In the 1920s-style interior, near the bar, you’ll find the timeless and delicious croque-monsieur, made in the good old-fashioned way with ham on the bone and mature Comté cheese. For your aperitif you can enjoy the house terrine platter with a glass of local beer, or for breakfast a cake made by Guillemette – the cake shop favoured by local foodies.

Book a table on Saturdays for the amazing brunch!

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.

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.
