Outstanding Conditorei

Had a memory of this beautiful tasty Cafe Conditorei from 4 years ago. Today with my parents we had a great experience in this cafe. Had a strong espresso with warm apple strudel & vanilla sauce, my parents had tasty fruit cakes with cream cafe with melange cafe. We were more than satisfied. A true... read more

We stopped by for afternoon tea. It is a little difficult to order if you have decided you want a cake on the counter as the waiter comes to your table and you have to remember the name of it. Never the less we worked it all out. The cakes and coffee were nice and the environment is delightful. Others... More

I say breakfast shoppe because they are a proper bakery offering a luxury of fine baked goods, cookies, tarts, etc. But their breakfast menu is competitive. I would say skip the hotel breakfast and come to Cafe Schober, you'll be glad you did.

Wonderful old Cafe with fantastic cakes and deserts. My favourite room was the Red plush room, but the garden room was also lovely and inner courtyard.

At CHF 60 for an apple strudel, a chocolate caramel tort, and one cold chocolate and one hot chocolate (supposedly their specialty), this place was expensive and underwhelming. The cold chocolate was just chocolate milk. Nothing more and nothing less. The hot chocolate tasted like instant mix. The strudel tasted like corporate-bakery made back in the states. The chocolate caramel... More

For me, the best thing about this place was the house its self, with the interior courtyard. Everybody else was sitting in front, to see the people pass by. After you choose your sweets, go right and at the end of the hallway you will find a nice silent courtyard. It is full of plants and it has a special... More

I was super excited to try the hot chocolate touted as the worlds best but found it to be fairly average. The cafe itself is pretty and has a nice patio facing a cute street. The pastries and chocolates are nice looking but look better than they taste and are expensive. I would pop in for a look and leave.

Being in Switzerland, we were excited about trying out the hot chocolate. We read good reviews on trip advisor, unfortunately we didn't have the same experience. I know the prices are expensive in Switzerland but we paid around $10 AUD for one hot chocolate that was more milky then chocolatey and not very creamy. Would not go back again.

Lovely place to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate. The cakes and pastries are delicious, too. Although it could be quite hectic and crowded at times, it's worth paying a visit.
