The Back to the 60’s restaurant and more of Rennes !!!

The nostalgia of all things American took to read up on the story of this restaurant several years back ; therefore we went to check it out, it was an instant hit with the family and my dear late wife Martine love it, We have been back several times afterward, Let me tell you about the Back to the 60’s restaurant and the mountain dews of Rennes !


The first time we came in on market day, but were able to find street parking for the day for two euros at rue Legraveren off rue St Malo. We had réservations at Back to the 60’s, an American diner style resto full of American icons and mountain dew sodas, cheesecakes, milkshakes, and big burgers. A smoothie, mojito mangue,club sandwiches, coffees, and great 60’s music background, a very efficient friendly staffs and loaded with locals families and students from nearby Universities. It was a wonderful time and glad repeated several times afterward even after her passing for memories of always. Above pic my boys going in !


The Back to the 60’s resto is located at  5 bis, Rue Saint-Malo, a very popular youth/university student hang out in Rennes. Near off of it you have the Rue Saint Michel, or popularly called the Rue du soif, or street of thirst, as it is loaded with bars, restos and big university crowds. From the 60’s deco, and music from the period from Elvis Presley to Buddy Holly, Rick Valens, and Chubby Checker, wow, and the food American style with American products. We even brought home some mountain dew as take out are allowed, great place. We have been coming here since 2013 !!


In Rennes, Back to the 60’s, it’s almost an institution. It is strongly recommended to do reservation because of the affluence recorded at each service. A real American dinner, which has attracted crowds for many years now. Distinguishing itself from the wealth of bistros and creperies Back to the 60’s restaurant focuses on bringing back American cuisine to the heart of Rennes. The restaurant is a favorite among students, locals and tourist alike.


Back to the 60’s immerses you in the 1960’s. To you retro sensations with long live red sky seats, black and white tiled floor, and a good old 60s rock in the background. Enter a real diner or rather an American restaurant because here they serve you at the table. The soda map is great because  we can have Dr. Pepper and Mountain Dew, as well as many milkshakes!  And not to leave out the famous Cheesecake this time with strawberry and rhubard! An American Diner as we like them!


It must be said that everything lends themselves: the servers are nice, although a little stressed in times of rush. And at the planning level, Back to the 60’s has combined choice and quality. For most burgers, you can opt for a steak of beef, chicken or soy. Some are quite simple like the Barbecue and Bacon, others more exotic like Hawaiian, and Gaetan’s Burger is by far the most impressive in the whole city with its 3 steaks, 2 slices of cheddar, slice of raclette cheese, egg and bacon. That’s all it is! If you have room for dessert, you’ll love the Oreo Cookie Bash and the many milkshakes. It’s quite noisy when it’s full, but it does not spoil the quality of the ingredients, the plethora of menu and the very good atmosphere. An American Diner the way we love them!!! At Rennes, you have friendly service, fast, and good prices with a surrounding ambiance of Americana and lovely architecture just steps out in old town Rennes!  Recommended!

The official Back to the 60’s restaurant as of August 2022

A bit of history on the American Diner: The dinner originated in the second half of the 19C in the northeastern United States. Originally conceived as a traveling roadside restaurant, the “dining car” or “lunch wagon” captivates with speed of service, an affordable price and extended hours. The dinner then settles in the form of prefabricated buildings that retain the tradition of a rectangular structure and the conviviality of the banquettes but adopt from the 1920s an influence Art Deco. Popularized worldwide in the American cinema of the 50s and 60s, the American dinner is somewhat neglected with the emergence of large chains of fast food. It resurfaces today, often in its style of the 60s, and differs in this warm and simple atmosphere, born of its history.

According to figures from Civitatis, the platform for guided tours, excursions and free tours in Spanish, these are the most visited towns in Spain so far this year. A good guide for your next trip to Spain, I have visited most.

Fornells (Menorca). This small coastal town is one of the most charming places on the entire island of Menorca.

Trigueros del Valle (Valladolid). Belonging to the region of Campiña del Pisuerga, this town has stepped on the heels of Fornells, remaining very close to being the most visited town so far in 2022.

Peñíscola (Castellón). Despite the fact that Peñíscola has played a very important role in history since the Phoenician era, its most illustrious character is from the medieval period: Pope Luna.

Trujillo (Cáceres). The birthplace of Francisco Pizarro (Peru) is also one of the most popular towns in recent years due to its beauty, its historical importance and its proximity to other tourist destinations such as Cáceres.

Albarracín (Teruel) For many one of the most beautiful towns in Spain, and this is demonstrated by the candidacy in process to make it a World Heritage Site for its beauty and uniqueness. Yes indeed!

San José (Almería).Made up of low, white houses, this town is characterized by its tranquility until summer arrives, when the population multiplies by four due to its landscape and the number of activities that can be done outdoors.

El Paso (La Palma) . Also known as ‘The city of almond trees’, is the largest town on the island of La Palma and perhaps the luckiest, as it houses one of the planet’s natural wonders: the Caldera de Taburiente National Park.

Guadalupe (Cáceres). Another town in Extremadura sneaks into the top of the most visited towns in Spain. Its natural environment (Guadalupe is just a stone’s throw from the spectacular Villuercas Ibores Jara Geopark), its traditional architecture and, above all, its monastery, have won over thousands of visitors in the last quarter.

Setenil de las Bodegas (Cádiz). Its historic center, declared a Historic Site, is embedded in the gorge formed by the Guadalporcún River.

Tabernas (Almería). Many visitors have found in Tabernas and its desert the ideal place to apply the rules of social distancing while enjoying an environment so impressive that for decades it captivated the world of cinema.

Árticus, a new Christmas amusement park will open in the Casa de Campo in Madrid, between December 16 and January 8, 2023, A new 100,000-square-meter Christmas-themed amusement park, with the name of Árticus.

The madness of country music in Île-de-France and in the Oise dept 60 ! Everywhere in Île-de-France and in the Oise, country clubs are full of members. Because this dance from the United States seduces by its accessibility and its conviviality Indeed must be a craze as in my area in Morbihan breton they do festivals where it is included too, I did it while in college just for the girls lol !! Comes to mind Finky’s in Daytona Beach, Florida !

Justice has ordered the return of an impressionist painting by Camille Pissarro, “La Fileuse“, to the Mullot family, farmers from Seine-et-Marne (77). Jean-Jacques Bauer, the descendant of a Parisian collector looted during WWII, claimed it. The case was dismissed. It is a small impressionist painting by Camille Pissarro, dating from 1874, rather dark, entitled “La Fileuse”, which was the subject of a legal showdown between Meaux (Seine-et-Marne 77 ) and Paris. With on one side, a family of farmers from the small village of Aubepierre-Ozouer-le-Repos, in possession of the canvas worth some 150,000 euros. And on the other, the Parisian Jean-Jacques Bauer, 92, whose Jewish grandfather, Simon, a collector, based in rue de la Pompe (16éme), had been robbed of 93 paintings in 1943, including 13 by Pissarro, by the Vichy regime under the Nazi boot.

It was described by Emile Zola in “l’Assommoir”. The Lavoir Moderne Parisien, located at 35, rue Léon, in the heart of Goutte-d’Or, in the 18éme arrondissement of Paris, is on the verge of dying despite its notoriety. To support its occupants in their fight, a vast petition has just been launched. Among the first signatories, Annie Ernaux, Nobel Prize for Literature. The objective is simple: to push back the City and thus challenge the mayor (PS) of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, in order to save the Lavoir. A place transformed in the 1960s into an atypical performance hall, with obvious cachet. Since 2008, even if its existence is regularly threatened, the theater has always resisted. This is what needs to be save not a road closure as the mayor likes to do better !!Facebook page:

The RATP structures are subject to a detailed inspection every five years. That of the Austerlitz viaduct in Paris, on line 5, 118 years old, has just started.

They have barely more than three hours of intervention before having to clear the way for the resumption of commercial traffic in the early morning. So a lot of work going on to update these old structures many ride on daily !

What if the dream of resuscitating the Château de Saint-Cloud finally took shape? The supporters of the reconstruction multiply the projects to convince the State. The monument was destroyed by flames during the Franco-Prussian war in 1870 (like several others among them the palace of the tuileries) and whose ruins were razed in 1892 .

For its 50th anniversary, the unmissable Saint-Arnoult péage or toll takes a look in the rear view mirror, Commissioned on October 30, 1972, this vast gateway to and from the Paris region initially had 20 lanes before almost double in the 1990s. But for the largest toll in Europe, the future can be imagined without barriers thanks to “free flow”. For so many motorists, the Saint-Arnoult (Yvelines 78) toll is or has been “the” gateway to and from the Paris region, a sort of first (and last) stopover for families going on holiday by car.

At the Museum of Fine Arts of Nancy. We dive there, young and old, in universes that defy perceptions and habits. Are you ready ? From the ground floor, the scenography of the course is immersive: gigantism and jubilant excess are put into space, then on the first floor the colors darken, the walls tighten and after a narrow labyrinth-like corridor, the ceiling lowers to evoke a more distressing universe.

Thus, when she uses the title and part of the composition of Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe, she substitutes three young black women for the female and male characters in the first scene of Manet’s canvas.

You like Claude Nougaro, you’ll like Toulouse, ( I openly admit I do !) Born in Toulouse but became famous in Paris, Nougaro had an ambivalent relationship with his city, which he sang about in “Toulouse”, “C’est une Garonne” and “Toulouse, to win “. However, he returned to live there late. Since then, he has been one of the heroes of the Occitan capital. When his career took off in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Nougaro abandoned the surroundings of the Canal du Midi where he was raised by his grandparents. The poet’s birthplace is located at 56, boulevard d’Arcole, on the edge of the neighborhood where he grew up, in a once popular suburb, Les Minimes, and its red brick which is everywhere in the city. Its basilica, one of the tallest buildings in Romanesque Europe, is a coral flower that the sun sprinkles when the light shines on this octagonal bell tower which soars towards the sky in stages, to culminate at 65 meters. The surroundings of Saint-Sernin Basilica are enchanting: here begins the pedestrianized town and its rue du Taur which leads to the Capitole. Having returned to Toulouse from the end of the 1980s until his death in 2004, he is honored in many ways. Represented under the arcades of the Place du Capitole by the painter Raymond Moretti, among 28 other images emblematic of Toulouse history, his giant photo is also present on a wall at the corner of rue Valade and rue Pargaminières. And his statue, like a rock star leaving the stage, appears behind the Capitole ! info webpage:

Lapparra, the lair of goldsmiths . Owner of the Lapparra goldsmith workshop since 2014, designer Odile Casset de La Chesneraie is bringing a new lease of life to this house founded in 1893 in the Marais, in Paris. At the beginning of the 19C, there were 150 goldsmiths working in the workshops of the rue du Temple, in the Marais, in the heart of Paris, making cutlery sets, champagne coolers, trays and other items in silver or manufactured in various precious metals. There were so many of them that they sometimes had to share the same address. This was the case at 157 rue du Temple, where three workshops were located. Among them, Lapparra, the last survivor of this history which made the rich hours of French decorative arts.

The rivers of France irrigate the territory of the country by forming a thousand places of leisure, contemplation and nature walks. Some of my favorites are:

Nearly 500 km long, the Dordogne has its source in the Massif Central and merges with the Garonne to form the Gironde estuary. Crossing six departments, it first winds its way through the wooded slopes of Cantal and Corrèze, before becoming more welcoming in the Lot, where canoeing opens up remarkable landscapes on the limestone causses and pretty Quercy towns. . Further on, in the Dordogne department, it winds between belvedere villages and castles, in a very “postcard” setting of the south-west of France.

The Saône, the major tributary of the Rhône is a placid river that originates in the Vosges and crosses the Haute-Saône and the Côte d’Or, before skirting the beautiful wine-growing regions of Macônnais and Beaujolais. Its particularity is to be the most important river in France by the size of its hydrographic basin.

The Odet, this Breton coastal river, located in Finistère dept 29, is sometimes considered the most beautiful river in my lovely Brittany. There are several reasons for this… Born in the heart of the region, in the Black Mountains, it sinks north of Quimper into a wild, wooded and humid furrow: the Stangala Gorge, ideal for beautiful hikes. After Quimper, where merchant ships once sailed, it widens out into a valley overlooked by private castles before flowing into the Atlantic at Bénodet, one of Brittany’s most popular seaside resorts.

Coming from the Lozère plateau, the Tarn flows from east to west crossing several departments of Occitanie, before joining the Garonne near Moissac. Watering the towns of Albi and Montauban, it is crossed by the Millau viaduct, one of the most famous bridges in France, but really stands out as a tourist destination in its upstream part, at the level of the famous Gorges du Tarn. Between Sainte-Enimie and La Malène, the river cuts deeply into the Causses Méjean and Sauveterre, offering one of the most splendid road trips in France.

The Seine, the river that waters Paris, one of the most beautiful cities in the world! In his journey through the capital, he exalts the beautiful buildings, the François-Mitterrand Library, the Louvre museum, that of Orsay, the National Assembly, the Eiffel Tower… After Paris and the splendid site of Andelys (Château- Gaillard), the Seine undulates in loops to form some of the most typical landscapes of Normandy. Its mouth at Le Havre is the pretext to discover this port city classified by UNESCO.

The Loire, the river king of France. This great river crossing France almost from side to side is in itself a “tourist novel”. Its source, the Mont Gerbier de Jonc, in Ardèche, is the object of an invigorating pedestrian pilgrimage. Upstream and downstream, it runs along on foot and by bike, notably by borrowing the Véloloire and the Eurovélo 6. Above all, in the Center and the West, it crosses one of the most historic territories famous of our country, the “Châteaux de la Loire”. Chambord, Blois, Amboise… announce the beautiful city of Nantes and the port of Saint-Nazaire.

Capital magazine has teamed up with two market experts , SeLoger and Empruntis to offer you a real estate tour of France.
For this eighth edition, Capital takes you to Occitanie. We have selected the eleven cities currently most sought after by the inhabitants of the region and newcomers aspiring to change air: Carcassonne, Narbonne, Nîmes, Colomiers, Toulouse, Béziers, Montpellier, Tarbes, Perpignan, Albi and Montauban.
