You guessed it, they serve falafels (fried and crispy to perfection) in a sandwich or pita bread. The home-made drinks (lemonade and iced tea) are delicious and refills are free. In winter, the soups are excellent, as is the Lebanese tabbouleh in summer.

In both locations in Lyon, the food is reasonably priced and can be eaten in or taken away. What's more, the team is young and friendly. This is a great little eatery any time of the day, for a quick, fresh and healthy (all-vegetarian) meal.

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.

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.
