Crepes

Really good crêpes, quick service and large choice. Seats not very comfortable and when full (almost always) it is very noisy.

This was a great place to have "une crêpe" with an amazing roquefort cheese. The place was packed and even though I was on my own and the lady at the door was not thrilled of having a single customer asking to be accommodated, they were kind enough to found me a table right at the entrance of the restaurant....

Really fantastic food in a wonderful location - just next to the cathedral. Skip a meal so that you can have both the savory and sweet Crepes. Oh and be sure to have the local apple cider.

An amazing place where you can eat tasty crepes... It's not so expensive and the crepes are very heavy... I've been there a lot of times!!! Wonderful!

This place has good ambiance, it's nicely decorated and as you might expect, it has an entre variety of pancakes which will certainly satisfy your preferences. The sweet ones are outstanding, strong flavors and plenty of sugar. However, they do tend to have a common flaw: undercooked. Some people don't have a digestive system that can cope with that which... More

Really very good crepes - excellent choices on the menu, with regular specials - price range from 12 - 20 CHF or so. Often need to book to get a table. Good and friendly service. Always a pleasure to eat there,

Great ambiance in this cozy restaurant and the staffs were very friendly. We were there for our dinner and we were more than satisfied with our meal. The Crêpe with mushrooms, egg and ham was excellent, but the highlight was the crêpe with caramel sauce and salted butter with vanilla ice-cream on top was a pure delice! It was sweet... More

One of the few places in Lausanne where you can have lunch after 14:30 (I've had lunch there at 15:00 and later, I believe you can order anything anytime). Also one of the few places with decent prices in a city that's been ranked the 5th most expensive in the World. It gets quite crowded at Swiss lunchtime on week-ends... More

Our Lausanne friends suggested this place, and they were right! Great food. Do not be distracted by the dessert crepes ( as most are). Go for lunch items to enjoy the flavors of cheese, or mushrooms, or other combinations done so very well you wonder how they do it. Of course, make sure you have the alcoholic cider with the...

I went here with a native of Lausanne who grew up going to this restaurant. Having crepes and alcoholic cider here is a must for an authentic Lausanne experience. The crepes and cider were excellent. Cozy, local atmosphere. Reasonably priced. Call ahead for reservations--it's always busy.
