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

If you go there for a meal remember everything is on a slice of bread, even the burgers. ( if you don't like your burger raw, must ask for "Really well done") Mozzarella tartine was tasty. For us, this place was best for coffee and desserts. Cheesecake is out of this world. A cosy, laid back and somewhat romantic place... More

Very popular place. Cosy and friendly. Very reasonably priced. Tasty food and desserts are wonderful. I had the homemade soup which was lovely followed by Nutella tiramisu.... wow! The day before I'd had the grilled cheese & tomatoes on a toasted base and the lemon meringue pie. The burgers were very popular. All the food is cooked in a tiny... More

Great staff, very authentic place with a very nice menu for brunch / light snack and gouter! Highly recommended and prices are within range in the overall expensive / touristic rue mercière.

This is a small , popular, eclectic restaurant that features bread. Toasted bread, with many toppings....mostly cheese, but exciting additions. Decoration is shabby chic and raggity furniture, with collections from a grocery store, set in the 1920s....maybe! Fairly good service and there are salads to go with the gourmet "toasties", soup du jour ( from huge pots on large ,vintage... More

When we arrived in Lyon in the afternoon. We were hungry but the restaurants were closed. The receptionist at the hotel recommended L'Epicerie as a closeby place to eat. We really liked the canapes but our wine selection was not good. The place is good for casual snacks.

Thank 2011MTA
