The place is open after 3pm, which is not the case with every restaurant in Lyon. It was very good for late lunch/early dinner. We had soup, burger tartines and a plate 'mer et terre ', food was good and fresh, priced reasonably. Not too fancy, but quite popular.

Agree with reviewer Tammam A, the tartines leave a lot to be desired. Do NOT order the goat's cheese and thyme tartine, it is literally thick chunks of stale bread with the thinnest scraping of white gunk. The side salad was literally an overpriced bowl of greens. I tried the white and rose wines to go with these, and both... More

We had lunch at L'Epicerie and we were really happy about the quality of the food and service! The place offers quite a fast service, really nice sandwiches and water on the house. The prices are not so bad either. The only downside about the place is that if you want to catch a table outside, it might be hard... More

The idea is great, the execution is not so much so. It is all in the details. I like the place, the people are nice and it was packed for a Thursday lunch so we went on. We ordered a tartine of sautéed meat which turned out to be practically sauce bolognaise and cheese and a tartine of marinated anchovies... More

As visiting and walking through Lyon we came through that restaurant. At 11 30 the restaurant was empty, at 12.00 it was full. The food is simple, genuine, great. The service is really nice, fast and frendly!!! Go there for a light meat, it is just great!!!

Gazpacho, an open sandwich and a beer. Good service, reasonable prices and nice food. You can eat at the tables on the street or inside. What's not to like?

Though the venue was crowded, the staff were lovely and managed to squeeze me in (literally!) to a place at a sharing table. The types of meal on the menu were rather limited to "tartines" which was not a French word I knew but guessed to mean hot (sometimes open) sandwich. What there was was tasty though and promptly served,... More

After a two hour guide tour and a lot of walking we stopped here for a tartine and a glass of wine. Superb! The place was buzzing and we managed to get a table in the window, it was a hot summers day. The warm three cheese tartine and pot of rose wine was perfect choice. The superb display of... More
