“Ideal for cakes/coffee”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

A good experience for cake and coffee but service can be a little haphazard sometimes and the meal options are disappointing. Highly recommended for an afternoon.

“Classy & Charming Bakery and Coffehouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Located nicely away from the bustle of Bahnhofstrasse, Babu's interior grabs you as soon as you walk in the door. As you approach the counter to order you notice high ceilings, wood floors and a series of mismatched wood tables spread out haphazardly across the room. Up a couple steps in the back is a more secluded area looking out over the main room.

Joining this beautiful settings is a selection of freshly house baked goodness of the highest quality. We tried the fruit müesli, coffeecake and a great latte. This homey atmosphere, without the rush often found in a hotel breakfast room is an amazing way to start the day in Zurich.

Once you chose your breakfast just select a table and it will be brought to you in minutes. You can sneak in a dessert to go for a late afternoon treat!

“my favourite destination for coffee or brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

my favorite café in zurich. Babu's is cozy and the interior design fun and charming. they serve cakes, waffles, pancakes, rolls, porridge as well as good bread. it makes it difficult to pick. the staff are always friendly. the cafe can get quite crowded on saturday and sunday mornings though.
