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.

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. So we were back at Hanselmann and the interesting surprising findings were two: First, that the people watching here remains very very good over... More

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.

Located on the central square in St. Moritz, it seems Hanselmann has been here forever. Having been done up about a year ago, everything looks good enough. The cakes and chocolates are typically Swiss, the menu holds all sort of dishes for all times of the day. Having made a few friends among the servers, I have absolutely no complaints.... More

high prices (lamb's lettuce with a little smoked salmon > 25 CHF), average quality (they even forgot to cut the roots of the salad properly) and the service, well what service (I almost felt guilty to bother the person)?

Off-cource it was expensive. It's in the center of St. Moritz. it was a nice place to stop and eat a hot soup and traditional swiss potatos with hum and egg and pasta for the kid. Most of the other guests have also ordered pasta napolitana. I suppose because of the extremely high prices!!! The staff was extremely fast in... More
