Opened in 1895, La Cigale is a joyful example of Art Nouveau. A never-ending display of ornaments, associating painted wood and ceramic in a variety of blue tones.
Sought out for its sumptuous and protected heritage interior, this brasserie was once the headquarters for the Surrealists, and it still never disappoints.

Sought out for its sumptuous and protected heritage interior, this brasserie was once the headquarters for the Surrealists, and it still never disappoints. You’ll want to go for the 6 varieties of oysters, its seafood platters, its “Muscadothèque” and all the classics: magret (sliced duck breast), tartare, prime rib steak, etc.), served (early and) till late in the evening. But it’s also open for breakfast – homemade viennoiseries, crème caramel au beurre salé de Guérande (salt butter caramel custard), crémet Nantais with seasonal fruit – and there are the new “chic et choc” lunchtime prix-fixe menus.
