Lausanne à Table I Événements gourmands de mai à décembre

Lausanne à Table propose plus de 30 événements gourmands, festifs et décalés de mai à décembre !

The Salée au Sucre Trot

From mid-May to June, many of you took to the streets of Lausanne for the Trotte de la Salée au Sucre (The Salty to Sweet Trot), a tribute to this emblem of Vaud’s culinary heritage. 

For those with a sweet tooth who didn’t have the time to (re)discover the 10 participating bakeries, we’ve put together a refresher course, starting with the trio of winners. We’d like to congratulate all the bakeries, and all the taste buds for their participation!

Chez Séverine & Luca (Salée au sucre d’Or)

Participants in our 2021 Carathon probably remember the creative white carac. Its salée au sucre is a classic, with generous slices and a hint of caramel. An individual version is also available with a touch of coffee for the more adventurous (macchiato cream tartlet).

In another register, their butter flûtes (breadsticks) were gold medalists at the first World Flûte Championships, organized by the Confrérie vaudoise des Chevaliers du bon pain (The Vaud Brotherhood of Knights of Good Bread) in June 2023.

Chez Séverine & Luca / Avenue de la Gare 2 / Monday-Friday 6am-6pm


Le Romantica (Salée au sucre d’Argent)

As a certificate in the window attests, their salée à la crème (salted with cream) won a Gold Medal at a competition in 2005 and has since remained one of the stars of this tea-room near the train station, open on Sundays. You can also enjoy their salées au sucre (salted with sugars), made with a thick layer of cream and a hint of caramel; up to 8 slices are waiting patiently to be purchased.

Le Romantica / Boulevard de Grancy 24 / Monday-Friday 6am-18:30 and Sunday 7am-17pm


Confiserie Christian Boillat (Salée au sucre de Bronze)

The salted cream with a layer of liquid cream is served here in individual sizes or in larger portions to share (22, 27, or 31cm for those with a sweet tooth).

Confiserie Christian Boillat / rue Enning 4 / Monday-Friday 7am-6.30pm and Saturday 8am-5pm or place de la Navigation 18 in Ouchy / Monday-Friday 7:30am-6:30pm and Saturday-Sunday 7:30am-6pm


Maison Buet

Offered in slices, the cream cake at this location stands out from the rest with its saffron-scented leavened dough beneath a beautiful layer of cream.

Maison Buet / rue Grand-Saint-Jean 6 /Monday-Friday 6am-6:30pm and Saturday 6am-6pm


Noz Chocolatier

With its pretty dough sprinkled with sugar for a slightly crunchy effect, this chocolate-bakery’s salée au sucre is best enjoyed while sitting on the friendly yellow deckchairs in front of the shop window, for the feel of a vacation on Rue Marterey.

Noz Chocolatier / Rue Marterey 11 / Monday-Friday 6:30am-7pm and Saturday 7am-5:30pm


Confiserie Nessi

For La Trotte, this bakery had the good idea of offering an individual, sugar-coated savory pastry, more convenient to eat than its classic slices, which of course remain on the menu. A light dough and a fine balance of textures come together for this great Vaud classic.

Confiserie Nessi / Avenue du Temple 65 / Monday-Friday 6:30am-6:30pm and Saturday 6:30am-5pm


Chez Rado Bugnon

Above the M2 Ours metro stop, this bakery with a local tea-room offers both sliced and individual versions of salted with sugars, with an airy, fluffy layer of sweet cream.

Chez Rado Bugnon / Rue du Bugnon 6 / Monday-Friday 6:30am-6:30pm and Saturday 7am-2pm


Boulangerie des Bergières

Open 7/7, this neighborhood restaurant is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2023. Its salée au sucrecomes in a slightly sweet pastry in its individual version and a more traditional pastry in its large-sliced version. When we asked the owner what was so special about it, she simply replied “it’s the best in Lausanne, of course”!

Boulangerie des Bergières / Avenue Bergières 30 / Monday-Friday 6:30am-6pm, Saturday-Sunday 7am-1pm


Monco’Pain

Next door to La Romantica, this century-old address is known far and wide for its buttery flûtes, which can be eaten even when not hungry. Its particularly generous slices of salée au sucre greet customers directly at the entrance, next to the Gâteau de Goumoëns (Goumoëns cake).

Monco’Pain / Boulevard de Grancy 26 / Monday-Friday 6am-7pm and Saturday 6am-5pm


Le petit coin gourmand

A popular little tea-room with a terrace where local employees, families, and retirees come together to chat, this little gourmet corner offers breads, pastries and cakes 7/7. Its salée au sucre is composed of a generous proportion of sweet dough surrounding a heart of cream.

Le Petit Coin Gourmand / Monday-Friday 6:30am-6:30pm, Saturday 6:30am-5pm and Sunday 6:30am-2pm

The Trotte de la Salée au Sucre was organized in partnership with the  l’APBCV.
