This is an exceptionally popular café, quite rightly so. You need to get there early to ensure a table. The quiches are outstandingly good and fresh, this brings about the second reason for getting there early - whilst we were there they ran out of them! Previous reviewers speak of English speaking staff, it must have been their day off... More

The food was made from fresh ingredients and prepared very well. The restaurant is in an historic building that is beautiful on the inside and out. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful - even offering us a menu in English. All around a wonderful dining experience!

If you want a quality light lunch or a coffee with desert, this is the place. Limited menu choices but excellent quality soups, sandwiches, quiches, plus enough coffees, teas, and desserts to have something new for a week. Slow down, graqb an outdoor seat, watch the shoppers and tourists walk by, and enjoy the view up and down Vordergasse, one... More

This is a great café for all seasons! It's actually a vegetarian café; serving quiche, salads, soups, sandwiches and cakes. The food is delicious, particularly the quiches. Even the most enthusiastic of meat-eaters will enjoy it here, guaranteed! In the winter, you can get hot ciders or hot chocolates too. Staff are super-friendly, all speak English. The place is very... More

Pretty little cafe in the centre of Schaffhausen. We arrived too late in the day to eat, but had time for a mulled wine and hot cider before moving on for dinner - the cafe is lovely to look at - and the staff were very friendly! My friend often eats there for lunch with her friends and recommends the... More

Gorgeous Cafe with a unique atmosphere. Everyone wants to have a coffee and cake there. But not only the cakes are enjoyable, try their lunches such as salads or soups which are delicious. The best place for people watching in Schaffhausen if you manage to get a table outside. This cafe is located in the heart of the old town... More

This wonderful cafe in the centre of Schaffhausen offers a terrific menu of home-made salads, sandwiches, soups and cakes, alongside a huge choice of hot and cold drinks. What's so great - apart from the generous portions and faultless freshness of all the ingredients - is that there's often a delicious international touch to the menu: you'll find lassi here,... More
