Mid morning coffee with a lovely view of the lake. Excellent weets and pastries can be bought in the shop and then brought through to the cafe

If in St Moritz then Cafe Hanselmann should be on your list of places to go for coffee or tea.Located right in the center of town. Great selection of cakes and other bakery products.( go to the counter to make your selection.) Old style, professional service. And just so much nicer now that smoking is not allowed.

Hanselmann used to be the acme of cafes. Long since gone are the milk jugs and the sense of occasion. You even have to get your own cakes and pay for them at the shop counter. Having said that, the cakes are excellent (I especially like their take on Sacher Torte), the beverages good and the serving staff do their... More

This place will surprise you not only with delicious pastries and desserts but also very good food if you go upstairs. It is so relaxing and nice to get a glass of champagne or cafe and just watch people coming and going. Take your time to enjoy and try the sweets you never had before. The variety is really big.

This is a charming and beautiful cafe next to the tourist office in St Moritz. The coffee and tea are no more expensive that anywhere else but the ambience is wonderful and the staff a delight. You can choose a lovely cake from those on view in the shop. Just looking at the beautiful selection of hand crafted chocolates is... More

I have been visiting St.Moritz yearly for over 40 years. I used to really look forward to a snack at Hanselmann's in the afternoon after skiing where I would run into many friends. The standard of the patisserie and bakery is still high and so are the beverages, but when you stray on to the menu to have a cooked... More

Had lunch here with my daughter straight off from our ride from Bernina express! Hot Chocolate is an amazing treat! Absolutely Divine!!! The dishes were traditional and they also offered continental selection. The Veal was surprisingly good. I expected the dessert to be great but to be served with amazing entrees was a great plus. The staff were very nice... More

Their hot chocolate is amazing! They also offer a variety of sweets and chocolates. The seating and ambiance is very warm. The only issue here is that they don't seem to have a defined system of invoice issuance for those who need it.

We were so excited to come here with my wife. The place looks nice as from the outside as for the inside. The range of the desserts and the cakes is amazing, we were hardly able to choose. Once we tried the cakes and also cappuccino, the excitement went to disappointment. The cakes nothing special, the coffee watery and too... More
