Situated on the corner of the very lovely Maison du Chamarier (take a peek at the courtyard at 37 Rue St-Jean next to the store – you won't be disappointed!), À La Marquise's shop window never fails to catch the eye of passers-by.
Did you know that the store was named in honour of the French Marchioness of Sévigné (Marquise de Sévigné) who stopped here several times during the 17th century?
I don't know about you, but I just couldn't resist eating a praline tart. Here, sugared almonds are sold in every way possible, a tantalising experience for your taste buds! In tarts, brioches, or just like that. But maybe you'd prefer to try their almond-based Bugnes, Coussins or Cocons? All of Lyon's sweet delicacies can be admired here, and enjoyed onsite in the tea room.
Now isn’t that just great?
