Let us tempt you, during the week, with our seasonal menu, our menu of the day or our desserts, prepared (according to availability) using the vegetables, aromatic herbs and fruits from the historic kitchen garden of the Château de Prangins. The café’s panoramic terrace is ideally situated, offering an unlimited view over the extensive park of the estate.

On Sundays, enjoy the famous brunch buffet at your leisure (booking highly recommended). If, on the other hand, you would like to organise a dinner, banquet or cocktail reception for a group of 20 or more guests, the Café du Château and its magnificent terrace can be privately booked for the evening (up to 60 seats inside; on the terrace, capacity for 150 people, standing).
