Eat here, drink here, relax and feel good. There is not much to fault- service and atmosphere excellent and it has a great vibe. If you don't like low sofas and arm chairs when eating (like me) then make sure you tell them you want a proper table seat but you may have to wait. This is a busy place... More

I've been to the Café de Grancy a few times now, both for lunch and diner but i went back a couple of weeks ago for brunch. I kept hearing about how special the brunch was, a must try in Lausanne etc. Finally booked and boy was i disappointed. The service was just plain bad, the waitress was rude. While... More

Very cute place. A real cafe' French style, mixed crowd, very good food, nice ambiance. The right place from the date to the solo reading of a book while sipping a coffee

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.
