Small, kind of fund down place. The latte was well prepared with good flavor, but wasn't very hot. Croissant was a bit stale on a Sunday morning. Friendly people.

Just picked up a takeaway coffee from Grande - one of my usual coffee stops - only to discover blood on the lid of the coffee cup, presumably from a cut finger. Not the most pleasant start for a morning coffee, and disappointing to see that basic hygiene is not observed. Will go elsewhere for my morning coffee from now... More

The best espresso I've ever tasted and I'm not exaggerating. This little rustic coffee shop is from now on my first port of call after landing at Zurich airport Kloten. The waiters wear dickey-bows and look very cool. The coffee though could be supplied in an old rusty tin and would still be the best I've ever tasted, thankfully they... More
