This is a very cute cafe with friendly staff. The hot chocolate here is rumored to be the best in Schaffhausen, and after having tasted it, I understand why.

Unfortunately, not really. We use nuts in almost everything. Salads would be fine but most children don't want this. Sorry!

All the food they serve is vegetarian. So they serve humus pita, salads, spinach-, cheese-, tomatoquiche, soups and so on. They also have plenty different cakes and sweet food.

Lovely, traditional café located in the Old Town. Since 1968, this family-run business not only offers a large range of different coffees, teas, homemade cakes and pastries, but also vegetarian dishes for lunch. A place to linger with a large choice of newspapers and magazines.
