We have gone here 2x now and really enjoyed this little dessert shop in Zurich. Sitting out on the sofas and benches with the blankets is a great way to enjoy a time together. The hot chocolate is pretty good as well.

That used to be one of my favorite spots. The last three times I've been there, I had the same problem. It was understaffed and the personnel was grumpy. My dessert was actually so bad that I couldn't finish it. The wifi also didn't work. I complained but didn't even get an apology. Not coming back.

Had a very nice time here with coffee and some treats. The bread items had very subtle tastes, could have been stronger as the banana bread and orange bread did not taste much different. Coffee was good and the apfelstrudel was very good.

The place is very nice to spend a coffee time and its location is great. The espresso was excellent and the cakes good. Have in mind that is very expensive. 4,90 CHF for an espresso and 5,70 CHF for a cappuccino (I'm attaching the invoice)

We went to this place for lunch. They offer some 'asian inspired' lunch menus. I've ordered a Thai Salad with Beef. It was a soup style, dead cooked stew. No taste, cooked to death! Ok, my fault I go to a place called 'Cake & Friends' for lunch. But they really should focus on their key business and stop offering... More

Cake is a little in the dry side for my taste, but nice hot chocolate. Nothing special, but a nice treat.

We went looking for cakes in Zurich and it wasn't easy. Finally we managed to find Cakefriends and it wasn't disappointing. It has a nice sit out where you can enjoy a large range of cakes and coffees. A must go if you are a cake lover!

More than just cake. Of course, if a restaurant is called Cakefriends, you go here for the cake, but looking at our table neigbors salads, it seems like they also have a fantastic selection of savory items. When you order cake you get 2 pieces and can choose 2 different ones. Great option as you get to taste 2 different... More

It took ages to get our order taken , we waited for 30 min to only get our order taken and people who came after us were already served . The atmosphere seemed cosy but the staff was not organised at all; overwhelmed and I saw lot of people loosing their patience and leave the restaurant because of that .... More
