Reading the other reviews I had high expectations for this place. It's maybe why my review is not very positive. I tried the cupcakes (of course) and I found their taste quite common, not very subtile, not very creamy. After eating one cupcake I had that sensation of heaviness you have when you eat fatty food. So, it's definitely American.... More

Lausanne is a beautiful, clean organized town, but customer service and flexibility are not amongst its strengths. If you want to order a birthday cake for a Saturday, Tuesday is already late... Stacey, the owner of the Cafe Sweet Dreams prepares wonderful cakes and cup cakes of any style, and super fresh. One of the reasons I am giving 5... More

Lovely little cupcake cafe with fun flavored cupcakes - I had a specaloos one. Yummy. Great buttercream frosting. You can always tell a cupcake by it's frosting. Definitely worthy of ordering for a party or get together. Can wait to try some of the other flavors.

It’s a cute small café close to cathedral of Lausanne. There are 6-8 places to sit with really nice atmosphere. Their cupcakes are just amazingly delicious! I also like their bio tea! I always take my friends visiting Lausanne to this place and they all loved it! I cannot wait to go back!

I only found out about this place following a Groupon deal offering a dozen cupcakes at a reduced price so, with a birthday coming up, I decided to take advantage of this offer and treat my colleagues. I'm glad I did! The cupcakes are delicious (the best I've ever tasted) with a variety of fun and interesting flavours and everyone... More

As a cupcake fan, Sweet Dreams (www.cafesweetdreams.com) is the place where I found the absolute best cupcakes in my life. This is to be expected, as the owner is American and cooks real truly American cupcakes, not local adaptations. The taste is perfect and the cupcakes are very well decorated but don't look “chemical-like” as in so many other places.... More

Sweet Dreams is a tiny café just below Le château St Maire. Every squareinch of it is designed with utmost love for detail. But what makes the café really stand out are it's amazing cupcakes. And if I say amazing I mean amazing. They are probably the best cupcakes this side of the atlantic. Every day you can pick from... More
