Lyon station is where TGV of Eastern and Southern row of France arrive and depart including Dijon, Lyon and Marseille. Inside the train station, on the second floor of Hall 1, you can enjoy the great breakfast at the restaurant, Le Train bleu. 



Le Train Blue is located at the HALL 1 on the platform of Lyon Station. Let's go up the stairs and open the door.


Just push the old revolving door, then the restaurant with more than 100 years of history is waiting for you.



Gorgeous golden decoration, chandelier, and paintings make a fascinating atmosphere. You might feel like you are having a meal in the castle.


Many celebrities such as Coco Chanel, Jean Cocteau, Salvador Dali used to come here frequently. At Le Train Bleu, you do not only enjoy a delicious meal but also feel the history of Paris in the 20th century.


Interior that reminiscent of Belle Epoque is impressive in the age of glamorous prosperity before the First World War. It makes us feel like a time slip to the past from Lyon station where many people are busy.



Having a seat in a quiet room, we have ordered breakfast. You can enjoy breakfast from 7:30am to 11:30am.


First, a glass of water and a glass of juice are served. You can choose either orange juice or grapefruit juice. 



Let's start the day with a French breakfast menu.


In France, it is indispensable to have croissants, bread with chocolat inside and baguettes for breakfast. The bread comes out with several kinds of jam and butter.


Cute cut bread and eggs, and butter. The french way to eat this is to hit the shell of a semi-finished egg with a spoon to break it, and put some butter on the bread and dip it in the egg. 


Le Train Bleu is also serving lunch and dinner, and you can drop by simply to have some coffee or drinks. For lunch and dinner, it is always better to make a reservation in advance on website or by phone.



Le Train Blue is where you can experience an elegant time as if you were lost in the movie world. It is such a perfect place to make a great memory before the train trip!
