Good espresso at the start of Zurich "Red Light District"

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... read 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

one of the best coffees I had in Zurich, food was ok although undeniably great value, but standout service - warm, friendly, and when I realized I forgot to bring my wallet out, was told "it's ok, pay what you can" - beat that! (and they were absolutely ok with me leaving and coming back to pay them)

For a place called café i was not waiting they had meals like a normal restaurant. And how wrong i was. After 2 and half years in Zurich, i was surprised how i never found this place before. The meals are always a combination of flavors and very well prepared. I recommend the duck which is served with a burning... More

Unfriendly, forgetful and overstrained waiters on a saturday evening. Plus, we did not seem to be cool enough for them. Instead of apologizing they reacted arrogantly. We won't come back.

Usually its expensive and dissappointing to visit bars in Zuerich. No value for money if compared anywhere in the rest of the world. This place was somewhat different. Friendly, not stingy and we had good time.
