Le Desjeuneur

France doesn’t have brunch culture—lunch and dinner are the bigger meals, while breakfast is typically a small affair, where a meager buttered tartine is all a lot of people can stomach first thing in the morning. Le Desjeuneur is one of the few places in Lyon that serves breakfast and brunch favorites like truffle croque monsieur, banana pancakes, and avocado brioche toast. They don’t take reservations, so there’s usually a line out the door each day. For the truly ravenous, the set menu is so hefty it rivals a hotel breakfast buffet.
