Framed by the Saone and Rhone rovers, Perrache plays a key role in Lyon’s transportation services, hosting one of the main train stations, Gare de Lyon-Perrache. If you happen to be traveling through, check out one of these places for a bite to eat.
If it’s a warm and sunny day you can enjoy your meal outside at this Perrache joint. Inside, however, is alive with one of the world’s greatest perfumes: freshly baked bread, home-made each day in-house. Patrons can read the menu on a big blackboard hanging on the wall, where all sorts of traditional plates from the French cannon lure the taste buds.
