This cafe is the picture perfect coffee/tea salon, with decorated ceilings, traditional pastry and cakes, ancient stone arches and gilded furniture in a medieval house in Zurich's Old City.....a real find. Its a real tea experience. Not only is it wonderful to just sit there, but the pastries and cakes and edibles are really good, not to mention the teas and coffees......they also serve light meals and these are also excellent. The service was very friendly and we went there twice. I will go again!

This conditorei, actually, Cafe Schober, was a real find. I have been looking for just such a tea salon for some time. This place really fits the bill. It has all the theatre one would want in a traditional elegant tea/coffee salon. Its in one of the beautiful medieval houses in the area, with beautiful stone arches and gilded furniture, a small green courtyard and a wonderful blue tile kacheloffen in one of the rooms. There is a lovely feeling of elegance and luxury that is very restful. Its on four levels and each level is quite small which keeps it intimate. Each level is a little different. The pastries, snacks and cakes are really delicious and beautifully displayed in elegant cases in the traditional manner. There are newspapers and the service is very friendly. The cake display is a feast for the eyes. The ceiling is beautifully decorated. This place is the ideal coffee shop. We went twice and I would make a bee line for it again when I come back to Zurich. Thanks goodness that someone created this!

I got into Schober driven by pictures and reviews. You just cannot miss it if you enjoy design. Although they were selling nothing the venue is worth the visit. Each area is decorated with a different touch. quite oppulent one might say but looks like a kind of game you are in!! you seem to be like inside Alice in wonderland...
It was quite expensive but for once it is more than worthy. Must say service was not very good. That was the down side for sure, or maybe I had bad luck.
Our pastries were very good also although I would say not the best.

We had a table for 9 for a Mothers' day brunch at Café Schober. It was just perfect. There are several levels of rooms, all with a different decor and feel to them (including a really cute outdoors courtyard, which was, however, closed due to rain). The food was very good quality, just the right amount, and the service was very friendly and efficient, although they had lots of guests with just the same plan on the same day. We will definitely be back for some other occasion!

Though pricy (what isn't in Zurich), everything here is prepared with utmost care and service is also friendly and attentive.
