This is one of the old (1960's) bistro / cafés in Lausanne. The people that run it might not speak English but they are very sweet. The food is simple but not expensive and very good, all made from scratch (apart from traditional Swiss pastries from the area of course). In the summer or warmer days they have a huge... More
