alternative collective Restaurant. Very good vegetarian/vegan food, cooked with passion and imagination and with an eye on prices. A place to be if you want to live the informal political & cultural Basel scene.

Very nice place to have a drink or a few, the environment is not classy, so if you are searching for something like that, just skip this. Very nice service, good music, prices ok for Basel.

I had brunch at Restaurant Hirscheneck many times, and I always enjoy it enough to come back. Nevertheless the brunch is ok, nothing special, and surely overpriced. It helps the fact that Basel on sunday is a dead place with almost everything closed.

This is a local hangout where the tables are shared, and it's best to go in with either a knowledge of German and the history of left-liberal politics or both. The reward is an atmosphere of community, and tasty homebaked treats. There were a lot more places like this in the 60's and 70's, but Hirscheneck seems to be thriving.

Very friendly service, most of the times willing to chat even with non german speaking people. Their food is absolutly excellent although you don't have many choices (6-8 dishes). And last but not least very good prices for Basel standards.
