Ok cake, ok atmosphere, ok prices

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.

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

This was a place recommended to us by our friend living in Switzerland and we were not disappointed. Very cute spot with lots of yummy cakes to choose from. I was also impressed with the service (which was generally lacking in the other places I visited).

I cant say how many times I've been there..I'm just into their food. Try the quiche with salad and the coffee/chai tee. BUT the service is just horrible, extremly slow, inefficient. Every week new faces and the dont know the menu or the weekly specials (if you ask on thursday or friday).

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.

We discovered this coffee and cake shop by accident when wandering the smart shops with our kids. We loved the range of cakes and food goodies. So when we pass through Zurich we usually pay a visit. 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.
