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

Great cakes and nice atmosphere... but awefully slow service. There's 6 waitresses for 20 tables and we've waited more than 10 min for a coffee.

Service was quick. Ambiance was nice. Menu's were cute and offered both salty and sweet options despite the name. Ordered a slice of walnut caramel cake and a slice of chocolate hazelnut cake. The flavour was nice, but I found them to be quite dry. The whip cream did help though. I also ordered a Stracciatella milkshake which wasn't thick... More

I've heard about this place but never had the opportunity to visit until Monday night. It was the perfect place to duck in for some warmth after visiting the Christmas market at Bellevueplatz nearby. It wasn't very crowded, so we had our pick of seats, and I settled into a comfy bench by the window. I liked the decor--kind of... More

Puzzled by some of the other reviews as we found the coffee and the service in this stylish cafe to be very good. We didn't try the cakes so can't comment on those but the drinks were excellent and very well presented and the staff were friendly and service quick. Visited twice and both times we found this to be... More

The ambiance and the food is ok but the staff's behaviour ruins everything. We waited far too long and asked several times for a waitress to clean up the table and take our order. The service needs sorting out, otherwise the place is not worth it.

We decided to try Cakefriends since it loked modern and cozy place. Service was quite slow, coffee could be better and the cream cake (chocoholic) very creamy and did not really taste chocolate. Good location and nice interior, but there are much better places in Zurich.

It used to be a cool place to hang out, with the modern design of interior where everything looks white and clean. But over years seems like this place loosing it's charm. The service gets really slow especially when it's full. The food are okay and the coffees are not bad.

This smart-looking cafe drew us in. We loved the whole look and feel, from the stainless steel island coffee station in the centre, to the hanging wine bottles and cylindrical light shades. The place smells like fresh, warm cake. We tried the tasting platter of 6 types of cake, which was served with whipped cream, chocolate mousse, berry compote and... More
