Simply one of the best places in Lausanne to grab a cup of coffee, Blackbird Café has also developed an extensive “Breakfast Club” menu full of creative snacks that are suitable for all times of day, but best taken in the mornings. The big banana breakfast shake is very popular, as are breakfast wraps, omelets, and frittatas. There are also many teas, freshly pressed juices, and hot chocolates to choose from. The funky café is split into two levels, with the upstairs room usually reserved for those looking to sit down for a meal. The coffee, which is revered locally, is roasted on-site.
Situated on a quiet street in a quaint neighborhood, Cafè de Grancy is one of Lausanne’s most popular cafés, and bustles with activity morning, afternoon, and night. The café is most popular for afternoon drinks and weekend brunches, which include beef tartare, the cheeseburger de Grancy, and some interesting vegetable plates. Cozy and comfortable, the café is perfect for a rainy day reading in a comfortable chair or playing board games. Fondue nights during the week are a particularly good treat. Dinner reservations are recommended.
This restaurant in the center of Lausanne is a great place to begin a Sunday morning with coffee and a book, and end up with a nice meal and few drinks during the evening. The restaurant has a curious theme of frog and princess stories, which is where its name, which means “The Gold Crown,” comes from. The place has been around since the 19th century, and a lot of its charm comes from pieces of mismatched old-school furniture and its beautiful antique bar. Armies of young professionals crowd the tables on mornings when popular brunches are served.
