Often very busy, but great once you get a spot. Nice, busy yet casual atmosphere. I would recommend ordering a selection of cakes which comes with some cream and jams. It's a good location, we often take visiting friends after a walk by the lake.

The 'complet petit dejeuner' fills an early morning hole. The Birchlemuesli was also popular. Large range of cakes to choose from.

Went there with kids for breakfast. The waiter was friendly and tried his best to help. We ended up paying an arm and a leg for bread, cheese, coffee and canned juice. Not worth it.

Is a really nice place for a delicious cappuccino and a delight cake! You can choose from a list of fresh cakes, that are a little expensive,,,but it value!the bad is that in the same place they eat soup and it smells a little bad,,,

A fantastic little place to stop, refresh and catch your breath between visiting the shops. The friendly staff and treat presentations appear most welcoming, and although there are better decorated cakes available widely across the city, the value and taste debate is won here. Service is quick and my ordered cake and coffee arrived at my table in minutes. This... More

It's always well patronised and sometimes there's a wait for a table but they always manage to squeeze us in. The coffee is particularly nice but my husband is there for the cakes. He hasn't met one he doesn't like. They are always fresh and delicious. He is working his way through the menu…!

Seated outside and kept ourselves cosy and warm with blankets provided. Shared a wonderful Schwarzwald ice-cream after dinner somewhere else - although at almost 15 francs was on the expensive side. Waiter was friendly. We didn't like the way that we had to order two cakes minimum - so didn't go for the cakes.

Their quiche was very good, but what's the point when one needs to wait for quite a while in the seated area without getting any attention from the waitresses? Even worse, we eventually decided to take something to-go from their counter, and the employee would touch the quiches with bare hands- and while this is wrong enough, he did it... More

Sometimes it is not so easy to find a nice place with coffee and cakes in Zurich, yet Cake Friends is the one! A good selection of cakes, snacks, soft drinks, tea and coffee make this lovely cafe worth visiting. Staff is friendly and helpful and serving goes fast (when the cafe is not too full). Note that it gets... More
