Let’s have a Brunch !

After 3 months at INSA I can guess that you are sick of the Beurk’s Brunch, aren’t you ?

You would like to wake up sunday morning and be happy to eat some good food, but you are sad because it’s not the case … I am glad to say that this article is made for you. As a good scan student maybe you miss the fantastic brunch eaten when you travelled across England or The United States.

Don’t worry, Lyon is a cosmopolitan city and you will be able to find whatever you are looking for.

For you I made a selection of places to have a great brunch divided in two parts: on one hand the english brunch and on the other hand the american one.

The english brunch:

  •  « The Butcher » located near « Hôtel de Ville » ( on the underground A )
  • « La Tour Rose » located in the old Lyon : this one is a bit expensive but i think you could have a really good brunch

The american Brunch:

  •  « 10 fingers » (Bellecour place ) is the cheapest restaurant, between 6€ and 13€, and you will have coffee offered !
  •  « Café J’Adore » After climbing the slopes of Croix-Rousse you will reach the place to be, you will need to book because there is lot of people
  • « Crêperie Belle île » next to Massena you will eat some pancakes for your breakfast.

TV Show of the week: Christmas Special

Except if you live in a cave, you certainly know that Christmas is coming! Hot chocolate, snow, gifts, music… The best time of the year definitely! If you want to start Christmas a bit in advance, we made you a list of the best Christmas’ TV show episodes.


Friends – 7×10 – The One With The Holiday Armadillo

This episode of Friends remains a classic. A hilarious episode where Ross desperately tries to interest his son Ben to his Jewish side and teach him what is Hanukkah. But what Ben wants is Santa Claus.



The Big Bang Theory – 2×11 – The Bath Item Gift Hypothesis

Sheldon worries about the approaching Christmas holidays and his indecision about what gift to get Penny. This is one of the most touching episode of The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon is hilarious in this episode and his interactions with Penny are priceless.


Community – 2×11 – Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas

At lunch on the final day of classes, Abed believes that the upcoming Christmas is the most important Christmas ever due to his perception of the entire group as being stop-motion animated. This Abed centric episode is totally awesome thanks to the very well realized stop-motion, and its sweet Christmas spirit.

Doctor Who – Season 5 special – A Christmas Carolimages

Doctor Who is a very special British TV show. If you try it, you will either hate it, or love it (I let you guess in which category I am). This stand-alone episode is a beautiful Christmas fairy tale, and the musics are really lovely.



Scrubs – 1×11- My Own Personal JesusxGujQt2b.640x360.0

Scrubs is a very interesting comedy, it can be very fun and very heartbeaking at the same time. Because Christmas is not a good time for everyone, in this episode we spend the night with JD trying to save a patient in a coma and Turk trying to recover his faith.


What’s up on my screen?

 Which film for Christmas?

Christmas? Love? Film? You have to watch (or watch again) Love Actually. (Boyfriends, run away!)

Joyeux Noël: Ok maybe war is not the best time for Christmas, but it remains a very beautiful movie.

Do you wanna be 10-years-old again? Watch Home Alone 2: Lost In New York.

Because Christmas and Tim Burton are making an awesome mix : The Nightmare Before Christmas.
