Great spot for a quick bite. Chicken salad was really good. The focaccia did not taste very fresh for the bread, or maybe I am used to something a bit softer/fluffier. The options for spreads, meats and cheeses were plentiful so you will be able to make something unique and full of flavor. Make sure to make your way upstairs... More

It's a great place to grab a bite to eat. You go up to the counter and add what you like to your plate. The prices are reasonable for local standards, but forget cheep! The place is packed most of the time. There is some upstairs seating as well. The place is well within the old town of St.Gallen, walking... More

I go there like once a week and I've never been disappointed. Very delicious, fast (if you want), a bit pricey but worth it :-)

They were very rude, arrogant staff. They made us wait so long standing on the queue (they dont serve on the tables)They didnt have what we wanted, we order somethingelse and they gave us the wrong stuff, with no apologize. They didnt correct their mistakes. They treated us as terrorists. Definitely not going back!

Stopped for lunch on a Monday when many other restaurants were closed. Two couples. Two medium focaccia sandwiches, one large salad, and one soup = 60 SwissF...a bit expensive, but the food is so good, it's worth it. For the sandwiches, you stand in front of a counter and order from a very appetizing selection of ingredients. I'd like to... More

Fantastic quality at a very decent price for Switzerland. A sandwich which was enough for dinner and a big beer 20 CHF.

The Foccaceria is located in the heart of the city, conveniently situated between the university and the central bus station. The good points: The place nice for small groups or couples, situated on two floors with two terrasses (one on the second floor and one at the entrance). Ambiance and decor are very simple, but cosy. The way it works... More
