Vegetarians despairing over the lack of vegetarian restaurants in the city will be very pleased with Yaafa, a quick-service Lebanese eatery in Croix-Rousse. A chalkboard displays a host of falafel options and sandwiches, each made with fresh veggies and topped off with tantalizing traditional sauces and hummus. Some favorites include Le Grec, filled with olive tapenade, grilled eggplant and drizzled with white sauce, Le Red Neck, a simple combination of tomato, corn, red onion and Philly sauce, and Le Veggie Fest that comes with assorted veggies topped off with a tomato coulis. Desserts and beverages are available as well.
Homesick U.S. travelers take note! An american-themed café aimed at the student population, Best Bagels has your hot dogs, bagels and large coffees just like at home! In the heart of the Terreaux neighborhood, this small but busy café caters to the youth with a liking for american pop culture. Upon arriving in front of Best Bagels, you can hardly miss the showcase of U.S. sweets and snack boxes in its window, making it a small scale museum of american junk food! The food inside is not, though, and you can order bagels with a wide choice of spreads, so-called "New York hot-dogs" as well as muffins and donuts.
Les Frangins is wildly popular with both locals and tourists who queue up for the excellent fast food that this place serves. Delicious, juicy burgers come with soft, fresh buns and splendid meat fillings, while French Fries are crispy and fresh.

All you have to do is slather it with a huge dollop of readily available mayonnaise, and you're all set. Do finish off with a bite of their delicious desserts that come at a small fee.
A modern taqueria in Paul Bert, MasterTacos serves some of the best taco offerings in the city. Although the menu is rather limited with only three meat options, the quality of tacos is exceptional, packing in deliciousness and flavors in well-made galettes. MasterTacos' fundidos are also spot on, filled with steak, chicken, fish, ham or pepperoni fillings and a beautifully molten cheese sauce. The staff is gracious and friendly.
