‘Le Brunch’ing in Lyon
Experiencing a ‘Lazy Sunday’ in France gives the term a whole new meaning when literally everything you can think of is closed! Good luck buying a carton of milk or urgently needing the assistance of a chemist, if you’re sick you let that little sucker of a germ haunt you until Monday because there is no way any Frenchie is getting out of bed on Sunday to assist you. Thankfully though Sunday’s in France are all about finding yourself in a restaurant enjoying the luxuries of good food and wine (because naturally these are open, god forbid you chop off your finger and require a doctor, but if it’s a full glass of vin rouge you are after, just go to your local cafe and they are more than happy to oblige).
Obviously after a five-week holiday, getting back into reality has been tough, all this sitting around really takes it toll (hint of sarcasm detected) so we decided to attend Veuve Clicquot’s, Le Brunch, allowing a full three hours of eating croissants, drinking champagne and dining on dishes curated by Le Kitchen Café’s chef in Lyon. The menu from this day seemed to have been inspired from the restaurant’s current menu which I wrote about in my previous post. The twists they made were really interesting from the meal I ate at the restaurant but tasty all the same.
Below are a few photos of what we ate…

A French Sunday well spent I’d say…
