The choices for hot chocolate are endless... I still have not managed to try them all. There is also a selection of very tasty cakes, and exotic types of chocolate in the shop.

Best hot chocolate in Basel, the Brownie was a bit disappointing but the other cakes I have tried there were good. You can see that the owners have created this shop and cafe with heart and the nostalgic interior design is lovely.
