We had great cappuccino and very good omlet at this small and cozy place in the center of Lyon. Very recommended for a morning breakfast.

We arrived late in the lunch hours after visiting the Musee de Tissue. A very intimate cafe which seats maybe 25 people, we were seated and served despite the late hour. Tourists are outnumbered by locals. It is a friendly and delicious secret to share with friends and foodies of Lyon. The proprietor even called us a taxi to go... More

Within a small dinning room, the furniture is composed by industrial stools and pupils tables. The menu is short but composed by original pie receipes and fresh products. Pies are great and come with fresh salads. Portions are generous. Staff is nice and the service is quick. I haven't taste desserts yet but sounds great. Pity that they don't prepare... More

We loved this little cafe. The staff were friendly, the atmosphere was great and the food was fantastic. It is a reasonable priced and well worth what we paid. Great flavours and interesting ideas in their simple dishes.

Unfortunately for us we just discovered this little family run eatery on the morning of our departure. We only had coffee there but they allowed us bring croissants from the bakery across the street as it was late morning when we dropped in and they had none left. Not something we are used to and yet in Lyon we found... More

This is the quaint Lyon cafe you are looking for! They offer fresh lunches that have a modern day twist on traditional Lyon food. My friend and I shared two meals from the menu, which was a great decision as the two meals were equally tasty. I went back another two times but for breakfast and I loved breakfast as... More

Of the last 2 times I have been here, the staff have always been friendly, the food has always been delicious and worth the price and the coffee is some of the best in Lyon. This is a place extremely trendy and cool but with a welcoming vibe that means you may stay for hours and hours without realising! Try... More

I have now eaten here twice at lunch, hoping the first time the waiter was just having a bad day. I was wrong. Rude, impatient and unwelcoming, he huffed and puffed when I called to reserve a table, made a fuss when I politely said we were ready to order, and was annoyed that we wanted to pay. Slow, unprofessional... More
