By coincidence we discovered this place just beside the river Aare. Beautiful place to sit outside, no traffic noise and view over the river.

Well the coffee was so lovely... More

Located in an old grain storage house on the pier of the river Aare in the old town of Büren a Aare (not Biel, as listed, but near Biel!!). Beautifully renovated modern restaurant in the old walls.
