Restaurants + Cafés

Bottle Lausanne: Café des Philosophes

An urban bar and restaurant with an upscale and regional menu–this is a spot where all are welcome to take a seat, a sip & a bite, and enjoy.

Un Po’ di Più Trattoria

A ‘twisted’ trattoria that is familiar, friendly, and offers authentic Italian dishes in the heart of Lausanne.

Sleepy Bear Coffee Shop

From roasting to preparation, everything is carried out with the greatest of care for the craft of coffee.

Grotto2

Dine under a canopy of lush trees, listen to the sound of water rushing below. It’s not a cave, but it certainly feels isolated in the best way.

Le CouCou Hotel & Restaurant

For that special occasion, or just to change your perspective and take a deep inhale of some fresh mountain air, consider Le CouCou. It’s a culinary exploration with a significant side of beauty.

L’Ulivo

A sidewalk restaurant hidden in plain sight. If you want authentic Italian flavors with a side of friendly service, look no further.

L’Impression

A neighborhood bistro that’s worth the trip even if you don’t live around the corner. Here, we take our time and enjoy every bite.

A Love Letter to Latin America: Lucha Libre

Wanderlust but no where to go? Let your itchy feet guide you to Rue Marterey where the fiesta is on, all year long.

Sardine

Travel may be on hold, but a simple stroll up to La Cité is enough to whisk you away, if only for a night.

The Great Pizza Hunt of Lausanne 2019

It’s a hard job, but someone’s gotta do it. We took three Italian friends and ate our weight in pizza around Lausanne.

Vaga Bon Café

It’s as if the clock moves a bit slower here–the pace is refreshingly measured, offering moments to take in the details, to sip slowly.

Auberge de l’Abbaye de Montheron

As if the charming location and edifice aren’t enough, it’s the ethos and spirit of this Auberge that really makes it special.
