“hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

This is one of the well kept Basel secrets. The restaurant is open only in the summer, so there are only a few chances to enjoy it. On top of St Margarethen hill, it is best reached by foot or bike. The restaurant is in a grange- converted into restaurant with amazing furniture - in the courtyard of a working cow farm, so it is a very different and attractive setting. We had brunch there, and given the difficulty of finding good brunch in Basel, we were very happy with our new discovery. Food was excellent, from a large selection of bread, yougurt, cold cuts and cakes to the hot food, including great french toast and eggs cooked to order in the small kitchen. Coffee, juice and prosecco (all of it as much as you can drink) are included in the 39 chf fixed price, which is very reasonable for Basel. The restaurant is open for dinner as well and the menu looks very good - so certainly worth a try in a nice summer evening. Book as there are not many tables.
