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.

the place is ok, they are open between lunch and dinner, which makes it very attractive in this area. they basically serve soup and bread with different things on top. it's nice for a Snack but usually packed so it's not very cosy there...

If you are looking for sth unique or gastronomic.. this is not the place. But for 6 euros, you can have a good size tartine. The tartine base here is that of bread, not the thin crust type of tartine. Not much meat options, especially for the hot tartines. The sweet tartes are delectably displaced and taste not bad.

Second time dining here both times were great and I will go a third and fourth time! First time I had a Tartine. It was nice but a little overpriced. Second time I had the Traditional Burger. Two pieces of sliced bread, lettuce, cheese and the tastiest beef paddy I have ever had. The cow must have had an amazing... More

Looking for a place where to have lunch on Sunday is not always an easy task, especially when you want something original and good. That's why I tried this address, following some advice I got. Now I surely recommend the place which is certainly good also the other days of the week ;-) They offer a large variety of home... More
