Simple, young & Cool!

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... read 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.

Charming little place. Tartines are just lovely, especially the blue cheese one, but i'd recommend trying a few different ones to share. It was a great, tasty and cheap dinner. I'd definitely recommend this place. When visiting Lyon, you just have to experience it.

In the centre of lyon, it is not easy to get a simple yet French meal without being stung. This little Tartine shop is effetively serving cheese on toast, or open sandwiches, but they are tasty, the staff have a little english and the environment is lovely. For what it is, I would have scored it 5, except the staff... More

The almost private courtyard overlooking an art gallery and an old church far outweigh the nothing-out-of-the ordinary food served here, One final point, the house wine was by far the worst I tried in the region.
