Very very close to the lausanne train station ( Gare ). Nice welcoming service and the croute aux champignon was delicious. Good value for these parts.

Thank Val-Panama

En route to Paris, changing at Lausanne, this attractive and unassuming nearby cafe was a godsend. It was a beautiful day and we sat on the cafe terrace, glimpsing Lake Geneva and the Alps across Lausanne roofs cascading down the hill to the lake's edge: a peaceful space, with locals sipping cappuccinos and reading newspapers, or chatting over morning espressos. We were thrilled to see two black kites flying over and mentioning this to the friendly proprietor,Dominique, she produced a collection of marvellous bird photographs taken by a client of the cafe for us to look at. Her kindness in making our last stop on our European holiday so pleasant makes this cafe a rather special memory. Next time we take the train through Switzerland, we hope to stop in Lausanne and revisit.

The food is good, with a reasonable value for money for the Lausanne area. The restaurant looks a bit outdated but with a simple appearance and a familiar atmosphere. The service is good, kind, and attentive.

Le Tortillard is a 5 mins walk from Lausanne gare and next to the Grancy stop of M2 (you may also take bus no: 2). It is quite a secret (which is probably why it didn't have a page on Tripadvisor!) since it is tucked away and is a local family run cafe-restaurant (and the clients are mainly locals too).

The owners are very nice and friendly. The ambiance is quite homely, with a mildly traditional decor. For a little cafe, they do have a good range of beverages (try their special teas!) and grub (everything cooked to order by the owners themselves)- the food is wholesome (nothing too fanciful) and delicious. It is the place to be, away from the hustle and bustle.
