Lunch in Lyon

The hubby and I have a long layover in Lyon waiting for the rest of the family to arrive. We're looking for recommendations for brunch/lunch in Lyon on a Saturday.

  1. Lots of places are closed on the weekends. Also depends upon where in Lyon you will be?

      We'll take the tram in from the airport. We're open to suggestions for the best area to spend a few hours.

        That would probably be the Centre Ville. There are several bistros on the rue Mercier (a pedestrian street near the Place Bellcour) that -admittedly touristy, will be open for lunch. One of my favorites, Brasserie Leon de Lyon at 1 rue Pleney between Bellcour and Place Terraux, is open 7 days a week.
