They just do everything different and take it to the next level. The atmosphere has it all whether you are inside or outside.

We had a snack here that turned into lunch. Two of us had filled bagels that looked delicious although they left none for me to try! By contrast my partner and I each had a kind of very thin crust pizza. Mine was topped with salmon, with fresh dill and capers while my partner had bacon and cheese. Both were... More

beautiful from the moment you step into the place. Three floors all with different decoration, nice service and a fantastic display of cakes and biscuits under glass bells and a very old till. Definitely on the list of places to go when you visit Zurich.

Stopped here after lunch and had a hot chocolate and dessert on the patio. The server seemed a little overwhelmed with the crowd outside, but did an OK job of keeping everything in order. The chocolate was amazing. Stop here if you're in town and enjoy people watching outside with a cup of hot chocolate.

Decor changes with the season, nice ambiance for female bonding. Each room has its own unique feel. Cakes are good, hot chocolate and coffee is also good. But honestly I come here for the cosy ambiance.

The decoration is fantastic, please step inside and go upstairs,antique furniture everywhere,but very cosy and comfortable, low romantic light. Llook at the ceiling,you will find a beautiful rustic decoration. We tried applestrudel and a cake with caremel, both delicius and frechest. The prices are high as everywhere in Zurich. For two cappucinos and desserts and a small bottle of water... More

We sat outside and had a hot chocolate which was lovely. We asked the waitress to recommend a cake and she recommended a chocolate cake which was dry as a bone!! Go inside and choose your own cake. Lovely little place though and nice atmosphere. Expensive!

We enjoyed a late breakfast at Cafe Schrober, consisting of omeletes and coffee. Very tasty food, good coffee, and a great atmosphere in a baroque style room. This is a lovely cafe with several rooms with different decor. Service is efficient. Very busy, but worth waiting for a table.
