I came here for the saturday moules et frites evening with my mom and we were delighted. Very nice moules (both the marinées and with tomato sugo), great pommes frites. Although the place was crowded, service was fast and friendly. Hope I can make it back another time before the moules season ends! :)

도로변에 위치하고 있어 찾기에 편하다. 서비스직원들이 생각보다 친절하지 않은건 사실이다. 커피도 보통수준이며 케잌이나 디저트가 꽤 맛있는 편이다. 브런치로 이 장소를 택하기에는 가격대비 별로 추천하고 싶지않다. 가끔 차한잔을 하거나 커피를 하기엔 좋은곳일 뿐이다. 감탄이나 와 좋다라는 기대를 하기엔 충분하지 않은 곳이며 꽤 가까운 거리에 살고 있다면 나쁘지않은 곳이다. 제목대로 날씨 좋을때 밖에 앉아서 마시는 커피는 추천한다. 꽤 낭만적이다.

I have a small twinstroller and we spotted a good, calm corner to sit down. Although the place was half empty, the waiter came to complain about the stroller. I tried to show that we are not blocking anyone, but no - the stroller should stay out. She well saw that my babies are too small to sit alone and... More

I've been here twice for brunch. The garden is nice during the warmer months and I would give 5 stars to its location and atmosphere. However, Des Amis being one of the top-rated brunch locations in Zurich, I was quite disappointed by their plain menu. It has the standard breakfast fare (e.g. bread, birchermuesli, eggs) but lacked inspiration. I hope... More

A cool place close to the city center to have a drink or a light dinner. Only negative is the service which is very very slow and not really professional

We went here for lunch, actually looking for another cafe, but stopped here as it was raining. We were in luck! We had the scrambled eggs and bacon, and agreed that they were the best eggs and bacon we have had in a long time.

Really chilled place to have a coffee and / or brunch. We recently went on a bit of a drizzly Sunday and enjoyed ourselves. We had a 1 year old with us but felt at ease and made comfortable by the staff. The cake slices were huge and the Nutella crepe was delicious....will be popping by again

I had a very nice sunday brunch with my sister. We ordered "étagère" for 2. It was delicious. After that we had enough energy for a 2h bicicle ride around zürich
