There are two entrances to this business next to each other. The one side of the business is the pastry/breads/cakes in the display... read more

Breakfast in Zurich is definetly an Italian thing, several "caffetterias" managed by Italians. This one have a wide offer of Italian pastries, beutiful also to see. Cornetti are good, other pastries I tried a little too sweet, but ok.

Great place if you love Italian breakfast style. Great espresso and cakes from southern Italy. If you are in the neighbour you must go.
