The heat wave this summer had us looking for methods to survive the days after several weeks of sleepless nights. One of our favorite ways was searching Lausanne for our favorite iced coffees. Chilled with caffeine? Now that's a win-win. Here are our favorite places for iced coffees here in Lausanne:
Known for breaking boundaries in cuisine and design, this local spot not only provides coffee and innovative lunch options for Lausannois, but is also an atelier/workspace for creatives. Grab an iced coffee with fluffy milk foam, and why not stay for a soft serve (their flavors are constantly changing!)?
One of the OGs of specialty coffee here in Lausanne with one of the most gorgeous interiors in the city and some of the friendliest baristas as well, it’s our go-to spot to get lifted in spirits (and energy). Try their iced mocha, or iced chai lattes – made with love and intention, you won’t find a taste like this anywhere else in Lausanne.
Ordinary Man Coffee
Roasted on-site, you’re not going to get much fresher coffee in Lausanne. We highly recommend the iced coffee prepared with oat milk – it’s balanced and has a rich yet refreshing taste. While there, check out the art on the walls featuring local artists and photographers.
Yes, their iced coffees are amazing but try their iced chai latte if you want something with a kick. Diana imports special African spices to add a bit more depth to the chai, and shares our love for less sweet drinks. It’s perfectly balanced and refreshing for these hot summer days.
The Greek Project
Also known as The Coffee Project, these guys know their way around coffee and have some of the best iced cappuccinos and Greek Frappés in town. Got time for lunch? Order a Souvlaki – you will not regret it.
