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... More

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.

The strawberry crepe was really nice. It comes with whipped cream and vanilla ice cream. The savory crepe is also good, try the mushroom and cheese crepe!

The crepes were very good and the chocolate too. However the banana that was in the crepe was tasteless. Also the price is little bit high about 9 euro per simple crepe

Located in the old town of Lausanne, very cosy place, known by connaisseur in Creperie. These are the real Crepes from France. Children are welcome even some toys for them. The quality is excellent, the cider great but very expensive. Service is good, the place is often full. Pricing is quite high but worthwhile

Order dessert.... I recommend the one with orange and chocolate Pay the bill Go for a loooong walk and burn all... More

Our kids and us loved both meat based and dessert crepes in this place in the old town. The crepes were very simple - no fancy sauces, just the crepe and sausage or ice cream. Sitting outside was very nice.

we have managed to grab a table for 4 at around 21:30 where the place was packed! the place is nice and authentic; we were served by a nice lady who turned out to be one of the owners. A crepe is something simple at the end of the day but in this place they revisit the crepes in different... More
