“Easily the Best Cafe in Montreux”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

Zurcher is a local institution that has been around since 1876. You know they are doing something right to be around for this long. This is a great place to come to relax and unwind.

Whenever I am in Montreux I try to make a point to drop by Zurcher for a cup of cappuccino or hot chocolate. Bar none this place has the best hot chocolate. And if I am hungry without hesitation I would get one of their delicious sandwiches or pastries. You need to order from the counter for the sandwiches/pastries and prepay for it. You then go find a table and sit with your food. The waiter will be by to get your drink order.

During lunchtime they serve set lunches and if you like what they have on the menu I would recommend that you have lunch there. Their food is always done well. Lunch is table service. The cafe is open Tuesdays - Sundays (closed on Mondays). In the summer months the windows at the front of the cafe is opened up and you can sit outside. Note: usually smokers will sit outside so if you want to avoid cigarette smoke be sure to not sit there.

“Lunchtime only”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Basically a tea room, but they offer one set meat meal and one fish at lunchtime everyday. If you like what is on offer, the food is delicious.

“A nice place to have a coffee and sandwich or pastry”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2010

Nothing great but we always stop here to have an afternoon snack. Their pastry and sandwich selection is quite satisfying It uis located in the middle of town and allows you to watch the local traffic onthe sidewalks and streets.
