Afternoon bliss

For anyone who has a sweet tooth, this place is pure enjoyment. The concept is one where you can choose from a variety of roughly 15 types of sponge cake - carrot, lemon, marble, etc. You get 2 slices and a cream dip. A lovely selection of coffees or wine, Prosecco, etc. and you have the makings... read more

That's how dry it was. Really boring vanilla Americanized cake fare. Needless to mention, it was loud and chaotic, and the server forgot half of my order. Will I be back? No. Especially because the horde of children gravitating around our table sans parental attention was more than obnoxious. PS: the espresso was too acidic. Yuck 2.0.

I made it in to Cakefriends early on a Sunday morning just after opening. The place was quiet with only two other customers. They have sofas on their sidewalk seating area and inside the seating varies from padded wall benches, chairs and wooden tables and these little padded cube like seats. There are two sides to the business, one being... More

Nice little trendy coffee shop with a relaxed atmosphere in the heart of the old town. The staff were really friendly and accommodating. They've got a decent range cakes, drinks and light snacks. The only let down was the quality of the cakes, they were a bit dry and bland.

Very nice coffee and apple tart! The best is I have ever tasted! I have not try their cakes but I saw many customers who preferred them... Nice atmosphere and polite staff, difficult to find free seats early in the afternoon! Wonderful serving cutlery and trays! I took a photo because I was very enthusiastic !

Pleasant atmosphere, probably music would match perfect in such a place. Regarding the menu, did not have a big choice of cakes...

Half of the tables still had half empty coffee cups and dirty plates and we had to wait 30 min to order, 20 minutes to be served a single cake and 15 more minutes to ask the check. Seriously guys???? And on top of this we paid around 7 CHF for a piece of cake that was not special at... More

Really liked the fact that their cakes were not too sweet, which seems to be the standard elsewhere. The prices were ok for Zurich, about 6 CHF for 2 pieces of cake. Ice cream was more expensive, and a bit too sweet, but not bad. Overall an average place that I would go again to.
