A quick, early morning visit to check out the Red Room again. I arrived early so I had a choice of seating. The staff was friendly upon entering. Kevin took my order and recognized me from my previous visit. I‘m sure he will remember our...interesting discussion concerning the cheesecake and Russian cake. I enjoy chatting with him on my visits. I enjoyed my soy milk (lactose-free, hazelnut milk also available) hot chocolate and cheesecake. I always look forward to visiting my favorite room in the city after a long absence.More

I know this place for many years. It used to be one of the best coffee shops in Zürich with fantastic cakes etc. now it has changed a lot. The decor is still very nice. But unfortunately the quality of the products has dropped significantly....The cake I had was really not good, no taste and very dry. The hot chocolate was good. Service was not very attentive and a bit too casual for such a nice place. Please note that despite Covid the distance between guests is very limited so you might not feel very comfortable. Definitely a pity it has not the same quality level anymore. Hopefully one day they will improve the quality.More

This cafe has been here for almost two centuries and its retained its old world charm with all the modern amenities! There is so much demand for tables here that a half an hour wait in a queue is quite normal. We were 7 of...us and got a table on the second floor and till then, amused ourselves with admiring the beautiful Christmas confectionery there!More

The best hot chocolate that I had in Zurich! In this cafe, you can find a cosi place to stop and have tasteful and interesting flavors. I recommending for sure. Once you will be there, one thing is sure that you never regretted!

Tourist trap. I ordered an apple strudel and it comes microwaved (I confirmed with the waitress). Soaked dough and very blend in flavor. Doesn’t recommend.

We enjoyed hot chocolates (with cream), an apple strudel and a flammkuche... Really enjoyed the decoration, hot chocolates and the desert. The flammkuche was a bit dry. Staff were very helpful! We will be back!

We stopped at our favourite café for their excellent, large breakfast of muesli, gipfeli, bread, bread roll, butter, jams, orange juice and coffee. A lovely place to relax and people watch after the morning’s exercise! Friendly service and a great terrace. Highly recommend.

The decoration was nice, with Christmas spirit! First impression good! But, except this, the staff was rude and unhelpful! We were waiting more than 15’ to assist us! And they spoke only German, even I was speaking in English and I couldn’t understand what they...said! The coffee was good, but we felt that they didn’t respect us, so we left quickly!More

The hot chocolate is simply amazing. All the staff is really nice. The space decoration and all the details are so special. It is worth the visit.
