When in Lausanne I always go here, if only for a coffee. Nice, relaxing place, the waiters always make you feel welcome. One can sit indoors or on the pavement in front of the large doors. Although the building has hardly changed for two centuries (apart from the two top floors that were added in the 20th century) nothing reminds... More

Nice location, it's a very nice place for a drink. Nice dehor in summer, a lot of young people till late. When you order a drink, an aperitif they don't have any chips or nuts. Could be better.

Happy Days is a chill place with cosy atmosphere and alright food. The dishes are alright although nothing special, food you can get in pretty much any bar/restaurant but certainly not bad. For grabbing beers in summer and relaxing with friends this is great but nothing that you couldn't find anywhere else, especially in lausanne. The location is nice which... More

Great place for an after work drink, however it wouldn't be my kind of place to have a romantic night or a family one. Perfect for a friend's night out.

Ok place for an afterwork, although you'll see that the crowd goes to either Etoile BLanche or Saint Pierre (next door). Good thing is that you can always manage to find a table! The mini burgers they propose as tapas/finger food are delicious!!! Even better that the "normal size" burgers they have on their menu.

Awful food - I ordered a veggie burger and got some frozen vegetables in a bun!, French fries were awful and not cooked properly! Worst meal I have had. Waitress never asked was food ok, especially when she took a whole uneaten meal back!

I have been there several times and the last really confirmed what I thought. The spirit is nice, it's perfect to drink a beer or a good wine but you don't get much out of what you order to eat. We got the Christmas burger which only included some foie gras and no meat...

The service is always misleading: first they gave you the menu from "Longhorn Steakhouse" (prices are the double), you have to ask for the "happy days" menu. Second prices change from menu to menu and some dishes don't even have the price. Entries are very pricy and bad (e.g. 6 frozen onions rings for 10chf). If you go to happydays... More
