You immediately feel at home ("dihei") there

We ventured out to Dihei one Saturday morning, and got a table immediately (they don't take reservations any more on week-ends; I believe, they don't have to, and don't want to turn away many potential customers). The atmosphere inside this rather small cafe was extremely friendly, they made us... read more

Thats the best place to have breakfast/brunch. Friendly staff, fast service, cozy atmosphere. Fitness breakfast with different fruits, home-made bread and orange fresh was delicious. Ask for the vegetable quiche, which is not in the menu ;)

I found this place through a review of another restaurant on Trip Advisor and decided to check it out. We took the tram number 2 and chugged slowly along until we reached Zypressenstrasse. We walked around for a bit and noticed the building on the corner with strange plant growing all over the side of the building, this was the... More

a bit difficult to access this small cafe because there is not a lot of space to move. Indeed as I read on the site, strollers are not expected because of this lack of space. I was seated on a cosy sofa, immediately asked for my order but after that I had a hard time to get the waitress attention.... More

They have a nice menu with lots of different breakfast and brunch options. Their bread is home-baked and much of the food they serve is organic. From the eggs to the porridge, yoghurt and bread - it was very yummie. Also the service is friendly and efficient. On summer days they have outside seating.

You simply have to go there. Looks like your grandma's living-room and serves excellent tea & coffee. Sometimes the place is really packed and you've got to be patient. But the staff is always very friendly. This is a place for people who are not in a hurry and want to get a really excellent breakfast (even on weekdays until... More

Lovely restaurant with yummy food, recommended by a local friend. Great omelettes and yogurt and choice of fresh juices and teas. Cosy outdoor seating area and a nice cosy interior too. They don't really do brunch...apparently! looked like brunch to me and tasty too :)

One of my top 3 cafes in Zürich. Lovely staff, delicious food and drinks, quirky interior and a pretty terrace outside. Love it. :-)

A great brunch place in Zurich. Very fair prices for great service and a cozy atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and most of them speak great English. They offer the standard European flair with an American twist. Perfect for a warm summer day or a rainy afternoon.
