Le Monologue

Coffee in Saint-Seurin & Fondaudège

Every fashionable city street has to have one – a new-generation coffee shop, that is – and on rue du Palais Gallien it's Le Monologue. Green-floral wallpaper and plush, velour zig-zag cushions by Parisian design house Maison de Vacances bathe the interior in urban cool. Front-of-house Lyonnaise gal' Morgane is full of smiles.

Homemade cakes, coffee, freshly pressed juices, ginger lemonade and a seriously copious brunch (reservations essential).
