Busy café at Limmatplatz

I was fortunate on my visit to have a choice of prime seating inside or at the sidewalk tables, unlike other times when passing by, this place is always packed. All of the sidewalk tables and chairs face outward so everyone has a nice view of Limmatplatz and the hectic traffic passing by... read more

Probably one of the best if not the best brunch places on a weekend (all day). The food is delicious and has a main and 3 sides which all are to die for. They are friendly and have no issues changing the menu for you.

Atmosphere: Vienesse. Be prepared to step into another time and space with a true Vienesse coffee house experience. The furniture, the beautiful wood panels, the vintage green, even the newspapers hanging on the walls ready to be read. Sit at the window booths for a bit of people watching or if you are into food, take a seat near the... More

Definitely one of my favorite places to have coffee with friends, read the newspapers with coffee and a croissant, or habing dinner before enjoying the night-life at the Langstrasse. Food is slightly expensive bit still worth it. for the vegetarians i suggest the lemon-hummus plate, so yummy! The service has always been very welcoming and friendly to me. I can... More

Lovely bar with a seating area in the front and back...ideal in summer! Friendly young staff and great service. Cafe Lang is very easy to get to, stays open late and also serves food. Been once for brunch,not only was the selection good, but it was very yummy.
