The Terrasse

Feast your eyes on our lush Garden, the splendour of Lake Geneva and the Vevey quayside as you savour refreshing drinks, waffles, ice creams and much more... Our Terrasse is set to become one of the most popular spots on the Riviera this summer!


Top tip! The Terrasse is open from 25 April to 04 October 2020 (Tuesday to Sunday, noon to 18:00 and Saturdays 10:00 to 18:00).

The Café

The comfortable armchairs in our calm, light and spacious lounge are great for just sitting back and relaxing as you enjoy our range of drinks (coffee, fruit juices, wines, etc.), seasonal treats, salads and hot or cold sweet or savoury snacks. There are plenty of fun and educational magazines and books lying around too, for you to leaf through should you wish! Not forgetting our nearby Shop, a real treasure trove...
