Always full, make a reservation or need to wait. They seat you and then you order in the cashier, get a number and they serve you. Excellent food. The avocado toast is super good, waffles delicious, hot choco great too!

I have been to this restaurant for a few times, no chance to come for brunch if you don’t make a reservation in advance. It’s a great place to chill out for afternoon and of course brunch in weekends.

I was expecting something more for what we paid (CHF45.40 = €40.25) 2 normal drinks and tasteless breakfast.
