Finally tried the Coccinelle café after months from hearing about it. Shopping downtown Lausanne.. and we literally bumped into it. Cozy atmosphere, very friendly, great pastries (try de warm gauffre de Liège) to go with the coffees. Perfect christmas spirit!

Just called in to refresh my batteries after walking around Lausanne for most of the day. Great little set up. Plenty of space. Staff were most friendly. And the cheese cake was an added bonus as only wanted a brew.
