Fantastic quality at a very decent price for Switzerland. A sandwich which was enough for dinner and a big beer 20 CHF.

The Foccaceria is located in the heart of the city, conveniently situated between the university and the central bus station.

The good points:
The place nice for small groups or couples, situated on two floors with two terrasses (one on the second floor and one at the entrance). Ambiance and decor are very simple, but cosy. The way it works is that you get in, stand in line and choose a Foccacia size (small, mid and large breads) and choose you fillings. The cheeses and charcuterie are very good and in great varieties, and the vegetables are fresh. You can mix and match whatever you want!
Prices are reasonable, given the good ingredients.

The "can do better"
The place is small and service is slow or forgetful.

Foccacias are very tasty, you can order a medium (around 10Fr) on its own or quite often I order a small one with a small soup as well. The olive pesto or nut pesto are both delicious. The place can get very busy around lunchtime so get here early or you can always order to take out.

Focacceria is located right at the heart of St.Gallen, very close to Marktplatz, in a tiny and quiet corner. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, the waiters are nice and helpful. Regarding the food... it's amazing. Very good italian focaccia and high quality ingredients mixed with creativity make this place a "must" not only for a quick snack, but also for a dinner with friends.
Sweets and wines are excellent as well.
Focacceria is also quite cheap. The prices range from 9 to 15 for a focaccia, depending on the dimensions.

The focaccia prices are maybe 1 or 2 Frannks too expensive, yet they taste extreeemely good, so it's hard to stop grabing a focaccia sandwich over there!
The antipasti look nice also, still they are too expensive in my opinion.. At least for students and others who cant pay 25-30.- for lunch...

Still, thanks flor existing and cooking us these good sandwiches!
