This is of course subjective but if you're into good coffee find somewhere else. I like Italian coffee and was very disappointed in the cappuccino. The milk froth was thin and poor and the coffee was really harsh tasting and watery. Too bad because the food is really great!

We only found out later that Grain de Vanille is part of Olivier Roellinger's food empire, but we were not surprised. This was an ideal stopping spot on a Thursday afternoon drive back to St-Malo from Mont St-Michel and a good spot from which to explore upper Cancale a bit. Delicious pastries and espresso drinks!

Grain de vanille is off the tourist trail in Cancale but is worth the trip just to have the Millefeuille. It's the best I've ever eaten and my family completely agree. It was still crispy a a few hours after purchase and the filling completely delicious - wished we ordered one each, instead of sharing. So good, that we came back the next day to have some more, but it was unfortunately closed Tuesday and Wednesday.
