A December shopping tour of Lausanne needed a friendly lunch break. Too cold for the cafe's pavement tables and the plain exterior hides the very welcoming staff, layout, decor and menu. Table was available and turnover is frequent but not rushed. Several vege/ healthy options as well as Autumn game specials. Artisan beers, wine by carafe or glass.

The place is nice and has a good visibility from la Rue Central.

The staff is friendly and would benefit in efficiency if organized /coordinated:
1. We were asked by the three waitresses what we wanted to order
2. For the second order, it was a bit of a challenge to get their attention. Much walking around without looking to the room if any customer needs/wishes something.

We had a good and reasonably prized red wine.
The "moitie-moitie" we ordered was very cold, killing its taste. Especially the salami.

As there are various similar places in the neighborhood, we will try one in our next visit.

This is a very casual place, and it does not look like much from outside, but the food is always good. They have a nice array of dishes from pasta, meat and fish, to healthy vegetarian or vegan options. The menu is small, but there is a lot of variety. They also have a good beer selection and, I am told, great cocktails! Definitely recommend this place for its laid back atmosphere and its food!

Good location (rue centrale). Great service! The staff is very attentive. I had the falafel salad with avocado. I'm not a vegetarian, but it was really good. The bar people and waiters were very nice and friendly. Coming back to try the bánh mì sandwich... if its as good as the salad it will be worth it. It is kinda pricy though, but the service makes up for it.

I went 2 times for one simple coffee..both of them they told us that "you can seat, but until one specific hour...cause there is reservation later.." I understand that, but a lot of people come only for a coffee and they just can't :/

The service was perfect and coffee also well done made.
Normal price. Around 4.50 Fr. Cappuccino.
