We love this little cafe in the heart of the "Dorf." They have a nice assortment of cakes, like the Sacher and various fruit (berry) cakes, and of course the famous Engadin Walnut Cake that we just had to try. Their hot chocolate is perfect for a rainy day. We enjoyed just taking in the old-time atmosphere and looking through... More

We visited for a hot chocolate mid morning. The Shop is amazing and worth a visit on your way through. We sat at the window overlooking the lake drinking a very very fattening hot chocolate! It was gloriously old fashioned and a perfect way to spend an hour.

A very traditional coffee / pastry shop, and restaurant. for decades they are stuck in the same very mediocre menu , no creativity, stressed waitresses, but even so in high season packed, it lives still of its old reputation

A very colorful cafe with different kinds of chocolate, cakes and various sandwiches. Even if you don't like sweet, you have to feel its magic-like atmosphere.

The hot chocolate in Hanselmann's gives decadent a whole new meaning! Especially with the side dish of real whipped cream they deliver alongside the chocolate. I think they just melted the perfect chocolate bar into the pitcher! Then there are the desserts to choose from ... the wait staff was excellent, as well.

I suppose Hanselmann is the most well known place in St. Moritz. It is on the central square. It has recently been renovated totally, without loosing its old charm. They have sweets and pastries (try the blood orange covered with melted sugar!) in the front, which you have to get yourself. There is also an menu with suggestions of the... More

Nice ambiance, youngsters hangout. Good desserts. Very nice place to have a coffee break after a long day skiing. Always crowded.
