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.

I love, love, love this place! Every time I am in Zurich I go and have a hot chocolate or coffee there. The seasonal decoration is lovingly chosen and every floor is a tad different. Christmas was of course a great time to enjoy dessert and something warm to drink. It is always busy and yet the manage not to... More

This is one of the best cake and coffee places that I have been to anywhere. I visited several times during my visit to Zurich and each occasion left a taste and sensation that has since become a lasting and cherished memory. The cakes are inventive, stunning and delicious. Coffee is rich and smooth. The place is divided into three... More
