I've been here dozens of times for lunch. There is always a great selection of freshly prepared local food, fruit juices, cakes etc. The fruit salad is a favourite of mine. It's good value too.

Plentiful, flexible choices of a range of good quality fresh food. Self-service, very casual but not a cheap choice unless you restrict your selection.

Very nice self-service type of restaurant. Huge variety of meals to choose from. I really enjoyed freshly cooked pasta there. Considering it is in Switzerland the prices were reasonable.

Crowded bistro type of restaurant, though the food is really good and has a high variety of choice for it's price. Perfect place to grab a quick lunch with friends or family, they offer everything from grill to home made type of food.
