This is my second time at this cafe. The first time we ate outside on a sunny day on the very tiny and cramped terrace but had a good meal (chicken tagine, which was the special of the day). My friend reserved a table indoors today given the poor weather and she reserved it well in advance. When we arrived,... More

This place is a definite treat in Morges, the selection of chocolate drinks (hot or cold) and coffees are divine! They have very nice day menu offers. Service isn't always very good and prices are on the higher side, but it's a nice place to meet up with friends.

Good to be with friends for a salad. Very good Indian ambiance. But you have to prepare your pocket 😊

Lovely coffee shop in which you can find the best hot chocolates in Switzerland. The place is really nice, cosy, and you always have a good time in there. If you're looking for a nice place to take a break, it is definitely the place to go in Morges!

Very nice atmosphere, you feel like to be in India. Interiour very personal. Le café Balzac offers the best cream cakes in Switzerland. Thin and light, they are delicious with almonds. On sunday morning they have the famous brunch. A nice place just to relax.

If you're looking for average, absurdly overpriced, poorly cooked food served in tiny portions by inexperienced staff struggling to cope with small numbers of diners, go to Balzac. I was very unhappy with my dish: a thin layer of overcooked rice grains spread over the plate with a line of 6 small prawns and four tiny clusters of vegetables. 30chf.... More

Make sure to include this on your list of places to go! It's excellent for the beautiful selection of hot chocolates. The salads are super, as are most dishes on the menu that I've tried. They do a great weekend brunch - go with an appetite! - but you need to reserve ahead of time. The service can sometimes be... More
