Gourmet specialties

Our bay is a gourmet one and favours local produce. Try the handmade Brieuc biscuits made locally in Yffiniac. Their trademark biscuit is the buckwheat shortbread, born, the legend has it, from the mistake of an employee who used the wrong kind of flour. The result was so delicious that they decided to commercialise it. The Brieuc biscuit factory also make delicious caramels and jams.
Do not forget to snack on a galette-saucisse when on a market. It is a delicious Breton sausage rolled into the famous local buckwheat pancake. The galette-saucisse is considered to be the Breton hot dog.

Paintbrushes and colours

They are used for art and cosmetic uses. If you need colours, the Sennelier workshops produces all the hues you might need.

Working with the sea

The sea is never far in the Saint-Brieuc bay. The history of the Légué harbour, the Rohannec'h villa and the Rosengart factory testify of this industrial and economical past.

Closer to the sea, at low tide the nature reserve uncovers mussel farms that you can tour on specific periods.
