Sitting on a street corner in a quiet neighbourhood behind the main train station, this is one of Lausanne’s most popular cafés, so much so that you’d be hard pressed to get a table for lunch or dinner without booking ahead. Stop by in the afternoon and it’s a much more relaxed vibe. With an array of hot drinks – including 15 speciality teas – comfy armchairs, a selection of battered books and board games, plus free wi-fi, it’s easy to while away the day. The food is consistently good (especially the desserts) and there’s always something to draw you back, including fondue night on Wednesdays and brunch on weekend mornings.
