    Well finally took a photo of one of my favorite bakeries here and in France; these are a chain of bakeries since 1850 adhering to a simple motto, fresh from the fields of wheat to your table.

    In Auray they are in quaint historical place de la République just before going down on rue du château to Saint Goustan district

    The shops are compact, just for your lovely baguettes and the regional baguette 56 with black wheat but its not black;;;great with those cheeses.

    What to buy: the baguette 56 is wonderful so are the caramel salé cakes and of course your usual pain au chocolat and regular baguette

    What to pay: 1 euro for the Baguette 56, the rest is standard 90 centimes, prices are nice.
