A new trendy place for this summer in Rennes. Last December, News Rennes had already visited the rooftop terrace of this young address in Rennes: Breton. Despite the cold and the clouds that occupied the sky at that time, the rooftop still under construction already showed its full potential.

Six months later, all the elements are now in place for settle there : the decoration is in place, the armchairs are laid out and the summer heat begins to be felt. Are we taking you with us?

On the roof of the old house of Odorico

To get there, you must first climb the spiral staircase and then walk along the mosaic walls of the former home of the Rennes artist Isidore Odorico. Once past the 1st floor, there are only a few more steps to climb to reach the roof terrace of the establishment.

On the spot, about thirty tables are arranged at the four corners of the space, with benches and comfortable armchairs. The menu of the restaurant-tea room offers savory pancakes, sweet crepes, pastries, homemade ice cream, cocktails or hot and cold drinks.

The only real rooftop in Rennes

A rooftop is a roof terrace that is entirely in the open air. In Rennes, the large terrace of the cocktail bar Le Mabilay also allows you to have a drink in height… but it is not on the roof of the building! There is indeed a rooftop at Mabilay but it is not accessible to the public.
In 2023, a new raised terrace with a large bay window should open at Les Lices within the future Mama Shelter Hotel. But again, it’s not a rooftop…!

Rooftop Yoga sessions

In addition to tasting a crepe or one coffeeit is also possible to participate in a yoga session, every Wednesday morning, on the roof terrace of Bretone.

It is necessary to book with Husband Yoga. A homemade pastry accompanied by a drink are then offered to the participants. Sport or drink in the sun, everyone will find a reason to visit this rooftop in Rennes!
