The food is really good, it's super cozy and airy. I've been there for dinner and brunch and would recommend both! The service is a tad slow though when the place is busy (there are only two servers, one being mainly a barista) so if you're in a hurry maybe best to avoid it. I would recommend the veal and...

Went here a couple of hours ago. Walked in, said "hello", was ignored, so went and sat at an empty table. I was dining alone, so obviously was not caught up in conversation with anyone. Read the menu (it was already on the table so I didn't have to wait for anyone to bring it to me), watched a couple... More

Visited Zurich on business and had a couple of hours to look around. This place was recommended so I thought i would pop in on a rainy day. Hot water is meant to be HOT - having a tea without hot water is hopeless. Cake was nice but couldnt figure out the flavour from the menu. Staff was `interesting`! I... More

Situated in Niederhof, one of Zurich's main leisure streets, this small but cozy restaurant was a real revelation! Nicely decorated in pastel tones, service was welcoming and polite. We had goat cheese starters, very good. My girlfriend had a chicken schnitzel with an abundant mixed salad, I had kraut wraps filled with spätzli and garnished with a gravy sauce...both dishes...

In the old town of Zurich a typical old and cute restaurant ideal for brunching or for dinning with friends! Waiters are really kind and care a lot , the place is full lot of the time and really lively and the rosti egg is just at the Top for a moderate price. A nice place to experience

We are here last night- good thing we had a booking, as they were very busy- with several people waiting to be seated. I liked the ambience- the place is cosy and had an intimate atmosphere.

The place is pretty, it reminds me of the old typical coffee places in Vienna. The coffee was delicious and the staff was friendly.

We were looking for a meal in Zurich and we found this lovely little restaurant the prices were less than the hotel area and the service was good. we were there early around 6.00pm but the restaurant got very busy by the time we left. If you decide to go it may be advisable to make a reservation.

Description
Continuing a tradition since 1981 For over 30 years, Café Restaurant Mohrenkopf has been a popular meeting place in the heart of Zurich's old town at Niederdorfstrasse 31. Its interior design is a winning combination of contemporary style and traditional elements of coffee house culture. The café serves fresh, home-made pastry, Swiss specialities and seasonal dishes. Among the specialities are freshly made Capuns 'Sursilvans', juicy chicken breast with home-made herb butter and of course the café's signature dish: a large selection and variety of home-made 'Mohrenköpfe' (chocolate-coated marshmallow treats). Café Restaurant Mohrenkopf is open all year round, serving breakfast, lunch, coffee and cake or a apéro drink on the terrace.
