Nice and typical outlet

Old traditional place usually for students and young people but also a lot of frequent older customers. Nice food and nice wine list, the whole maybe slightly overpriced. Small terrace. reservations recommended over lunchtime

A'la carte menu, but not in english! It was hard to understand what we were ordering! Friendly staff, and the pasta with pesto was good! The place itself was a bit boring, and looked like an old office dining area/ a place were old people would go! The food was really good, but.. a pasta with pesto, a coffee and... More

The food was delicious, fresh and creative. A bonus were the selection of local micro brew beers, and the service very friendly. A casual cafe, busy with locals. Conveniently located by a metro stop.

Eaten twice now - food was tasty and staff friendly. Good location as very close to Lausanne La Gare (station) so a good place to eat before getting on a train or when returning to Lausanne. Evening one needs to book as busy.

Nothing else to say, just one of the best brunch in Lausanne. I even found a table without reservation!

Visited this place as it was very close to our hotel. It was busy and there seemed to be lots of locals there which is always a good sign. There was a reasonable choice on the menu and nothing particularly wrong with the food, it just didn't 'wow' in the way that the cost and popularity would have suggested.

Reservation is a must; seems to be full all the time but it's totally worth it. Unpretentious great food (try the foi and tartare). English speaking staff (which helps specially after some drinks) and very friendly. Not a big beer selection but better wine list than I expected. Great for afternoon snack.

We are from the US and an enjoyable meal is just as much the service as the food. I will give the restaurant much credit on the food but the service was just terrible. It took 15-20 minutes for anyone to acknowledge we were even there after sitting, even longer to get a menu or order something to drink. The... More

Cafe de Grancy has really, really yummy food, great drinks, great staff and a cozy atmosphere! I suppose they change the menu often, so it's a different experience for the palate from time to time, and almost everything I've tasted there is simply delicious, from fish to chicken to cheese platters and desserts. The wine is also good, and the... More
