Great little place to have a cake and a coffee (or tea). Try to get a window seat overlooking the town hall square.

This place is quite nice and peaceful. If you go there, you must try the hazelnut and truffle cake, it is absolutely divine ! It is a little expensive but it is really worth it. It is a very nice place for a cup of tea or a fruit juice in front of the beautiful market place.

I am a cake lover and this place is really good! Actually I was a little bit hungry so I ate three different cakes, such a joy!

What can I say? I grew up with it, and I have travelled the world since. There are great confiseries everywhere but this one takes the gold medal. Nostalgia? Perhaps, but just go see for yourselves: only the finest of the finest ingredients, the finest traditional techniques make the best hot chocolate in the world. For the patisseries, the breads (Brioche, Buttersilserli, Croissants, Aprikosenwähe, Rhabarberwähe, and many many more...) The ice cream is exceptional. And the setting - it's time travel into the 19th century, writers, artists, philosophers and merchants come here to quietly drink their coffee with view on to the Rathaus and the busy market square. Not to be missed.

In the same place since 1870, as the old photographs show. Delicious home made icecream and other typical sweets.
