The place is a must go if you travel to St Moritz for the hot chocolate and cakes/pastry. I always also take a box of chocolates back home as they are my all time favourite. However the service is absolutely terrible - especially if you don't speak german. Shame because it kinds of dimish the pleasure of the experience.

Great chocolate. We loved the dark chocolate with caramel filling. There is also a cafe at the back with a lovely view. Nice place to buy souvenirs but tempting to eat it all before coming home ;-) Staff was very helpful and had good know how of the products.

Hanselmann is iconic in St. Moritz. It's menu doesn't change, it's waiters are still all there and the decor doesn't change, either (admitted, there was a big refurbishment a year or two ago, but essentially, the feel of Hanselmann hasn't changed). Food is good, the pastries look fantastic and the blood oranges covered in crispy sugar are a real treat.... More

For years I have been a client because of the location and an acceptable pastry . But the ladies at the pastry counter are simply the rudest I have ever come across . The food is nourishing , the location very good but the service simply horrible . It looks attractive but don't be fooled .

Delicious chocolates and pastries, beautiful old world café, the food I had was not that great, nor the service but it is still a must visit in St. Moritz.

Incredibly it was almost impossible to find anywhere other than the Coop to find anything to eat in St.Moritz at lunch time on the 31st Dec. Everywhere was busy getting ready for the evening festivities. However by 2.15 the line at Hanselmann had dwindled so we decided to go in for lunch. We were shown to a table where the... More

If you are looking for a restaurant in St. Moritz (especially in the off season when many of the places are closed) this is a great place. We were there for lunch. The entrance is deceptive because the front is a wonderful pastry shop but if you go in the back there is a lovely restaurant with great views and... More

Great Pastry, not so much sympathy, it would be great if they could offer you or suggest you with their specialties.
