Zurich’s best cafés
Coffee culture is a big part of Swiss city life and you don’t have to look far to find a coffee shop, coffee house, tea room or café – Zurich has them all. However, they can vary in function, with some proving good for a breakfast gipfeli (the Swiss-German word for croissant) and others like Sprungli or Kafi Dihei serving excellent milchkafi (milky coffee) and cake. Then there are venues like Grande Café (perfect for posing with a laptop) or Café des Amis, which is ideal for a hip Sunday brunch – in fact, a few cafés provide shining examples of great food in Zurich, making café-hopping one of the most enjoyable things to do in the city. Whatever you’re after, you’ll probably find it in a Zurich café, so here’s our pick of the very best spots around.
