Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food was really good. Enjoyed the brunch including the eggs benedict, eggs in a hole, truffle and cheese, and beetoast.

we went for a Sunday friend and family brunch - enticed by the good reviews. We were disappointed by the above and had a hard time simply having a conversation at our table due to the high level of noise and "music". Also, there was...not a great deal of vegetarian/vegan options to choose from. The French toast was un-appetizing and not even a considerable amount of maple sirup was able to save it. Staff was quite friendly.More

This review is long overdue as I have been taking my coffee at the pointu since they opened. This is one of the two places I consider serving a good coffee in lausanne and I am a coffee snob with Italian genes. So trust me....The staff is always friendly even during this tough time of covid pandemic. They managed to keep the good atmosphere in the coffee AND respect the distancing measures. Brunch is amazing as well as the tartine for normal lunch.More

I was so excited to try Le Pointu and was looking forward to the brunch all week. We went today and we will probably never return. The drinks and coffees we ordered were good, then the food came. The presentation was lovely but my benedict...was cold and my husbands meal was warm. I have never been served a cold breakfast plate before and was unable to finish the meal it was so so bad. I can only imagine how long the plate was sitting before being brought to me. I didn't say anything to the staff, because they were packed and we did not feel like waiting more time for food. We have only heard good things about this place, and are so disappointed in our experience.More

We order one of the most common plate on the menu (Eggs Benedict) for a brunch and they came after 1 h waiting with a bread so crunchy and hard that was impossible to eat. We asked to the waiter if they changed something on...the menu (since last time that I ordered the same plate, the bread was very good). She answered in a very impolite way and turn back to talk with other client while I was still talking. I also asked if next time there was the possibility to eventually order another bread and she kept answering in aggressive way not even letting me finishing to talk. So service really slow and very impolite and poor food quality! It was my last time at Le PointuMore

I’ve been a few times, for brunch, lunch and coffee and this place is always a pleasure. The decor is warm and inviting, with a large communal table in the center and plenty of smaller tables surrounding it, lots of light that gives a feeling...of extra space, and the food is refreshing and pretty. My favorite meal was a poke bowl with salmon, purple rice, avocado and other delights. I devoured that and felt good about it afterwards! They also have creative cocktails, coffees and teas. The service is welcoming and attentive without being overbearing and the atmosphere is alive and buzzing. Next time I want to try dinner!More

Small, a bit cramped, clearly popular with a young crowd and a nice, buzzy atmosphere. Great service and delicious food, they even manage to improve upon the classic brunch staple: avocado toast! Plus excellent poached eggs, superb crispy bacon and little salads on the side....Add a glass of Mimosa Prosecco and you've got an exceptional Saturday brunch which really hits the spot! Tip: You definitely need to book - we saw a number of disappointed diners who didn't have a reservation being turned away, and it would be a great pity to miss this lovely addition to the (somewhat limited) Lausanne restaurant scene.More

Ive only visited this place once on a short trip to Lausanne,but i have to say, this place is all about the cheesecake. We were a company of three and everyone agreed that the cheesecake is among the top 3 best cheesecakes we've ever tasted....The hot chocolate i ordered was quite boring though, so i won't give it 5 stars. But go there for the cheesecake, its a shame if you would miss that out...More

This would be one of the best place to have a weekend brunch. Can get busy so be sure to book a place on their website in advance. Love the decor, friendly service in English and French. There is just no fuss about it. The...brunch menu buys into Swiss blogger Sofia Clara's 'happy handmade homemade' philosophy. Had the Eggs Benedicts with Salmon and Avocado Toast. Can't wait to be back for the other menu items.More

Looked like a nice place, food looked good too . But ! Information about needing a reservation for Saturday/ Sunday brunch was contradictory both on their own website and other sites and apps.

Tried to come here two or three times for Sunday brunch and every time the staff claimed they had no food left. Honestly, I’ve never heard something like this before. Then, we’ve booked a table online, one week in advance and are expectations were high,...since everyone was talking about this place in Lausanne. It turned out to be very average. Overcooked Eggs Benedict, Tasteless pancakes, snobby service. Better enjoy your brunch at other places. Not worth returning.More

My husband and I decided to go to this restaurant because it had gluten-free bread because I wanted gluten-free toast, but the server suggested I got avocado toast instead. I ended up scraping that avocado off the toast the toast was fabulous, definitely a little...overpriced, but that is Switzerland for you. My husband loved his small stack of pancakes. It was very hot inside the restaurant and crowded.More
