Eat Me, Lausanne

  Lausanne may be a small provincial town but boasts of an international outward-looking spirit.  The Eat Me restaurant is testament to this spirit, serving the “world on small plates” dim-sum or taco-style.  I would often walk by the restaurant and see it crowded.  It was only recently that I went in and tried their 8-course… Read More »

Romain C, Lausanne

  If you have a soft spot for pastries like me, you must absolutely drop in at Romain C. in Lausanne.  I discovered the place  thanks to a friend, Emilie, who invited me for lunch not saying much except “tu ne le connais pas, tu vas l’adorer“ (you don’t know it but you are going to love… Read More »

Mango Deck, Lausanne

If you enjoy eating healthy food like I do, there are regrettably only a few eating-out options in Switzerland. One in Lausanne and Geneva is Mango Deck.  They offer only healthy and well-balanced food following traditional recipes with quality fresh ingredients.  Their speciality is to steam almost every dish and hence has no added-fat. Mango… Read More »

My Instagram or Snapchat (@blaastyle) posts let on how I love to hang out at le Café des Artisans in Lausanne. They are a family business run by brother and sister team, Amaya and Iggy who welcome each visitor like a friend. I usually like to go in the late afternoon or evening. But Inés… Read More »

Le Kiosque, Lausanne

This small structure called Le Kiosque at St-François Place in the middle of Lausanne is a century old with a storied past. It was built in 1896 of wood in a style inspired by the “Swiss Chalet”. It began life as a newspaper kiosk and waiting room for tramway passengers. Between 1911 and 1913, it… Read More »

BlackBird Cafe, Lausanne

There are many places in Lausanne for good coffee and breakfast. However, I had one of my best pancakes in a recently opened Black Bird Cafe. It reminds me of a café I stumbled into in Amsterdam. The charming interior with re-modernized vintage furniture is bathed in natural light, making it also a pleasant place… Read More »

Pictures by Inès Monnet Lausanne in the summer offers all the perks of its waterfront location. After a stroll in the charming uptown shopping area, you can head south to the lakeside for a small “getaway” where you laze on a beach with an ice-cream, or engage in something more social or active like doing… Read More »

Pictures by Inès Monnet Downtown Lausanne has more than its fair share of slopes and cobblestone pavements. Hence, I avoid heels in town for the better of not falling over. Even if you manage to stay upright, your shoes usually end up damaged. Anyhow, why bother. Lausanne is a university town – it is perfectly… Read More »

Pictures by Inès Monnet How do you find the very very short mini shorts? I tried them for the first time and I must admit I felt self-conscious like going out in your underwear. It should be fine for a beach-type outing and you will never find me on heels with these. I picked up… Read More »

Free and Easy Sunday

Pictures by Inès Monnet Like for most of you, Sunday is my lazy day to feel snug (as a bug in a rug) with zero fancy makeup. If I need to stroll downtown, I will go for a cool girly outfit. Here I layer a Topshop denim jacket over an old white Sandro dress. I… Read More »
