Very nice

I like to come here for brunch. Nice food in a casual setting. Geraldine one of the owners will always welcome you warmly with a smile. You can feel the passion they have put into the place the moment you walk in.

We thought we could discover a new place for brunch and we tried Kafi Dihei. It is a bit out of Zurich heart but it has this underground funky feel that you rarely find in Zurich. It is very cozy all set up with thrift shop chairs and tables, and the menu is full of vegan - vegetarian - bio... More

It is a really nice place with great design and delicious kitchen. It may seem that is is just a cafeteria, but they offer really good quality meals, both for vegetarian and carnivores. If you have a chance to visit Kafi Dihei, do not hesitate. It is worth it. And don't forget to visit the restroom - that is an... More

I just love this place! It's homey, cosy and a real change from the spartan, austere cafés and tea houses around town. The service is super friendly and as for the freshly baked scones and home made lemon curd.. take it from me, as a keen baker myself, they are just mouth wateringly good. Just the sort of place I...

I visited for an afternoon tea here at Kafi Dihei. The exterior of the building is very nice as there is a thick waterfall of blooming ivy encompassing most of the building. There is a nice garden seating area. Inside, the place is like walking into some grandparents’ home with antique chairs and furniture and pictures on the wall. There... More

Lovely little restaurant in a quiet neighbourhood with character and a down-home atmosphere - homemade ice tea, lunch specials and delicious, fresh and simple menu. Great value for money. Terrace seating is generous and private, not overcrowded so conversation is easy.

Orange juice was real stuff and bread still warm. Went there with a friend and the terrasse was very cosy. Lady working there was friendly.

The omelets and pancakes are particularly delicious. Make sure to check out the weekly specials on the board. They don't take reservations on weekends, so I recommend either coming very early when they open or late (say after 1pm). With that in mind, you can ask if it's okay to wait for the next available table, to which they will... More

The place is quite small, but this is the only minus. All the rest is really excellent, fro the home made bread to the tasty brunch. Recommended for couples. I found a bit high the final bill, but we are in one of the most (if not the most) expensive city of the world.

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 (and the kids) feel welcome immediately, and the food was delicious.... More
