Hi all! After getting settled into our room in Lyon, we walked around looking for brunch and found this quaint cafe called Konditori.
Hands down the best cappuccino I’ve ever had. The little bit of freshly shaved chocolate adds just the right amount of sweetness.We both were looking for a breakfast sandwich and thought the focaccia grillee was close.This dish was so fun to eat. I spread the pesto on the grilled focaccia with the roasted tomatoes and it tasted like pizza. The salad was light with lemon and olive oil which balanced the homemade garlic herb sausage. I will confess I didn’t touch my egg though – I just can’t do eggs that runny.After brunch, we walked around the city to check out the buildings and water.I love this flower sculpture and the cone building in the back is our hotel – see it’s easy to find!I took alot more pictures of buildings but here are a few of my favorites.I haven’t yet eaten at a pastry or bread shop but it’s definitely on my list…look how beautiful these are.Since it was pretty hot outside, we cooled off by strolling through the Lyon Part Dieu Mall. It has probably everything you need with 5 floors. The stairs, elevator and waterfall below is just cool.On our way out, The Husband declared he wants a car like this to drive around the city.And, if he cannot have the one above, he will take the cute red car below lol.We decided on Italian at this little Italian Cafe called Quirinale for dinner.I could definitely get used to dining Al Fresco with this view. I also kinda love they give you a Perrier glass with your Perrier and a Coke glass with your Coke.We both ordered the chef special lasagna and I managed to have a salad with tomatoes added all while ordering in French. I felt so proud when the plate came out – I got it right!I knew we had to order dessert when I saw specules aka Biscoff on the menu. We shared the Tiramisu Specules.This dessert was so good – creamy without being too creamy, a little sweet then layered with crunchy and chewy biscoff.We chalked up 25K steps for the day as well.
I’ll catch up with you all later with my recap of the Antique/Flea Market, City Food Market and the Basillica de Notre Dame.
