Had lunch - it was ok

Great views if you manage to get a table by the windows. Service was a little harried as they were full. However, food was decent. A little pricey for what it was. Might be better to just get desserts and coffee.

Pastries were reasonable, but nothing special. Cappuccino also reasonable. However don't order a glass of water as you will get a sneer for not spending enough. It's an institution, always relatively full, which, it seems, leads to complacency.

Yes, we visited Hanselmann, stood there half an hour, but no, we did not have a coffee there, only tasted some cookies and pralines, and bought some bag full of the confiserie products, as it is the best you can dream of. (For people, who know Swiss Chocolate: Spruengli is easily topped by far!)

Great atmosphere. Great selection of Cakes and Lighter meals. Superb for afternoon tea or Morning coffee. Also good for light lunch if you can get in.

Cafe Hanselmann is a must when in St. Moritz. Have lunch (upstairs) or enjoy a nut torte and coffee downstairs. They also do really good breakfast. There is no need to reserve a table (even during the busy Christmas period), but you might have to wait a few minutes for a table.

Back here after many years in this Sunday lunch time of a winter season reach of snow so that St. Moritz and surroundings (much better) are at their best for pleasure of spending vacation time here.

This café is an institution in St. Moritz, but it seems to be from another era, and should be updated, both in the selection of pastries, and in its décor. It could easily be revived!

Food OK- bit of a tourist trap but perfectly acceptable. Bustling atmosphere. Outside bar which is fun at night.
