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

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.

Located in Limmaplatz, Zurich Red Light district area of Zurich; houses a bohemian espresso house serving good quality Italian style "coffees" (don't call it a coffee here, it is an Italian inspired place!). It is actually the sister to La Stanza, the other espresso house in Zurich that is akin to private bankers' paradises near Paradeplatz! Thus, this is the... More

Café Lang is a very casual, convenient and vibrant place in Zurich near the famous Langstrasse. We had brunch there already a couple of times - small menu to choose from (I just love the Fleischkäse mit Spiegelei), very fair prices for Zurich, generous portions, very good quality. Young service team members who makes up the partial lack of experience... More

Summing up, this place might be a good choice if you like to be in a trendy environment with lots of graphic designers, architects, hedonists and rich kids but don’t expect a friendly waiter or a warm place when it’s cold outside. PROS: Location! There might be no better place if you’re visiting Zurich and want to see the hip,... More
