Just called in to refresh my batteries after walking around Lausanne for most of the day. Great little set up. Plenty of space. Staff were most friendly. And the cheese cake was an added bonus as only wanted a brew.

Crowded terrace at lunch but the waitresses handle it well. The furniture of the terrace not very confortable and stable, had a look inside which I loved. As for my lunch choice: homemade Baccalà filled ravioli with shellfish sauce and zucchini. Generous, lots of flavour....More
