Nestled in the heart of Lausanne's Rotillon district, The Sweet Sage isn't just a patisserie; it's a serene sanctuary where indulgence meets well-being. Opened in mid-October by the delightful duo of Alix Marin and Thibaut Honajzer, former pastry chef of the esteemed Restaurant Anne-Sophie Pic at the Beau-Rivage Palace in Lausanne, this elegant space exudes comfort and charm.

Alix welcomes guests with such kindness and knowledge, while Thibaut, the 29-year-old Auvergne native, just in the open workshop next to us, weaves his culinary magic inspired by childhood memories and a commitment to natural ingredients.

The charm of The Sweet Sage lies in its celebration of herbs and nature, evident in everything from the thirty herbal teas to the desserts that grace the window. The name itself, a nod to a shared moment between Thibaut and Alix involving a sage infusion, reflects the personal touch woven into the fabric of this pastry haven.


Thibaut's creations are a testament to his sensitivity and artistry. Childhood memories come to life in delightful offerings like the rice pudding, inspired by his mother's recipe, emphasizing vanilla and rice.

In a city that is consistently growing and innovating and becoming more dynamic, The Sweet Sage stands out as a haven for those seeking a delicate balance between indulgence and well-being. Alix and Thibaut invite you to savor their delightful menu, the warmth of their hospitality, and the artistry that transforms a pastry shop into a transcendent experience.
