Hi, my name’s Carla and I'm 25 years old. In my leisure time I like reading, getting tattoos (yes, you could definitely say so), watching and performing theatrical improvisation, finding new emerging artists for the Pop Up Mag webzine that I co-manage, checking out new restaurants, travelling (of course!), drawing, buying one more “new” vintage dish too many... I grew up in Lausanne and my heart will remain here even though I like to move around and will soon be going to study in Lyon and Brussels. It's when you're away from it that you realise that Lausanne may be small, but it's a great place to live!
« My Lausanne is: getting lost in the charming streets of the Cité district; feeling the pulsating energy of its numerous events, both large and small; walking from Croisettes through the Hermitage to Ouchy; drinking a few beers on the terrace of the Great Escape in summer; hunting for rare oddities at the Place de la Riponne market; going back in time to my childhood while eating crêpes at La Chandeleur; reading a book in Parc de Mon-Repos..." »
Wonderful programming for children and adults alike, acclaimed by the critics, with theatrical improvisation, concerts and festivals, the City Club’s associative team doesn’t remain idle! Come and enjoy the cinema’s legendary sitting comfort, and from there, it just gets better.
Amateur or just curious, set off on a discovery of funny, bewildering, fascinating, intriguing or even disturbing creations. Our favourite? Undoubtedly Lausanne artist Aloïse and her lovely ladies with large blue eyes that have always made me dream. You won’t come out of it unchanged.
I appreciate it for its attachment to the local scene, its commitment to the neighbourhood and its rich programming. The place is both a springboard for young artists and a stage for acknowledged personalities. Among the unmissables of the Lausanne scene.
Did you know? Café Dalat occupies the bar of the former funicular that linked Lausanne to the Signal de Sauvabelin. This is a place with an unconventional atmosphere with its chubby, smiling Buddhas and the famous Vietnamese garnished rice wafers. Beware: do book ahead as it’s in high demand!
Located right on the border between city and countryside, Rovéréaz Farm offers us a variety of products (fruit, vegetables, oils, cheese, honey, cured meats, eggs...), and everything is fresh and seasonal, of course! I invite you to take a look at their outstanding permaculture programme that combines both cooperative and educational approaches.
There's always a spot on your table for these delectable specialities from French-speaking Switzerland! André Macheret opened his shop in the city centre in 1995, and since then he has been selling his products at the Riponne market (I still remember being given a slice of cheese as a child after our purchases were made. It was pure magic.). Half-and-half fondue, meringues, double cream from Gruyère, Le Maréchal, Tomme Fleurette, etc., are all local and absolutely lovely!
Very often filled to capacity in the evening, I had never dared to visit this restaurant until recently. But once I finally took the plunge, this eatery shot to the top of my list of favourites. Finally, we have some sophisticated South American cuisine and finally something other than burgers in Lausanne! You've got the idea: Make reservations, order a ceviche (or something else, everything is good!) and ENJOY!
Especially popular with local residents and visitors to the Collection de l’Art Brut, this bar-restaurant is a welcome new discovery. The large terrace offers shade in the summer in a peaceful setting, and the interior is cosy (although perhaps just a bit noisy). Perfect for eating/enjoying a drink after a visit to the art museum!
Chailly is not the most dynamic part of Lausanne but this ice cream has definitely changed the way I look at my neighbourhood. Sesame, matcha, fior di latte, ooooh, I’m melting. In my humble opinion, this is the best ice cream (light and refreshing instead of overly creamy!) in Lausanne.
The sandwiches at Sucré Salé are, in my view, the best in the region. They energised me during my studies with an outstanding menu and the famous sandwich of the month. No wonder they won the gold medal at the Sandwich World Cup in 2016 in Paris with "El Chimbobazo" (quinoa bread, cod, escabeche, chimichurri de huacatay).
