Good crêpes, a holiday vibe and the best view of Ouchy's poseurs keep us coming back here.
It’s usually thronging with tourists, the staff can be surly and it’s overpriced, but there’s still something about this place that keeps us coming back. It could be the crêpes – buckwheat pancakes served both sweet and savoury, ranging from simple ham and cheese to multi-ingredient gourmet affairs and pudding varieties involving ice cream and liqueurs. It could also be the Breton cider, served in a ceramic bowl like you’re in a little bistro in northern France. The holiday-vibe outdoor seating must have something to do with it too, plus there’s a prime view of the moneyed poseurs that cruise along the lakeside road in their posh cars. Altogether, it adds up to a pleasant and sometimes amusing way to spend an afternoon.
