Cozy cafe close to the station

A good choice close to the train station or for those staying at the Agora Swiss Hotel. Good breakfast options including deserts and mini appetisers.

Our first meal at Cafe de Grancy was Sunday brunch, and it was absolutely fantastic! Yes, the service was a little slow, but I believe that's partly due to the small space they have to work with and the flood of people that is constantly coming in, and partly due to the fact that there isn't a fast-food mentality in...

Went there for brunch with the family and was not disappointed: plenty to eat, friendly staff and as usual the ambiance is great. Went there also for dinner, and same thing: great ambiance and very good food. Can be a bit noisy at times: that's the only downside.

Amazing place, not too expensive just next to the train station. The service is fast and the food delicious. Although very based on salads, steak tartare and Stuff, they have every month specials that go with the seasons, like one time I had a beautiful asparagus ravioli! Yummy! My last menu was a salmon tartare and a nice coffee on... More

10 of us visited the Cafe de Grancy last week and we were not disappointed. The cafe has a lively atmosphere, friendly staff and great tasty food. I ordered the venison and it was really tender. Now it can be a bit too noisy at times, particularly for a work diner. Also service was a little slow due to how... More

Came for dinner with friends. Frienlly-ish, but slow service. The food was average bistro quality, but the place has a very nice ambiance that makes it a nice hangout. Just don't expect much more

Café de Grancy is a longtime favorite, it has character no matter what time of day you stop in. I like the crowded lunchtimes, the lazy afternoons, the fun dinners... and Sunday brunches. Food is consistent and to my liking. The homemade "sirops" are a welcome signature drink option perfect for the afternoon, for example. Beware, their weekly closing day... More

The Cafe de Grancy is an hip place in Lausanne. During lunch time it is super crowded - so it must be good. Luckily we got a table - not a real table but sofa lounge style - even better for a quick lunch with a friend. The service staff was very busy but still having it under control. Food... More
