Grain de Vanille

Pâtisserie / Chocolate / Ice Cream / Teahouse

Together, Olivier Roellinger and Yannick Gautier have created Grain de Vanille®, a temple to sweet treats located in the upper part of Cancale. With his wife Fernanda and his crew, Yannick hand-crafts and cooks a variety of delicacies daily.

Grain de Vanille® is also a meeting place: a few tables, a fireplace, a small sunny terrace, some books on the local area and its adventurers. A place to go for a cup of tea, a hot chocolate or simply a good coffee, followed by some small pastries and cream puffs fresh out of the oven, or a velvety ice cream. A cosy, warm, vanilla-scented haven.

Cakes and desserts are also available on special order for you to enjoy at home.
