Fondue with a difference at this popular restaurant near the cathedral.

If you like fondue but you’re not a strict traditionalist, this is the place to come. Café de l’Évêché has no fewer than 11 different fondues on the menu, from the classic moitié-moitié (half gruyère, half vacherin fribourgoise), to a house fondue with beer and various options with mushrooms, onions and tomatoes. All can be served with potatoes rather than the usual bread. If such deviations from the norm make you shudder in horror, then stick to one of the more traditional fondue restaurants in town. But for fondue with a difference in a youthful, casual atmosphere, this place wins out.

It’s also a popular spot for an after-work beer or a catch up with friends in its lovely beer garden out the back or on the front terrace. And fonduephobes fear not, the menu also includes meat dishes, salads and pastas, plus a good-value daily changing menu of the day.
