We went there three times in four days, just because the are closed on Sunday :-) the cafè design is quite simple and not so impressive, however the bread and the pastries are delicious. Don't miss chocoweggli and Butterzopf! For the very first time, I see the list of ingredients close to every product (that's a plus for people with... More

Discover the bakery by surprise, food is good, price is reasonable, staff had fantastic attitude, sense of welcome towards us as foreigner. We really enjoy our meal and not to forget the big big coffee cup, which you can drink as a bowl

All products made on the premises, including ice cream, cakes, quiches, pizza, bread. I've now been twice and it is terrific. Portions are generous and in summer it is truly wonderful to sit in the square under a sunshade, surrounded by birds, 200-300 year old buildings and just relax. Hard to believe it's the centre of a city!

OK, it's no secret that bred back home in the US is not the world's best, actually far from it - talking store-bought. The Swiss have excellent bread, a plethora of different sorts, with varieties galore. So you're already amazed - but Bio Andreas is a bakery of a special kind. Bread simply can't be any better. Wholewheat creations of... More

Demeter is a process that goes beyond organic, working with the farm according to moon cycles and preferences for the animals and plants. Put this into baked goods, and you get a very special experience. The pastries are rather heavy - which makes them filling - and delicious. My favorites are the Schnecke (snail - pastry, not animal), pizza (small,... More

We love this bakery because it has all organic products, it uses different kinds of wheat (white, whole) and other grains for their products and they have amazing products - both salty and sweet. They can cater for events too (same food as displayed) and we've used their services twice and it's been spot on. You can buy to go... More

Their soups, bread and pizzas are all delicious, as are their teas and coffees. The vegetable pizzas are heaping with fresh vegetables. Save room for one of their delicious pastries.

Was introduced to this cafe/bakery by a friend on a day out in glorious weather. Huge portion of vegetable strudel with fresh salad and bread basket, plus a coffee, all for CHF 20 and I did not eat again that day! You order at the counter inside, pay and receive a chit. They then bring your food to you outside... More

Tasty savoury and sweet tarts and pies, extra large cups of coffee or home-made ice-T in a beautiful ambiance and you're set to enjoy this outstanding bakery. The breads have a home-made taste which makes you feel you're getting healthier by the bite and still it's most delicious. It's a self-service café and when it's not too cold, most people... More

My friends and I went here for lunch today and we had a great time. The food was very nice and the ambiance was fantastic. We sat outside on the courtyard just a few blocks away from the Marktplatz. A great time had by all and certainly a repeat.
