Our hearts skipped a beat when we walked into Le Kiosque for the first time. What once served as a counter for buying bus tickets has been transformed into a charming little café, perfectly situated in the center of Lausanne’s busy St. François square. There’s something so enchanting about an old space finding its heart and soul and being appreciated again. This little gem of Lausanne past has even reclaimed its old clock, reinstalled after years in the history museum. Swoon!
The menu is composed of a classic selection of café beverages as well as soups, sandwiches and salads (all of which are under 10 chf (!) ). Seats are available at about six tables situated along the curved banquette against the wall, so diners cozy up next to one another rather than sitting across a table.
We’re looking forward to many coffee dates and light lunches together in this Lausanne icon!
