Right around the corner from our apartment! Lucky us! Pastries to die for and also a section with take out prepared foods, sandwiches etc. Wonderful place for breakfast or afternoon tea or a light lunch. Prices a bit high but so is the quality.

This little gem is across from the tourist office on the place Belfour. Not luxurious interior but the food was superb with several choices for vegetarians. Patisseries were yummy. 2 main courses plus pastries and tea was 36 euros. Recommended.

I was there to it a patisserie and I can say that is really amazing ! the taste of the strawberries is just incredible. I can really really recommend to go there to taste a "Tarte aux fraises" or whatever there all is just simply good.

When walking the streets of Lyon and looking out to have a quick lunch or you're getting tired of the many excellent bouchons (if ever!) why not step into one of the two adjacent locations in the center of the town (either the take-away Traiteur in Place Bellecour or the Patisserie of Rue Emile Zola). Either of them will provide... More

I ate many of their cakes and they are delicious (baba, citrus cake and an Easter chocolate chicken) A good selection and great location near Place Bellecour. One of the best patisserie in Lyon.

Without a question, the most beautifully presented pastries in town. Pricey but worth it (take away is cheaper!). They also have a cafe and lunch menu. Great place to meet friends for lunch or coffee. There are 2 floors upstairs with seating. My only gripe is that even though I have been there 100 times, the same staff look at... More
