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.
