Cafe in Lyon

A novel concept in Lyon, Sofffa charges by time (€5 the first hour, €2 each subsequent half-hour) during which your coffees and snacks are free. A smattering of leather armchairs, mismatched tables and art-covered stone walls set the scene for chitchat and/or people-watching.

It's much loved by Lyon's creative, new-media types. Sofffa also hosts occasional art openings and other events.
