Nantes cake is the local speciality when it comes to cakes in Nantes... and although I'm from Nantes, Nantes cake was a source of mystery for quite some time. My grandmother Hélène loved preparing this cake for large family gatherings, but as she used to say so often: "it's a sweet treat for grown-ups!"

In the heart of the vibrant and picturesque city of Nantes lies a curious darkened café, Café Cult’, where you can enjoy performances of live acoustic music in the company of the arty local community and student crowd. You’ll be charmed as soon as you walk in by the local artefacts, the friendliness of the staff, and the atmosphere of seclusion and romance emanating from the table candles. The food at Café Cult’ is delicious and varied – lunch in particular is a bargain. Or you can sip good French wine while admiring one of the regular art exhibitions.
