas to go : L'ilot Pizza from thursdays to sundays
