We went there to have a cup of coffee and a piece of cake with 2 friends. The waitress threw the plates at us like I have never seen this before! Then we realized she took the order wrong. She agreed on changing it without any apology though. When came the time to pay, she didn't want us to pay... More

Walking through old town, this was a perfect stop. Soup, cake, and staff were all wonderful and welcoming.

This coffee shop is inviting and cozy and the cakes are very tasty. However, the staff is extremely unfriendly: When ordering our cakes, the service lady seemed disinterested and arrogant. When asking for the bill, she did not grant me and my friend the discount we were entitled to because of our bank card (STUCARD) and simply stated that we... More

Me and my boyfriend stopped here for lunch. Staff were very friendly and found us a table even though it was quite busy. I had a kind of Greek salad with house dressing which was generous and just right after a carb heavy New Year's Eve meal the night before. The hot chocolate didn't come with cream and all that...

Went here for a muffin and café latte. The space is cramped and service very slow. The waitress who served me was nice but she simply had too many to serve at once. Free complimentary WiFi. Pricey (£10.60) but expected in Switzerland.

Their cakes are just not baked well. Cheap ingredients and not baked to the end. They offer Blechkuchen which is supposed to be a nice cake made from yeast. But instead you get a cake that is made from a cheap dough and does not taste at all. The staff member was overwhelmed all the time and could not catch... More

We have gone here 2x now and really enjoyed this little dessert shop in Zurich. Sitting out on the sofas and benches with the blankets is a great way to enjoy a time together. The hot chocolate is pretty good as well.

That used to be one of my favorite spots. The last three times I've been there, I had the same problem. It was understaffed and the personnel was grumpy. My dessert was actually so bad that I couldn't finish it. The wifi also didn't work. I complained but didn't even get an apology. Not coming back.
