I was there with a friend for a coffee and was amazed by the decor of the salon. If you like historical places, you should definitely visit Confiserie Schiesser. I had a waffle with caramel sauce, super delicious!

Tried many cakes and candies but they are too expensive for the quality they offer. Wanted to order a cake and the price was skyhigh. There are many other great places in Basel where you can get very good stuff for less.

Absolutely loved this Swiss coffee shop, which we visited several times on our recent stay. It is in the central Marktplatz opposite the Rathaus. It is full of old world charm, delicious cakes and chocolates and very friendly staff. Recommend the cafe gourmand.

We went into the cafe to get out of the rain whilst we killed some time for our flight. We went upstairs and sat by the window which had a lovely view of the town hall and little market going on below. We ordered a...More
