Revisited Café Lang for Sunday Brunch again today. New menu - most of the old breakfast classics are gone but were replaced with creative new options (CHF 28 each) that won't leave you hungry or disappointed. The four of us tried four different breakfast platters (Eggs Benedict, Salmon Pastrami, Burrata and the classic Swiss "Butterzopf"), and everything was truly delicious.... More

Cosy and stylish old cafe in the heart of Zurich, very pleasant and great service. Plenty of locals as customers which is a great indication. The opposite to a tourist trap. Very good variety for breakfast and true freshly-made flavoursome food. Nicely served in cottage style plates, trays, cutlery, glasses, etc. Portions are on the small side though. Only thing...

Was at Café Lang for brunch today - sunday. This place used to be great as it had a great atmosphere and they served a good brunch. Have been several times over the last few years. However, today, the menu seemed to have changed. CHF 28 for a set menu which does not embody your traditional international breakfast i.e. scrambled... More

Probably one of the best if not the best brunch places on a weekend (all day). The food is delicious and has a main and 3 sides which all are to die for. They are friendly and have no issues changing the menu for you.

Atmosphere: Vienesse. Be prepared to step into another time and space with a true Vienesse coffee house experience. The furniture, the beautiful wood panels, the vintage green, even the newspapers hanging on the walls ready to be read. Sit at the window booths for a bit of people watching or if you are into food, take a seat near the... More

I was fortunate on my visit to have a choice of prime seating inside or at the sidewalk tables, unlike other times when passing by, this place is always packed. All of the sidewalk tables and chairs face outward so everyone has a nice view of Limmatplatz and the hectic traffic passing by. Inside, there are rooms from padded booths... More
