This café probably offers the best value for money in Basel. Incredibly cakes and coffee, very good for lunch and dinner as well. They also have a nice selection of alcoholic drinks and you can enjoy a sundowner in front of a church.

Worth a visit! Combine with climbing stairs inside the church to see the city. Best coffee! They know how to serve it, happens not often!

Cosy Café in a very genuine environment, in the Elisabethen-Church. Very friendly service and great coffee!

Have you ever had lunch, coffee or tea in a church? Surrounded by naïve paintings of naked Madonnas? The experience by itself is worth the try, especially as it is set in the center of historic Basel, and makes for a nice break. Now, the...More

This restaurant specialises in traditional swiss food, particularly rosti which is available with a wide choice of topping. We chose another swiss favourite, namely raclette, which was prepared in the kitchen rather than at the table, but arrived just as fresh and delicious, and was...More
