I was their for lunch with my friend who lives not far from that place. I had green salad with avocado and my friend had soup of the day. Both were wonderful. Highly recommended for lunch in that area. Staff is very nice and helpful

I ate here twice while in Zurich.. Breakfast was very good - organic eggs, bacon, coffee and toast. Lunch was even better - we had the menu 1 (prixe fixe).. Perfectly cooked veal in a cream mustard sauce with potato wedges and a sautéed spinach...More

도로변에 위치하고 있어 찾기에 편하다. 서비스직원들이 생각보다 친절하지 않은건 사실이다. 커피도 보통수준이며 케잌이나 디저트가 꽤 맛있는 편이다. 브런치로 이 장소를 택하기에는 가격대비 별로 추천하고 싶지않다. 가끔 차한잔을 하거나 커피를 하기엔 좋은곳일 뿐이다. 감탄이나 와 좋다라는 기대를 하기엔 충분하지 않은 곳이며 꽤 가까운 거리에 살고 있다면...More

I have a small twinstroller and we spotted a good, calm corner to sit down. Although the place was half empty, the waiter came to complain about the stroller. I tried to show that we are not blocking anyone, but no - the stroller should...More

I've been here twice for brunch. The garden is nice during the warmer months and I would give 5 stars to its location and atmosphere. However, Des Amis being one of the top-rated brunch locations in Zurich, I was quite disappointed by their plain menu....More

A cool place close to the city center to have a drink or a light dinner. Only negative is the service which is very very slow and not really professional

We went here for lunch, actually looking for another cafe, but stopped here as it was raining. We were in luck! We had the scrambled eggs and bacon, and agreed that they were the best eggs and bacon we have had in a long time.

Really chilled place to have a coffee and / or brunch. We recently went on a bit of a drizzly Sunday and enjoyed ourselves. We had a 1 year old with us but felt at ease and made comfortable by the staff. The cake slices...More
