Quaint restaurant/ coffee shop. Gives you the old time feel and really felt this is a local gathering spot. My quiche was delicious and so was my hot chocolate. The desserts looked amazing.

This is a great place for a lunch or coffee date, centrally located in downtown Lucerne. It is usually full at lunchtime, so it is good to reserve ahead of time. The price/value ratio is very good, the food consistently good. Be sure to try their trademark quiche or cornish hen at least once; there is a daily changing menu special too. The service is sometimes slow, but they never rush their customers so you can take your time enjoying the food and conversation.

First floor restaurant is very comfortable, with newspapers etc. and well spaced tables. Lovely coffee/cakes etc. in cabinet and extremely well presented and educated staff. Our waiter spoke 6 languages!! We thought it so lovely that we went back a few days later for lunch.

there is a little terrace overlooking the square and if lucky you can sit with a glass of wine and enjoy the lovely views over the lake and watch the world go by.

We ate dinner one evening and lunch the next day because the food was very good and the prices were reasonable. It is on the second floor with a nice view of the lake. They get busy and you might need reservations at peak times. The quiche was the best I ever had, large portion and low priced, highly recommend and great waitress.

This one of the good restaurants in swiss, food is good, services a little bit less services, we do believe because an Easter holiday, for the price it's expensive. Recommended food is mushroom with bread and Norwegian salmon.
