    You will need a reservation to have a branch here. Unfortunately for me I didn't knos that so I just got a light breakfast. All thr tables were already reserved the time I came by. Their coffee tables are always free for walk-ins like me and it was not that bad too. Their coffees are great. As well as their breads. Cozy and relaxing place to be. Definitely, you will always come back here. Servers are friendly and attentive.

    We had a company outing there. Restaurant is moderate size with tables close together. Staff was professional, cheery, spoke English, they helped with the wines, local artisanal beers and digestives. Very competent. The food was beyond expectations. Perfectly spiced veal tartare, juiciest and most succulent chicken I've had in a very long while, panna cotta was just perfectly wobbly and gentle enough to melt in the mouth. Set menu price was about 50 CHF, portions were on the larger side, but manageable. Overall a real pleasure to visit.

    A cool place to eat or hangout in a typical Lausanne café. Close to the train station and in a lovely neighborhood. Very « retro-bobo » clientele.

    Excellent food for a fair price. Atmosphere is very nice, it seems you eat in old school "salon". We spent about 60-70 usd for two (lunch, coffee, and drink)

    Great find ! Stopped by for brunch, they have a large choice from classic bacon & eggs to pancakes, bakers'basket and even tartare and burgers ! Delicious !

    My last visit I had a great brunch experience; this visit, the kitchen was closed, but the service was still excellent, above and beyond friendly in offering what they could amidst the rennovations.

    Lovely little ransom cafe perfect for travelers from the station with bags. Drinks were good and the rillete was excellent :-)

    We had a fantastic experience on Fondue night and felt really at home. The atmosphere was very unique, seemingly full of locals, which gave it a real buzz even on a Wednesday night. The food was excellent and exactly the authentic dishes we were looking for. The staff were really nice, but it was very busy so the service could be a little chaotic at times. If anything, it almost added to the ambience for us, but it might not for everyone

    Nice seating area , unfortunately the kitchen is closed for construction work. Coffee and croissants are still good to have .

    Nice café, we went there with friends to have drinks but ended up moving elsewhere to eat and drink more because we found it a bit pricey. The waiter was lovely.

    Great coffee! They have a set of delicious hot chocolate drinks - absolutely worth trying. Don’t be surprised if it is too busy, but the service is great.

  • 4Courtney H. 9 months ago
    Unfortunately the kitchen was closed for renovations during our visit, but we still got to enjoy some tapas. Simple, quality, local food. Also a nice collection of craft beers. It’s a very cozy place with a nice view from the terrace. The staff are friendly and helpful.

    Nice cozy café in the sous gare district, in Lausanne. Good service, tasty and fresh food, and cozy atmosphere. Usually becomes full on the weekend, so I would highly recommend you to make a reservation. It is a bit pricey, but take into account that you're in Switzerland... ;)

    Very cute spot but very limited options for brunch. They only offer scrambled on the complete menu but we asked for fried and they kindly obliged. The savoury part Of the complete brunch is a bit boring, there is no sauce to tie it together. The pear jam for the croissant is a good selection though and the croissant was most enjoyable.

  • 3Maria P. 10 months ago
    The place is nice. Unfortunately they didn't service breakfast and lunch, due to kitchen's renovation. Only croissant and cafe/tee. If you don't speak French, will be hard to communicate. Better ask young staff to serve you, they speak very well English.

    Nice atmosphere and outside area, friendly service. Unfortunately it's overpriced, the menu is basic, and the quality of the coffee, drinks, and food is average at best.

  • 2Dan B. 6 months ago
    We came on Sunday for brunch. They forgot our order and half an hour later we had no food or drinks. I went inside and asked about it and the guy came out and took the order again. Eventually it came. Food was not very good; a club sandwich that was mostly egg mayonnaise. A platter with a bread basket that was all stale. My companion’s orange juice came right at the end. 29 CHF for each dish.

    We used to love this place but now its horrible. Service was bad (likely untrained personnel). Had smoked salmon that was prepared as taken from a Coop package and place with a bit of lettuce from the same shop. Deserts were poor. As they seamed to have forgotten how to make chocolate fondant they poured cold chocolate sauce over it. An overpriced, rude and unpleasant experience.

    The service is incredibly slow. It was clear that they were avoiding eye contact and had no interest in providing any service. It took us 30 minutes to order. It's not the first time that we observed this slowness that's why I recommend visiting other places close by in Lausanne for breakfast or brunch.
