Tea room, restaurant and delicatessen all rolled into one, Les Enfants Gat’thés occupies a magnificent building from the 16th and 19th centuries that simply oozes history. This throwback to the schoolrooms of yesteryear offers a warm atmosphere, with its schist stones, limestone walls, beams and comfortable furniture. Everything has been designed for your utmost enjoyment.
 

The Restaurant & Tea Room
 


In a warm and convivial ambiance that calls to mind a 1950s schoolroom, take a seat under the one hundred year old beams and enjoy a relaxing meal or drink.    With different teapots for different teas, egg timers to guarantee the perfect infusion, and white and brown cane sugar, our friendly service is rounded off with carefully considered finishing touches.

Our tea room menu features 80 teas, 22 organic tisanes, 6 organic coffees, and a range of hot chocolates. Or try one of Caroline's delicacies, like Macha green tea friands, clafoutis with fruits of the season, cannelés, macaroons, rhubarb tart, tarte Alsace and tarte Tatin. Breton biscuits made by Vénètes are also available.
