Friendly Staff - Different Coffees - Good Food

I like Henrici very much. The staff is always very friendly and the atmosphere is cosy. They offer different varieties of coffee (you can also buy the beans), teas and drinks. Even tea is served the proper way (covered glass with hot water and the tea bag aside). Special recommendation from my... read more

If you want one of the best coffee's in Zurich, you have to try Café Henrici's. Anyone can make a coffee, but a coffee that lives up to its name in terms of aroma and taste, is very hard to find anywhere. Cafè Henrici's is an exception and a must to visit. The atmosphere is relaxed, the staff friendly and... More

Got served a great pour over coffee (hario brewing). The staff was knowledgeable about the coffee, and service was fast. Price was decent for a manually brewed coffee.

Henrici is located in Niederdorf and has a very nice sidewalk seating area with umbrellas and over-looks the square and fountain and a good spot for people watching. The inside seating is mostly wooden tables/chairs and padded chairs. The music level is low enough to carry on a conversation. I have passed by here on many occasions, but never went... More

I read on the net from some reacent review of best coffee places in Zürich that this one had one of the best coffee in the city. The coffee house indeed looks like a bar and the service on the coffee side reflects it. The woman who served me had little knowledge about the coffee and even did not know... More

With my friend I shared a lunch at their terrace just today. Their Mezze Salad was a simple, fresh delight, with chicken and tomato slices with a bit of crunchy kick coming from sunflower seeds, served with rich herby sauce. We also enjoyed the Hummus which was served with generous bread. We asked for the Olive Oil for the Hummus... More

I love coffee. I don't just "drink", i enjoy it. When I'm around Niederdorf, there is no way I'm going home without drink a latte at Henrici first. I also bring every friend and relative visiting Switzerland to Henrici and every one of them were fascinated of that delicious latte. The "Schale" - the best in Zurich. Period. There is... More

I wondered whether the waiter/server was in another place, the service was so long. When we first went into the establishment it was half-empty and it became full really quickly but aside from the dodgy service the food is delicious. It's quite expensive but expected for Niederdorf. I thoroughly enjoyed it as a whole, alas the service brought this score... More

Really a nice place with very friendly staff. Coffee is not cheap in Zürich, so no need to search for budget price. They have their own blend, which really tastes very good. Try it out. There's option to sit outside. in case of hot weather, the windows are open and smokers sit outside. I guess that is the only down... More

What a great find. Henrici is a trendy and laid back cafe, very busy and great vibe. We spent several hours here on a Saturday evening and enjoyed wine, beer and snack foods. Loved sitting and watching the crowd. It was so good that we returned the next morning and enjoyed a delicious brunch. Great fresh juices, lovely coffee. Highly... More
