This, right here, is a shop unlike any other in Lausanne. Sophie and her team opened the doors of La Confiserie two years ago, but its interior transports you to a different era entirely. Slightly reminiscent of a 1950s candy store (you know the one where your grandparents would purchase a bag of gumdrops for a nickel?), La Confiserie is quaint and kitschy in all of the right ways.
Don’t let its small size fool you, as La Confiserie boasts a large menu with a variety of homemade salads, soups, baked potatoes, sandwiches, and desserts. It’s a perfect place for a quick bite on-the-go (though there are two tables inside the cozy shop, where we couldn’t help but nestle in for a cup of coffee and cake citron)–just be prepared to encounter a crowd during the peak lunch hours…though the short wait will be worth it. Trust us.
For lunch, we were able to enjoy one of their popular salads packed with small shrimp, courgette, mango, and black rice, all topped off with a sesame balsamic dressing–it was delightful and surprisingly filling. Their top seller? The moelleux aux marrons, which is actually gluten-free (though you don’t need to have a wheat allergy to enjoy it!).
Their items are all freshly made in-house, and change according to each season, so check back regularly to see what’s new!
Looking for a quality traiteur with the home-made touch? La Confiserie will also cater for your next event, just inquire within for details.
So when you’re out and about in town, or on your lunch break, we highly recommend popping in to La Confiserie to pick up a freshly made sandwich, salad, or sweet treat and coffee for a little afternoon perk. Just be mindful of the hours as well as the fact that you will want more than one dessert.
