This café iin the heart of the Mon-Repos park s very popular with the inhabitants of Lausanne.
Mon-Repos is one of Lausanne’s most beautiful parks offering aviaries elegant buildings and lawns that invite you to a stroll. There used to be a theatre too, featuring Voltaire’s plays during one of the writer’s visits in the capital of Vaud.
