This week's spotlight: Garden State

Garden State Juice Bar & Deli
6 rue de la Charité, 69002 Lyon
Open Monday - Saturday from 8am to 9pm

Looking for somewhere new to eat in Lyon? Garden State is now open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and tapas. You can get a drink, stop by for a meal, or take it to-go. Located just off Bellecour, their menu includes:

Breakfast: fresh fruit or veggie juice + hot drink + toast, pancake, muffin or yogurt for 6 euros

Also try their donuts (white chocolate, Milka...) and specialty muffins (blueberry, Milka, chocolate...) or a breakfast blend smoothie.

Lunch: among many other options, you'll find bagel sandwiches and wraps. For 9 euros, try a bagel or wrap + dessert + smoothie.

Oh yeah, and did I mention over 35 KINDS OF SMOOTHIE? Their combinations have great names too, like the Punky Brewster, the Palm Springs, the Cure and the Circus. Delicious!

Opens next week: Best Bagels 2!

Tucked behind the Ampère métro stop, just a block or so away from Ninkasi Ampère, is the location for the soon-to-be-opened Best Bagels! (And by soon-to-be, I mean early next week.) The menu will feature the same favorites as the original restaurant at 1 Place Tobie Robatel.

New location: 14 rue d'Auvergne, Lyon

Found: candy canes!

Spotted at Monoprix!

A pack of 12 was just over 3€.

Or, you can order wintergreen, cinnamon or cherry flavored candy canes from My American Market. Refer your friends and get 10% off!
