We came here for brunch on a Saturday and it was quite busy. The food was very good and there was good coffee as well.

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.

Food is good and solid quantity, locals love this cozy place, always full at eating time, the price is standard for the city, overall good place to come eat.

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

My family and I enjoyed dinner here to celebrate my step-father’s birthday. We sat on the patio, which was nice but without any sort of view. The wait staff was extremely friendly and competent. We had several special requests, which they observed respectfully and got right. The food was very solid - good ingredients and well cooked. The prices are... More

Excellent food and service bill was $60 sf. My wife had a beautiful salad and I has a pasta dish both made with fresh ingredients and had superb taste. Prices range from 25-45sf. The glass of wine was less than half full and the grappa just barely covered bottom of small snifter better to order a bottle of beer. Right... More

Been to this place four times. Twice in September 2015: dinner and brunch. Our experience was so favorable that we decided to go back to Lausanne for another weekend a year later and enjoy a meal at this place. But this year it was rather disappointing: steak was average, dry and not as tasty as last year. Morning coffee weak,... More

Stayed at the Agora hotel next door and noticed that this place was always busy. Picked up a couple of desserts as a takeaway in the evening. They had nothing on display so had to order off the menu. Both the lemon pie and strawberries with cream were tiny quantities for the high price of CHF17. The taste was nothing... More

I've been here many many times with my friends. The food selection is honestly getting better as they offer many healthy choices. So for people who want to enjoy a good meal but watch out at the same time, I would recommend to come here :) The service is good, always very dynamic and responsive. It's one of the busiest...

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
