I wish so much I could go back. The food was excellent after a beautiful afternoon walking around Riederalp. My husband said the beer was top notch. Honestly, we had stopped at another restaurant earlier and got up and left because no one seemed to wait on us. So we decided to try the Tea Room which we noticed on... More

After an hour long but easy hike on the snow covered road from Bettmeralp, I entered the Zurschmitten Tea Room in Riederalp for lunch. I chose a seat on the terrace and, warmed by the sun, ordered mushroom soup and hot tea. The hearty soup with fresh bread was even better because of the welcoming, English speaking employee who diplomatically... More

This tea room was a short walk from the cable car terminal in Riederalp. It had its own bakery. I went in to have tea after hiking. I sat outside on the deck, facing the alps....so beautiful and relaxing! I highly recommend it!

The tea-room has its own bakery, so you could try the freshly-made cake or pastry together with a cup of coffee here while watching the beautiful environment and the... More

This restaurant or rather team room has its own bakery. So you can either pick an item from the menu or just walk over to the bakery and pick a cake or pastery. It's a cozy place for breakfast or an afternoon snack. And it is conveniently located near the gondola station Riederalp Mitte.

Enjoyed a little rest sipping tea with a pastry. Went in the afternoon and just watched the people and the aroma of the room. Take a break and enjoy.

Right next to the cable car station on Riederalp you will find the only bakery of the place - Zurschmitten - which has a coffee shop attached to it. A warm and cosy place to get breakfast (their "gipfeli" are pretty good), small lunches or - if you have a sweet tooth - coffee and pastry in the afternoon. There... More
