Crowded and tight, but cute..

I really liked the atmosphere and style, the place is rather crowded, which makes random people sit next to you. I don't mind, and its actually pretty cool, but some will hate. The menu is very limited and specific. It's filling but I would consider it rather concurrent to a creperie, than full... read more

Stopped here for a spot of lunch, it was very busy outside and we had to wait 10 minutes for a seat inside but my god was it worth it! We had the 3 cheese and pear tartines, they were delicious! I highly recommend the caramel tart for dessert. Great service, very attentive and polite. 5 stars!

A friend and I had dinner here during a weeknight. The place was crowded and as is typical in France, the space between tables was very limited. The food however was cheap and filling. The tartines are of course the specialty and they are delicious with many varieties to choose from. Add a bottle of wine and a dessert (we... More

It is difficult to classify. It looks like a Tea house for teenagers, but it also serves snacks, wine and other stuff. The people there are very young, mingled with older guests, but everybody fells and looks as if they are all regulars. You do not need to order a meal, actually you order what you like. Wine is good... More

The place has beautiful decoration and good unexpensive food, but it was way too crowded. The tables are so close one to another that when one person moved, the others had to move too. Some people had to share tables (I am not much into it), but people didn´t seem to care. The good part is the staff and decoration.... More

A friend of mine living in Lyon suggested me to go there to taste the "tartines"! Very good choice, noisy place but comfortable at the same time. I recommend it if you want to taste the typical Lyonnais food. Awesome staff!!!

My husband and I had dinner here. The staff was friendly and helpful. The staff said the codfish is grilled. I ordered it but it looks all white like it was steamed (no color at all from being grilled or pan fried). It tasted ok. The normal and truffle mashed potatoes were nice (the normal one comes with our mains... More

A great little gem in the center with nice ambiance. Relaxed and with liberal opening hours. Best suited for a casual catch up with friends over a coffee and cake, or one of their delicious, very french warm sandwiches. Local hub!

Fantastic little find down a cobble stone street, metal chairs with a old deli feeling. Orded blue cheese and the mozzarella with a salad. Frendly staff with english comand the prices are reasonable a great little lunch spot in town. Without the tourist trap.

First off, let's start with the food. Terrific sandwiches! But, the atmosphere is the "thing to look for" in L'Epicerie! I can't even describe it. You have to experience it for yourself... Prices are very nice also and the service is outstanding.
