    Cafe Albertine

    A lovely spot for breakfast, Cafe Albertine is bright as a new pin and a relaxing environment for a pick-me-up coffee or a snack. There are friendly smiles from the waiting staff, while kids' books lie scattered on shelves in the corner and there are high chairs if you've a tot in tow.

    La Réserve

    What's so surprising about this contemporary bistro is how unfazed it is by its great success: it's usually full every night, the atmosphere is congenial, waiting staff look after guests and the prices are good value for Rennes. There's also a kids' menu for €13.

    Le Baron Rouge

    This sleek restaurant has as much substance as style, serving cuisine with a modern twist on French traditional recipes. There's a good selection of predominantly meat dishes – the tartare is recommended.

    La Saint-Georges

    Where most crêperies play on the twee old-Breton style, this one takes a totally eccentric approach – with its green-and-gold furnishings and luxurious chairs, this place looks more like a glam Ibizan chill-out club. It's certainly eye-catching and the crêpes themselves are creative, well presented and loaded with flavour.

    Boulangerie Hoche

    Quite a picture along rue Hoche, this blue-tiled boulangerie is a frightfully good-looking stop for a coffee, an eclair, a religieuse or one of their lovely tarte aux framboises (raspberry tart) or tarte au chocolat, as well as sandwiches and other snacks.

    Deiz Mat Burger

    This burger bar does a range of 15 different burgers, as well as panini, wraps and salads. The white-tile table decor isn't anything to get worked up about, but the food's good, there are vegetarian choices and their hours are long.
