Café des Fédérations

Café des Fédérations Review

For 80 years this sawdust-strewn café with homey red-check tablecloths has reigned as one of the city's leading bouchons; however, it may have overextended its stay by trading on past glory—some readers report a desultory hand in the kitchen, and native Lyonnais seem to head elsewhere since the legendary Raymond Fulchiron's recent retirement. Still, for a taste of classic Lyon gastronomy in a historic setting, the deftly prepared local classics like boudin blanc (white-meat sausage), boudin noir (black sausage), or andouillettes (veal and pork tripe sausage) are hard to beat.
