only for authentic chocolate lovers

Just taste it, and you'll want more, the real savour of chocolate. You'll love it and so will your friends who receive it. A perfect present.

True to every comment and review I read before going, this place is just definitely Not a MISS. though expensive, the pleasure you derive in seeing the hosts handling and packing the chocolates with so much love and care, is unimaginable. a small place so generally waiting time is long. truffles and centre filled chocs... what i bought for my...

This is the kind of place that add sweetness to your life! A bit expensive, but it's totally worth it!!!! It's paradise for the eyes, the nose, and the mouth! If you have to choose only one place to go in Lausanne, go there!!

I love walking past this shop when the door opens and you are immediately hit by a wonderful chocolate aroma wafting into the street. When you enter the store you are met by an old fashioned long wooden counter and an array of delicious and sometimes surprising treats. For me this is the best chocolate in the Lausanne region!

While people who live in Lausanne often take Blondel chocolate as a welcome gift when invited to an evening dinner, the lucky tourists who fall on this shop often get a life-time experience when they go here. This is not to miss if you like chocolate.

I loved the dark chocolate with sea salt and dark chocolate with orange that I bought here! A little bit pricey, about 9.80 francs for 100g of slab chocolate, but absolutely worth it and worth the trek uphill to get it!

Superb handmade chocolates - among the best I have ever tasted. Very pleasant staff willing to provide useful recommendations and then efficiently wrap your purchase. The long line of locals provided further proof of this chocolatier's popularity.

My coworker brought back a small box of Blondel chocolates after a recent business trip to Switzerland. He kept emphasizing how expensive they were and how this was the best place for chocolates in Switzerland. I was unimpressed. A Swiss chocolate bar from the local grocery store would have been equivalent. I'm looking at these reviews and wondering if he... More

Simply the best chocolatier in Lausanne. But you must be patient as this is a tiny shop and sometimes customers are queuing outside to enter. But it is worth it.
