The must-see terraces in Vaud this summer

Written by

The fine weather is here and this means eating outdoors. To celebrate summer, here's an article dedicated to the coolest terraces in the canton of Vaud. Discover these exceptional places and let yourself be tempted.

The Impression café and restaurant in Lausanne

The Impression is an ideal place to meet with colleagues for a lunch break or with friends for a Sunday brunch. The terrace offers a cocooning and relaxed atmosphere to enjoy the first rays of sunshine!

The menu offers a tempting daily menu and hearty brunch, so that you don't know what to choose. Moreover, if you liked the restaurant, you have the possibility to buy their famous tea or even to offer a gift voucher to one of your relatives to discover this place.


The KymèM in Vevey

Looking for an unusual and offbeat place? Go to the KymèM café! An unusual place full of colour and life where you'll find morning and lunch formulas as well as brunches.

The KymèM café has also launched several innovative initiatives. For example, the lunch menu is CHF 20.00 but CHF 1.00 is donated to climate initiatives. This is a simple way for each of us to participate in this cause while enjoying a meal at a reasonable price.

In addition, this place offers activities such as the "vide dressing" which takes place several weekends in the summer. On this occasion, you can enjoy a brunch on the terrace while giving a second life to the things you no longer need. A great fun and eco-responsible initiative not to be missed this summer! Don't hesitate to visit their website to find out more.


L'Esquisse in Lausanne

For lovers of nature and gastronomy, this is the place for you. A little corner of paradise located in the flowery gardens of Lausanne which will allow you to get away from the city. It's located next to the Hermitage art museum which is handy for anyone looking for culture as well as fine dining. 

In addition to participating in the climate initiative, this restaurant, with its small but appetizing menu, offers Swiss products and favours local producers. Brunch is organised every weekend, an opportunity to spend a pleasant moment with friends or family in an idyllic setting. Discover their tasty and beautiful dishes on their Instagram or website!

The Mont Pelerin Chalet

Situated high in the Swiss countryside, Chalet du Mont-Pèlerin is surrounded by breathtaking scenery. You will not be able to get enough of the view of Lake Geneva and the mountains of the Alps. Between fondue and röstis, the Chalet du Mont-Pèlerin makes a point of offering local and traditional products.

Like most of the restaurants mentioned, thanks to the large space and the unusual setting, the Chalet offers several types of events: parties, birthdays, or others, do not hesitate to call on them for any festivities or simply to enjoy a meal in the foreground of the lake!
