One of the best Latte Macchiato in town for a really affordable price. The very friendly staff and the nice decoration give to this place a very nice atmosphere:

Pointu is two floors below my home so it was surprising how long it took me to get there for a meal. Lots of strong points. The selection of wines are lovely. The staff super warm. And for Switzerland, the prices are quite reasonable. But don't go here expecting to have a full meal. The menu is primarily comprised of... More

Very nice place. Go for a Sunday brunch. Everything is homemade and delicious. The tartine with avocado and the benedicte eggs are awesome. Would be nice to have brunch menu proposals including drinks.

Great place for brunch but a booking is essential. If only it opened earlier. Earliest booking is 11 on a Sunday. This said the coffee is possibly the best in Lausanne. Definitely recommend it!

First time for me at Le Pointu and I decided to go for a Sunday brunch. I really loved the place: it's simple, but "warm", the space is well used and the colours are neutral and relaxing.
