Had a dinner here with my colleague. Located in a nice quiet place just 3 mins walk from the train station towards the lake side, and right next to Grancy metro station. Service was good, and food was fantastic. Mushroom fondue was delicious. Slightly over-priced but worth the visit.

Went from brunch on Sunday; booking is mandatory; you can be sure the place is packed (gets very noisy) so service can be a bit slow but nice and informal. They don't serve a buffet brunch but have options a-la-carte instead. The menu also includes a few non-brunch options, like for example a yummy cheeseburger (slightly undercooked though). A renown...

Quite a trendy little café close to the station. Good for kids. It has a good menu and reasonably priced - the brunches are very good. A few tables outside though not much of a view, often busy and needs booking ahead.

People are so attentive and charming! The beef tartar is rely good even if it could be more tasty And spicy. The calf tArtar very fresh and fine, with a bit too much of corsica flab. We definitely voted for desserts! The chocolate tart...! Damn it!

This place is very atypical in Switzerland. Reasonably priced, extremely informal, cosmopolitan, fun, with a short but delicious menu. I cant belive it has taken me so many years visting Lausanne for work to discover this place - tucked behind the metro station Grancy (between Lausanne Gare and Ouchy). What I love about it is that it is suitable for... More

Cosy place for lunch in a bistrot style atmosphere, the food is good and the staff young and friendly, not very formal atmosphere.
