“Excelent crepes in Lausanne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

This is a very nice creperie in Lausanne. I have been there many times and always return. They have a special crepe every day, so you won't get bored if you go frequently. I must admit that for my eating standards, one crepe is not enough, so I usually order also a sweet one. My girlfriend is just OK with one and some bites of the sweets. You should also ask for Cyder. And make a reservation because is usually crowded, specially on week-ends.

“Super tasty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

Conveniently located near Bessieres Metro station and the cathedral (or up the hill from Place de la Plaud (??) near the old clock/Lush), this place serves really good crepes. It's a cute restaurant that accommodates little people (they have toys and colouring pencils to keep them entertained), and for that we are grateful. We had savoury (mushrooms, ham and cheese) and sweet (chocolate with rum - then they light it up!), and both kinds were fantastic. The savoury was super tasty (thankfully) and the sweet hit the right spot.

The restaurant gets filled up very, very quickly and we noticed lots of reserved signs. The early arrivals seem to be families with young kids, like us. We arrived without a booking just before 12pm on Saturday and was given a table for an hour. True to Swiss timing, after an hour, our bill was given to us without request - which felt abrupt and was probably the only thing that we didn't enjoy.

Either way, this is a great place for crepes. Food arrived quite quickly and they had an English menu, which was helpful. We shall return on a weekday in hope of a less rushed service.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

Always full at noon,if not reserved in advance you have to wait for an empty table,but worth to wait because you will like the excellent taste of this crepe restaurant.salty or sweet crepes are excellent,very tasty.a nice choice of drinks,nice service and atmosphere.try the ham and cheese
crepe with an egg on top as starting plate and finish with a cinnamon and sugar sweet one or
the nutella chocolate one or make your own choice.the choice is big and all crepes varieties are delicious.the prices are correct.

“Just okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Chose to eat here based on the reviews that the food was good and prices reasonable. The prices for a dinner out in Lausanne were very reasonable but the food was very average. The buckwheat crepe itself was good but I found the contents very salty. It was very busy and the tables are just a little to close together for me. Maybe if the weather was better it would have been nice on the cute little side patio.

“Nice crepe worth a try”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

Saw the review here and decided to give it a try. It's easy to find this restaurant, because of its location just down the street from the cathedral. The restaurant was empty when I popped in about 5 pm. Service was quick. I had a ham and cheese crepe and a cuppacino. Both were presented well and the crepe was tasty. Not heavy. Atmosphere of the cafe was cozy indeed. Worth a visit
