This is simply the prettiest cafe I've ever visited; directly overlooking the beautiful harbour of Sainte Marine in Finistere, Brittany, with a view of Benodet across the Odet river. The food is fresh, beautifully cooked and served by charming staff.

Our 2nd visit for cake and coffee while cycling around Benodet and Ile-Tidy. Very pleasant stopover cafe. Waited a while to be served asked for milk and it turned up as we were leaving.

Sunday lunch, mid-September. Sun shining view across to Benodet superb. Had a couple of glasses of white wine and a scrumptious poulet club sandwich. Lovely staff.

Definitely great location. Lovely view too. Service was good. Food was average. I took a sallad which was not particularly tasty. Chicken brochette , house burger and carpaccio looked yummy.
