Fried egg on a savory bacon&onion pancake ? Sign me in right away!! Unfortunately the egg was overcooked (no runny yummy yolk to spread on the pancake) but the pancake was perfectly done! Ask for some cheese and it may top your Brunch Dish list. I loved the playlist and atmosphere - reminded me of Brooklyn. Friendly service (ask for... More

This place has a Berlin feeling as some of the places in this changing area. Serves nice little dishes and good beer.

Zum Guten Gluck has long been a favourite of mine and my girlfriend's for a great weekend morning pancake (sweet or savoury) and a good coffee.

We ordered three pancakes - 1 sweet (apple and cinnamon) and 2 savoury (ham and eggs, ricotta, spinach and pine nuts), and the glück waffle. The ham and eggs pancakes and the waffle were good, but the other 2 was mediocre. Still a good place to come and eat though, the staff are friendly too!

Went for brunch on a Sunday morning with a friend. This is a busy and popular place, so reserve if you require a table. We sat at the bar initially with our coffees and teas and ordered some pancakes and waffles - you can have them sweet or salty and they are worth the visit. The atmosphere is lovely and... More

Enjoyed their pancakes with a nice tea of fresh mint! I will definitely come back sometime to try their poffertjes and waffles :)

I just got back from a Sunday brunch and I think I will not go back to that place again. It took us 15 mins just to have the waiters' attention to ask if we had to wait right there or if they had some kind of waiting list. Food is absolutely nothing special and stuff simply ignore you. At... More

Its a very relaxed, cozy place, fitting right into the neighborhood. There is some outdoor seating available. Its half self-service, you order and pay at the bar, your food is brought to the table when ready. For Zürich it is a good choice if you are looking for a decent all-day breakfast but don't want to go for for the... More

Went there for a casual Sunday afternoon coffee and crepe. Menu looks ok, you get average crepes from 10.-!The service, however, is just terrible!The waiter(s) actually let you wait at the bar (you need to order at the bar), since things seem to be very unorganized. Furthermore, when we wanted to split our bill the waiter acted like that this... More
