Brasserie Excelsior Nancy France Breakfast in an Art Nouveau restaurant

ブラッスリー・エクセルシオール・ナンシー Nancy

When you come to Nancy, your first stop should be BRASSERIE EXCELSIOR NANCY.

The Art Nouveau building and interior are still preserved today and are very rare in France.

The name ‘brasserie’ means that there is a wide variety on the menu, and it is open until late at night, but what is particularly recommended is the breakfast menu.

You can choose your breakfast from a selection of three courses, depending on the quantity, so it is not a particular problem if you do not understand French.

A breakfast surrounded by art nouveau works of art is an absolutely unique and wonderful experience.

A stop here at the beginning of your sightseeing trip will motivate you and will be a great start to your day.

Now let me introduce you to some of them.

1911 Opened by Brasseur (brewer) Louis Moreau.

With its Art Nouveau exterior and interior decorated with works by Nancy School artists and sculptors, the shop has earned a reputation in France as a shop that brings French traditions to the present day.


Exterior view of Brasserie Excelsior Nancy.

The shop, located on the corner of Rue Mazagran and Rue Henri-Poincaré, has a more relaxed atmosphere than one might expect when viewed from a distance.

The building, built by Lucien Weissemburger and Alexandre Mienville, may be better seen up close.

Entrance to Brasserie Excelsior Nancy.

When approaching the shop, there was an atmospheric entrance on the corner, so we tried to enter from here, but unfortunately this was closed.

(may be due to construction work etc.).

The restaurant was very empty as it was a little off breakfast time.

Nevertheless, a few locals were present.

Exterior: ★★★★☆

Interior: ★★★★★


Store clerk : ★★★★☆

Ease of purchase: ★★★★☆

Location: ★★★★★

Taste is generally average.

However, the mini baguettes were very tasty.

The exterior of the building is Art Nouveau, but it looks simpler than I had imagined.

The interior is unquestionable.

It is a very enjoyable space because everything I see is of interest to me.

The price seems reasonable.

Staff were not particularly friendly, but they were satisfactory.

Garçon was French-only but very pleasant.

Ease of ordering, but this time it was only breakfast, so there were no problems with the French language.

The location could not be more perfect and convenient as it is visible from Nancy train station.

It is still worth a visit as the interior is excellent.

The restaurant is spacious, so it was no problem to stay longer!

However, the time of year we visited was winter, and it was somewhat cold inside the restaurant.

The Art Nouveau atmosphere can be enjoyed to the full, making it an unmissable spot for a visit to Nancy.

Thank you again for reading to the end of this issue.
