One of Lausanne's most popular restaurants, this Italian eatery has lots of character, charm and most importantly, a friendly staff. The place gets busy, although there is no need to book for a family of four or less. Choose to dine indoors or out on the large street terrace, another reason for the restaurant's popularity. The menu consists of all main Italian dishes, and is reasonably priced.
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.
