La Chicorée

Sandwiches in Nantes

With a summertime pavement terrace basking in the sun and an enchanting interior bursting with antique curiosities, this gourmet sandwich shop is a secret locals would probably rather not share. It is the later-in-life creation of the fabulous Anne and Carole, with long careers in charcuterie and communications already under their belt.

They make creatively stuffed baguette sandwiches to order, and the €8 lunch deal includes fantastic homemade soup or dessert as well. If you've never savoured a Real McCoy, traditional French financier (succulent, bite-sized almond cake), this is the address.
