A café for the people

Whether you’re resting your derriere on one of the benches beneath the shade of the trees in summer or by the fireplace in winter, it’s always pleasant to spend time with Julien, the owner, who is (supposedly) a bit of a “bad boy”.

Café des Mauvais Garçons 2 Place du Petit Collège - 69005 Lyon 5ème

People come here for a pint, or to chow down on a home-made tartare, a goat’s cheese, tomato and grape toastie, the absolutely mouth-watering roasted camembert cheese, or a grilled beef rib (great when you’re famished), all prepared in an open kitchen that will really get your appetite going.

So roll up your sleeves and get stuck in!

Collector's original visuals and voice have made it a big hit in Lyon. It offers locals a different view of their city: more modern, more urban, and even a little offbeat. In just a few years, this guide has become the repertoire of “places to be”. It opens doors to somewhat secret worlds – just the way we like them in Lyon.

Camille

Rising with a smile on her face in the morning, always curious and enthusiastic to discover new places (and new dishes) in Lyon, Camille is what the specialists refer to as a « compulsive tester ». More partial to savoury than sweet (even though offering her a praluline – a delicious brioche filled with pralines – is a sure-fire way to get in her good books), Camille devotes herself body and soul to testing new food establishments in Lyon. Her radar for new addresses is legendary.
