“Wonderful hot chocolate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

I started my day with a delicious hot chocolate and an apricot tart. I was fortunate to get a seat before the crowd arrived. Very busy tourist destination.

“Takeout Extraordinaire”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We decided to sample all of the unique sandwiches that Spruengli offers by getting them to go. We strolled down to the lakeside park, grabbed a bench (and some Swiss beers), and had a delightful lunch. The sandwiches were all very delicious, and then we started in on the macaroons, eclairs, and truffles. Oh yeah! This place is everything is advertised to be - enjoy!

“Chic and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Every single item in this confiserie-café-restaurant is awesomely delicious. Many items are sheer legend. Be it sweet or salty, if you want to spoil your palate with foods turned works of art, heavily creative and so carefully crafted by the finest artisans that you hardly dare bite into them; and drink to it teas, coffees, hot chocolates, citron pressé, or other drinks that all take on a new dimension here, then pass by this place. It is memorable. The splendid decor has not changed in a hundred years and if you think you see famous writers, philosophers, painters, scientists and so on on the table next to you, you're probably right. Mind you, most guests are likely to be bankers because the place is literally surrounded by them. Sprüngli is a must, even though on the expensive side.

“Best Hot Chocolate and Pastries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

I go regularly to Spruengli am Paradeplatz mainly for Hot Chocolate and Pastries. They serve them in Silver.

The Quality and Service is top notch. Anyone visiting Zurich must go to Spruengli either to the store to by Luxembuergli or Chocolates.

Must try is Brioche with Truffle Chocolate.
