My friends and I had read about Cafe Hanselmann online before coming to Switzerland and decided to give it a try as we had sometime before our train departed. It's in the bottom of an older building, maybe a hotel? The baked goods are in the front of the store which you can buy and take into the dining area.... More

Everything was very beautifully presented at the front counter, but it is very high priced. We had an incident with the wait staff. We were told by the young women at the front bakery to take our food to the back restaurant. Although we don't speak Italian, the three waitresses were making comments about us to a man who waiting... More

Had to take something for a train ride and picked up a sandwhich. English was spoken, prices were good. It was difficult deciding what treat to get as there were so many

During out recent stay in St. Moritz my husband suggested a stop at the Hanselmann since he'd been there often on previous visits - ages ago. Ok, so in we went. The place was mostly empty - explained by the off-season - and it was easy to find a seat by the windows. This place is supposed to be world... More

Centrally located, Hanselmann has been here it seems forever. Upon entering, there are two counters: on the left for all sorts of chocolates, on the right for bread, pastries and savory treats. If you walk on, you will come to the dining hall. The walls are all wood paneled and there is Alpine art on the wall. If it is... More

Went into St Moritz with coffee and cake at the famous Hanselmann Cafe in mind. The service was VERY POOR indeed. The waitress could not have bothered less. When asked if we should order the cake etc at table or at the counter outside, she told us to do what we wanted. Told us to take any table. Eventually threw... More

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.
