Lyon counts every month new places, restaurants, bars and shops, among them, the Away Hostel & Coffee shop opened its doors a few months ago in the nice borough of Les Pentes de la Croix Rousse. This new generation hostel, as we see them opening in a lot of big european cities, are quality hostels, nicely furnished with a trendy style, and affordable.
Away Hostel is also a coffee shop, a luminous and cocooning place, where I would easily see myself with a caffe latte in one hand and working on my laptop for hours. But I went there for brunch, on a Saturday morning and it was also a nice time.
The 13€ pancakes brunch is really complete, with sweet and savory dishes, a hot drink and a juice.
Each dish we had arrived with some explanations about its origin, local products, some original food, like this hazelnut spread with a strong flavor, and all the other delicious dips.
Another good point for them, they have chaï latte, my favorite hot drink, which is quite rare on menus !
I liked this place for the quality of the food we had on the pancakes brunch, and the general atmosphere of the place, the original concept with so many different activities, like this yoga-brunch on Sundays, concerts, cultural events, and a nice design decoration.
Now at the Away Hostel
Away Hostel is hosting an event of the electro festival Nuits Sonores, on Saturday 27th of may, starting from 10 am with a panel of great activities, like the yoga-disco (WTF? It makes me want to try it) and of course some music!
