Ideal for first dates and in my case for a sunday morning brunch with my wife when I´m in Lausanne, the energy and atmosphere in this old cafe is extremely positive and relaxing, the service and people working in it are very helpful friendly and cheerful lots of warmth cosiness...

A bit pricey by my standard, it's a steal by Swiss standards. The wine selection if rich with local whites and reds. Make time to enjoy a drink in the aperitif corner beside the fire place, one of the cafe's major draws. You are free to linger and will never be badgered to refresh your drink. We dined on a...

A very nice place to eat. It used to be an old typical drinking taverna place , it changed deeply to a nice "branché" and highly appreciated restaurant. A nicecorner of the place is furnished with old and comfortable armchairs and tables, for a coffee or even a quick lunch. The restaurant has such a great success, that you have... More

I have been to Grancy twice. I would say stick to entrees that are standard - don't get too fancy. I liked the salmon but found some other meats not so good. The chicken looked good. A good selection of beers including at least one Belgium. Located a few minute walk below the train station by the Grancy Metro stop... More

Good service, good food, place to go for lunch. Be aware for the parking there are some opportunities but all limited in time, max between 1 and 2 hours.

The Cafe de Grancy is a few metres from the Agora Swiss Night Hotel and a few minutes from the train station. It offers excellent food at reasonable Swiss prices in a trendy buzzing atmosphere. We ate in the cafe a number of times during our stay and were not disappointed. The cafe is always busy and booking for dinner... More

Chilled out place, kids meals nearly the same size as adults but half the price. Loved the relaxed vibe and sense of charm yet locals feel. Tucked away beneath the train station.

We went there for a brunch with some friends and it was quite nice. The food was delicious, some of us took the brunch and others just a simple meal and both were really good. The space is beautiful although a bit noisy when the place is full of people. The staff was really nice and I would recommend going... More
