Brest for the seaman in you and a lot more for us

We have been here and kept good memories, even visited in Christmas time, see those threads here just type Brest for search. We came back to Brest in the Finistére breton today, just back from it. It was my oldest birthday, 23 years old wow, time does fly by and we are getting better ::) hehehe not old just like a good wine, better lol!

We rode the 166 kms from our home and made in about 2 hrs, by car on the N165 all the way and went into the city to park underground at the Place de la Liberté, right in the thick of things.  Tourist office here ,http://www.brest-metropole-tourisme.fr/

We had a wonderful experience in a restaurant here and my son felt like he wanted to celebrate his birthday there. But first , we got there earlier to walk and shop ::)

There is a nice shopping center up rue de Siam  and onwards to rue Jean Jaurés along the tramway tracks with bilevels of loaded nice stores and the Anchor across the street link by an overpass hall is the Au Printemps dept store of Paris fame. However, we came here for the FNAC stores for the boys ….and to our pleasant surprise the new Burger King has open just next to it !!! and just a bit before another shopping center to boot loaded shopping in one stop.

The centre commercial Espace Jaurés, http://www.fnac.com/Brest/Fnac-Brest/cl112/w-4

And the new Burger King Brest not even yet in their webpage open Mondays to Saturdays from 9h30/10h00 to 19h30. next to the above shopping center at Espace Jaurès – Niveau 2 (level 2), 65 Rue Jean Jaurès, but you can come in off the street as well.

and the centre commercial Coat Ar Gueven, http://www.coatargueven.com/

We did shop at our favorite Armand Thiery store for men, and grab some more gifts, http://www.armandthiery.fr/fr/magasins.cfm  ,and then madame got a nice Hexagona bag at the Pavillon de la Maroquinerie at 44 rue de Siam ;this is a Brest shoppers site and some info on the store, very nice brands and good prices here, ours was 50% off ::) http://www.vitrines-brest-centre.fr/fr/vos-commerces/maroquineries/256-pavillon-de-la-maroquinerie

The boys went on to Dock Games on rue de Siam  ,http://www.dockgames.com/index.php?cp=29&rubrique=enseigne  and the Lacoste store as well ; http://stores.lacoste.com/?lang=fr&_ga=1.41034145.2029157977.1423227951#879  all on the same street and close by, a shopper’s paradise.

And oh well, we needed to eat, oh yes, that is what we came here to do , my oldest 23 birthday and he been such a humble guy pick the old Au Bureau pub restaurant at 10 rue de Siam, and as so often happened when visiting and not coming back soon even if we live close ….. the restaurant had change ownership, now call the Rest Au Pub; however, pretty much same menu ambiance, and friendly service. WE got the 9 scoops of ice cream dish back upon request!!! and of course he had his Triple burger with a nice bottle of Saumur Champigny, red  2013 Les Longes (in memory of the great school of cavarly Cadre Noir of Saumur).

This is a franchise chain, we have followed in Nantes and Lannion, and Brest. The Brest property went out of the franchise and are now independant. The food, service, decor, and location stay the same, a wonderful place, recommended. No webpage for the new name yet , just 10 rue de Siam, 29000, Brest tel +33 (0) 2 98 43 55 53. just up the harbor and the tour Tanguy and up the castle left and by the bridge of Recouvrance take right into rue de Siam cant missed it.

We keep the personal photos but you get an idea. Enjoy the week, and I enjoy my day off for the celebration. Cheers

Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest  Brest
