A beautiful place to hang out, the caffe fortuna is amongst the locals known for its "brunch" buffet. Quite pricy, but it can get you through the day. Besides, a glass of champaign or prosecco is included.
If you drop in on a sunny afternoon, you must defenitely go for a cold chocolate. Besides, their garden is one of the nicest places to hang out in summer, which - a little sadly - is only open until 8 p.m.
Talk to Antonino and his staff if you want to have your little celebration at the cafe fortuna.

Breakfast all morning on a regular weekday in a withdrawn and surprisingly lush back garden no more than 3 minutes walk from the central station in Basel - an unexpectedly pleasant experience! Very friendly service, the breakfast was like a buffet in any good hotel (fruit salad, bread, jam, honey, juice, cheese and meat platter, tomatoes, etc.), but with the rather Italian touch of a little rucola and olive oil on top of the smoked ham and an excellent cappuccino to go with it...

A real sign of how Gundeli has changed. Loved the inside and outside. What a fantastic place to retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city!
