3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We went here based on our hotel recommendation. We didn't have a reservation so were seated inside for a party of 6. It was very hot, as there is no AC and Lausanne was experiencing a heat wave. 3 of us ordered pasta dishes, while the other 3 ordered salads. Food was good, but did not knock your socks off... More

We enjoyed our meal here. Friendly staff and really tasty dishes chosen from a fairly limited menu. Inside they have comfortable lounge chairs and books to peruse whilst sipping the morning coffe

Sunday night in Lausanne limits your choice of restaurants but this eatery is just great! Delicious food - from a varied menu that includes tasty vegetarian options. The desserts are incredible-try the chocolate one- definitely a two spoon job! Very handy from the train station too

This wonderful cafe was just a few doors down from my hotel, near the Grancy Metro station. Everything about this place from the decor to the patrons had a bohemian flavor that I liked. Popular with the younger crowd. There's both indoor and outdoor seating, which is where I sat. The brief menu, which was only in French, had a... More

Went there by chance with my family an evening and was amazed with the restaurant. Very young vibe with great dishes and very nice waiters. Recommend it for an evening dinner with friends on the week end. Was very tempted by the brunch that looks amazing. Will go back.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed one of the best meals we've had in Lausanne. We were there on a Sunday night. Huge bonus that they're open on Sundays. We were fortunate to get a table inside. (They have a lovely outdoor terrace but you must make a reservation.) We had the chicken dish which was excellent and the pasta which... More

This restaurant is for Swiss middle class artie types only. It typifies how well they are doing. You eat in A disused shop, spartan surroundings, and with a 150ml glass of wine at 8 ft. And a bowl of pasta 25!!! No plat du jour, but 2 courses at 48 fr !!!!! Overpriced and not that good

Most enjoyable place to have an informal low key breakfast. The set breakfast is great value but if you order separate items you get fresh orange juice!
