We came across this creperie by chance and definitely struck lucky. It is located close to the cathedral and on the Saturday evening we visited it was very busy. Always a good sign. The crepes we selected were excellent and very filling. Service and value were first class and the atmosphere was just as we had hoped for on an... More

In the city center of Lausanne, in a paved street. The room is not big and the tables are close to each other (very little intimacy when crowded), but the decoration is original and reminds of old trains (with benches and luggage racks). The food is very good ans served relatively quickly. The chef is friendly but the waitresses can... More

We had savory pancakes for dinner and crepes with chocolate and bananas for dessert - and loved all of it! This place is tiny and adorable, and they were incredibly accommodating so we could get to the opera in time.

We liked the atmosphere and food. Yet the main waiter could be much nicer. Long wait for invoice, and no explain with dishes.

When we want to get crepes, we definitely go to Creperie la Chandeleur! They've got a wide variety of choices and the crepes are tasty, a little short in ingredients in my opinion, but that's a rather personal comment. All in all the place is really cool for a night out with friends, pretty authentic too with the decoration and... More

When I read the reviews of the Crêperie here on Tripadvisor, I immediately wanted to try the restaurant out to see whether it deserved its reputation. And after one visit I must say: Yes, it does. A crêpe is something very common. You think: everybody can make crêpes, why should I go to a restaurant for that? Precisely because this... More

This is my favourite restaurant in Lausanne. They serve proper "galettes bretonnes" with yummy cider and exquisite sweet crêpes. The ambiance is cozy and they are very child friendly (despite the lack of room). They have toys and colouring materials for them.

A very busy little creperie, there were no tables at the time we stopped in but made a reservation to come back 30 mins later which wasn't a problem. Crepes were incredible. I would recommend this place.
