There's hardly any chairs ! There was only four of us, and five other people, but we had to stand for most of our visit. Drinks good, service too, but it wasn't a relaxing experience without enough seats.

Hello David,

We would love to offer our customers more seating but unfortunately we are limited by the canton law to have a maximum of 9 seats as we only have one toilet. I hope you understand that this is out of our control and we would be grateful if you could update your review based on the quality of the service and our coffee =)

Thank you so much for your visit David!

Best,
Sheil

One of the best coffee places I have ever been.
Excellent service (rare in Switzerland), great staff, very yammy coffee and great place
so everything you want to have for a coffee place
snack is quite good as well and it's very close to the main station

This coffee shop stocks The Goodlife coffee which is the best specialty coffee I have ever tasted. Freshly roasted and perfectly brewed the coffee here is definitely worth a try.

They serve a properly (and professionally) frothed cappuccino. Somewhat that's a rarity at Lausanne currently.

The staffs are friendly and the atmosphere is lively. I'd come everyday.

The space is somewhat small. Probably 10 seats or so?

I found this place really cosy and quite. I could study and I took dirty Chai and a capuccino that were good. It's little yes, but I found the personal really kind and the place really nice!
