The "Red Angel" is in a quiet little cobblkestone square with a central fountain just off one of Basel's main shopping streets. It is very relaxed. One places and picks up one's orders form the counter. In the summer, there is a large outside terrace...More

A lovely little square off the main center. A place to stop, have a drink, a bit to eat. Sometimes people are playing music. A place locals go on a Sunday.

We visited there while walking on Altstadt's streets. Nice live music sound came from in front of it. I guess it is student cafe because everybody was sitting with their notes. You should buy your order from inside and took your dished again to inside

I'm sure this would be lovely Spring/summer. Cobbled courtyard setting. We just stopped for a drink. It's self service. You go in, order your drink and carry it out if you want to sit outside. Blankets supplied for the cold days.
