Whether it is for your lunch break or when the end of the month creeps in, there are some great Grenoble spots that offer lunch on a budget.
No need to compromise on quality, quite the opposite… here are 4 spots where you’ll get the best dish for your dosh. Here is our list of Grenoblois restaurants that are quirky and delicious at the sweetest of prices.
1 / L’atelier CGB – The yummy poke bowl
In the heart of the pedestrianized city centre, L’Atelier CGB offers poke bowls made with fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. On the menu, 4 different bowls each with a veggie base, which can then be brought to life with meat, egg or fish, depending on what takes your fancy (and for a small fee). You’ll find unique flavour combinations that really work, at prices from €7 to €9. And what’s more, avocado on toast is just €8.
Address: 24 rue Saint Jacques 38000 Grenoble
Opening hours: Tuesday to Saturday from 9am to 6pm
2/ Ma Petite Dame – Comfort food
This time we are leaving the city centre for the Europole area. At Ma Petite Dame, which is directly opposite the Grenoble Ecole de Management, you’ll find a mixture of 100% homemade and in-season cuisine, blending Grandma’s comforting recipes with an oriental influence. Two set menus with soup or quiche + a starter or dessert for €9, salads for €8 or the dish of the day for €10.50.
Address: 9 rue Pierre Sémard 38000 Grenoble
Open from Monday to Thursday from 8am to 5pm and Friday from 8am to 4pm
3/ Le Tercera – The stuffed focaccia
Next up, Le Tercera brings us back to the pedestrianized area of Grenoble city centre. A super stylish half restaurant, half co-working space hybrid, this neatly polished space offers dishes to suit any appetite from €6. By far the best focaccia in Grenoble and a beetroot houmous to die for.
Address: 8 bis rue de Sault 38000 Grenoble
Open from Monday to Wednesday from 9am to 7pm, Thursday and Friday from 9am to 10pm, and Saturday from 10am to 10pm.
4/ The Café Vélo – The organic canteen
For the final spot, we head over to the Chorier Berriat area to try out this organic canteen that really stands out from the crowd. Its originality stems from the blend of restaurant and bike repair workshop.
The food on offer is simple and delicious. You can enjoy a tart and side salad for the modest sum of 9 euros. A saucy little detail, the homemade tart dough is made from a mixture of absolutely scrumptious flours.
Address 59 Rue Nicolas Chorier, 38000 Grenoble
Telephone: +33(0)9 84 15 23 25
Opening hours: Monday and Friday from 9am to 7pm, Tuesday and Thursday 9am to 11pm.
For all of the above-mentioned restaurants, you can absolutely blow your budget by adding a dessert or choosing another dish from the menu. Nevertheless, the set menus listed here are guaranteed to satisfy your hunger with a delicious lunch.
