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.

Ideal for a good discussion or working on the couch during the day. Always busy. Food is healthy. Love their wine and beer selection.

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

Great place to hang out with friends whether it's for after work drinks or a lazy afternoon on the weekend. It's always bustling, but there's always a nice atmosphere. Be sure to book ahead for meals or tables in the evenings or weekends.

This restaurant was close to my hotel, and every time I passed, it was full. There are numerous tables outside, but also a large dining room. It is set in an old, historical building. Service was excellent, and the food very good. Prices in Switzerland tend to be high, but this cafe provided a good value for upscale dining.

We went here twice while staying round the corner in the Agora hotel - once for breakfast and once for dinner. The food was very good. Tasty fondue and lovely breakfast. Unfortunately, the service was mixed in its quality Some examples - They were helpful with our children, but managed to mess up our wine order and, when having breakfast,... More
