Had dinner in the restaurant that was full with locals. After waiting 15 min they finally found a table for me. My order came pretty fast and it was very good, local specialty. They have a varied menu with nice sweets too. Price is average...More

We came to get a solid breakfast, that included eggs, bacon, and toast after our first jet-lagged night in Zurich. The cappuccino was also excellent.

The food is really good, it's super cozy and airy. I've been there for dinner and brunch and would recommend both! The service is a tad slow though when the place is busy (there are only two servers, one being mainly a barista) so if...More

Description
Continuing a tradition since 1981 For over 30 years, Café Restaurant Mohrenkopf has been a popular meeting place in the heart of Zurich's old town at Niederdorfstrasse 31. Its interior design is a winning combination of contemporary style and traditional elements of coffee house culture. The café serves fresh, home-made pastry, Swiss specialities and seasonal dishes. Among the specialities are freshly made Capuns 'Sursilvans', juicy chicken breast with home-made herb butter and of course the café's signature dish: a large selection and variety of home-made 'Mohrenköpfe' (chocolate-coated marshmallow treats). Café Restaurant Mohrenkopf is open all year round, serving breakfast, lunch, coffee and cake or a apéro drink on the terrace.
