Bon Appetit!

Café Lyon offers a little bit of France, right in the heart of Tallinn.

 

If you’ve spent any time wandering the streets of Tallinn looking for a place to have breakfast, or even just a coffee before nine am, you will know that it’s hard to find something open. Luckily for us in the city centre, Café Lyon opened a second location in Viru Keskus and they are open from 8.30 on weekdays. As you enter in the morning you are greeted with the smell of freshly baked pastries and coffee. Order yourself a croissant or pain au chocolat (one of the best in Tallinn) and sit down with or take-away a great cup of coffee. If you’re looking for something a bit more filling, they also offer a breakfast menu complete with different kinds of omelettes.

The interior at Café Lyon is modern and stylish. The display at the front counter is filled with wonderful cakes and pastries. It’s almost impossible to go there and not try something. There is ample seating both indoors and out. Service is friendly and professional, though on a busy day, especially on the terrace you may need to flag someone down.

The lunch and dinner menu is everything you would expect from a nice French bistro: French onion soup, frog’s legs, mussels, goat’s cheese salad. If the weather stays nice into September, the large terrace will remain open. The terrace offers its own smaller menu with a selection of different salads and sandwiches or even a burger. Portions are not huge, so it’s not a bad choice for a light lunch. The indoor menu changes seasonally and daily lunch specials are inspired by the best available ingredients.
