The Shelter is one of the quirkier environments in which to dine in Nantes. Where else hangs a Foosball table on the wall? The Shelter’s eclectic decoration borders on the ostentatious but its food is anything but. For brunch they serve scrambled eggs, bacon, a smoked salmon club sandwich, country terrine, and a croque monsieur (a baked or fried sandwich made with Gruyére cheese, lean ham, and béchamel sauce). This is in addition to the host of baked goods and spreads on offer. A choice of dessert is also provided: cottage cheese with red fruit coulis, chocolate mousse, or fruit tartare.

Vue du Monde’s brunch menu contains a number of options, like the “BSF”, which is a bagel with smoked salmon, cream cheese, red onion, curried tartar sauce, and fried potatoes. With the “Big Ben” customers get a choice of eggs, bacon, sausages, or smoked salmon to accompany their Provencal tomato, fried potatoes, baked beans, cheese, fruit skewers, waffle, and toast. The truly ravenous can upgrade their “Big Ben” to a “Big DaDa”, which adds a helping of eggs Benedict and half a toasted sandwich.
