Café Romand information
Hidden in an unpromising looking arcade, this Lausanne legend dating to 1951 is a welcome blast from the past. Everyone from bankers to punks pours into the broad, somewhat sombre dining area littered with timber tables to gorge on fondue, cervelle au beurre noir (brains in black butter), tripe, pied de porc (pork trotters) and other feisty traditional dishes. Simple omelettes (between Sfr11 and Sfr14), sandwiches (Sfr7) and soups ensure all tastes are catered for. The kitchen operates all day, rare for this town.
