I live a few blocks from this restaurant and regularly go here on my date nights with my husband (and with friends, and solo...) I love the salmon tartar and the desserts are delicious. The service is a bit slow, but that's a regular thing in Switzerland. Book ahead if you want to eat dinner, they are always full!

This place is well known for brunches in Lausanne (so do book if you want to find a table). We went there however for their steak tartare. It is not a regular one though. It comes not very spicy (difficult to customise as it is prepared in advance), with olive oil, basil and salad. I liked it! Others at the... More

The café is pleasant and relaxing with armchairs and sofas besides regular tables. Food is less tasty than it sounds on the menu. I was speechless when a friend ordered the "bocal de lentilles aux herbes" (literally "jar of herb lentils") as a snack, and was presented with a small glass like those used for yogurt filled with fridge-cold lentils,...

Lovely food but the restaurant is clearly popular - be sure to book for lunch to avoid disappointment. It can get very busy at times and with this comes a lot of noise - though some people may enjoy this relaxed and sociable atmosphere. Well deserved good reputation.

As I live very close to Grancy Boulevard and Avenue du Rond-Point, I usually go to this Cafe with some friends. During the winter the good tip is to have a cup of hot red wine and some cheese and bread, before going home. On Sundays you can have a delicious brunch, but do not forget to book in advance,...

A really busy spot for the hipsters of Lausanne. Great brunches at the weekend but book early. If you want to eat in a hurry this is not the place for you... very slow service, but that's part of the charm. You can enjoy the board games, books and more inside ;-)

Easily accessable from Lausanne central train station, either a wonderful terras or a large open space restaurant is available to its clients. The personnel, is inviting despite the rush, eloquent in an apparently a number of languages. The menu is rather interesting as it explores interesting combinations of fresh foods. The quality and taste are very good, as it remains... More

I love this place with kids or without them! You can eat or have coffee comfortable sitting in the coach or you can reserve a table!
