Foir the first time in many vicits the place was empty. There were more staff than clients and the terrace room which one always had to wait for was sadly empty and all tables free. We had nice flavored coffee, rather weak, and the strudel was layered with lots of thinly sliced tart apples. The creme anglaise was oddly tart... More

It is located at the heart of St. Moritz old town, in a building with a very interesting exterior. The food is somewhat expensive, even for Switzerland, but on par for St. Moritz. The service was friendly and the coffee was good, although the green tea could be a bit better. We had a lovely time.

Had lunch there in a window seat watching horse racing on the frozen lake. Magic. Excellent service, great food and the best cakes.

Champagne truffles outstanding,unfortunately can not be sent stateside anymore. Some tables with great views expect to see many old timers returning to their favorite tea room.

A place that was founded years ago and will last forever. The swiss cakes are the reason for my daily visit during my stay. The place looks like it needs renovation but it doesn't disturb the enjoyment. Try the hot choclait! The weak point- unfriendly waitresses.

The apple strudel and hot chocolate with real whipped cream is one of the best treats in St. Moritz. Great views of the lake are an added feature to this true Swiss experience.

This is where everyone goes for apres-ski tea, or my favourite, Sunday lunch. Spectacular views of the mountains - and the patrons.

Another tradition of St. Moritz, this beautiful old building has to be seen...then you must go in and enjoy their cakes, chocolates and whatever else you think of; it's all wonderful. For a better view but not such gorgeous surroundings go upstairs to the somewhat old fashioned restaurant.

During our stay in St. Moritz, my husband and I made several trips to Hanselmann's. I think what attracted me first was the adorable window display of the Noah's ark with all the mascarpone animals. Additionally, the cafe/store had on display all the various sizes of their famous Swiss tart, a perfect gift to take home and/or take a small... More
