Wander in the city centre

Discover many craftsmen and designers in the city centre. It is an invitation to wander the streets between cultural and historical visits. Here are some of the good addresses to bring back a 100% local souvenir!

Historical centre

Medieval Saint-Brieuc spreads out around the Saint-Etienne cathedral, a true fortress since the 12th century. The market still extends up to the covered market next to the cathedral. It is the place to have a drink or a snack after your market shopping. The nearby lanes are bordered by half-timbered houses. Check out the Le Ribeault house, the oldest of Saint-Brieuc which dates back to the 15th century.

Place du Chai is also a place to have a drink outside and mingle with the locals. It opens on the Résistance square and the Passerelle theatre (national stage) which hides a small Italian style theatre.
Spot more colourful things like the murals of the Just do paint street art festival and the famous Odorico mosaics. If the sea is calling you, head down the Légué harbour for a nice stroll!

Where to have a drink

Our selection of the best tables or patios to have an drink outside.

  • Patios: Both remote from the hustle and bustle of the outside traffic and discree, they are the perfect place for a drink amongst friends! Afterwork tapas at La Cave, a quirky rock atmosphere at the 1701 or old stones and a copper beer tap at La Bergerie.
  • Cocooning: Warm up in winter with a hot chocolate from the Nelson or with the exotic pastries of the Donkey’s Coffee Shop.
  • On the Légué harbour: Enjoy a brunch while facing the boats at the Portland. Take a look at the maritime decor at Les Mouettes.
  • Nocturnal: The place du Chai bars.
  • With a snack in the city centre: The old-timey Au Père Moustache pub which faces the marketplace. Enjoy an ice cream at La Cigale. Stop at the covered market with the welcoming Café 16.

Where to eat during a stroll downtown?

Saint-Brieuc is the gourmet destination in Brittany. We like local produce found on our markets where you can often spot restaurant chefs who are doing their groceries.
