“Cozy and Great for Lingering”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

Actually came here for lunch and not just for the desserts. The special lunch menu offered salad, soup and spaghetti. For a place famous for its dessert, the savory food was quite delicious. Most of the other patrons were lingering over coffee and dessert, either reading or just enjoying good conversation. I visited around Easter and the decorations reflected the holiday. The restaurant is a charming place to rest your feet in while getting a quick bite.

“Fun for people watching and chocolate!”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

The location has changed to Bellevue and I have to say I like the old Niederdorf location better, but it is still good hot chocolate and a fun experience!

“Lovely neighborhood gem.”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

The BEST Hot Chocolate in Zurich, order with sublime whip cream for a heavenly delight.
Weekend evenings, Sylvia G. plays piano often for a small upstairs crowd.
Find a sofa or comfortable chair and settle in for leisurely service with a warm smile. If its warm and sunny, sit outside and let the stream of old town Zurich flow by. Steps from the Grossmunster, take the 4 to Helm Haus and walk up the cobblestone path. No better place to discuss German philosophy. Birchermusli is delicious, as well as flamekuchen and quiche.
