I visited this lovely on a sunny Saturday. Winter is to go it’s a little cold outside but not that much. Had a coffee and a brownie there, read for a while as well. Very nice and cute. Good for spending the time yourself ,...good for a nice chat with friends there. Nearby my new apartment actually, I will definitely visit againMore

Never thought to find such a place in Zurich. Fits the name completely. Small and cozy. Stopped by for a cup of coffee (it's quite a bit on the outside of the city center). Really good, tasty coffee and a small, hidden, lovely terrasse. Glad...we stepped by!More

Oozing character, beautiful little courtyard nook more reminiscent of an Italian alleyway than a typical Swiss garden restaurant. Real coffee machine, home made biscuits. Leather chairs and aged tables. We'll be back with friends.

The location is a bit difficult to find but it's precisely a secret perfect sport and what made it special. We enjoyed the brownies and two cup of coffee upstairs; the charming and smiling lady-waistress was lovely as well. Such a perfect balance between "handmade-feeling...home alike" with the warmth of the wood and a modern touch with the others decorations - such a great taste, really, very impressed. The coffee were strong and big, we loved them, it deserves the money (Zürich standards :) ) Will go back there for sure, 100% authentic, its the best experience that we had with a café in all Switzerland and Jeez we love coffee places :) Thank you!More

The Kafi Paradiesli is a charming little café located at the side of a building with part original old walls. Tram #3/#8 to Hottingerplatz is the closest public transit stop. There is a very nice patio seating area under trees. Inside, it is more of...a split level café. The main floor has several tables, there is the main counter at the entrance and a slanted roof attic seating area has one table and a set of three old, rustic movie theater type seats which is where I took a seat. The very friendly hostess gave me a welcoming greeting as I ordered my hot tea (6.50CHF) which was served with a small cookie. They also offer light and healthy breakfast items, breads, desserts, snacks, hot/cold beverages, bar, lunch and mid-afternoon meals. They have newspapers for guest and very clean restrooms. The other customers were also very friendly. It was a quiet and enjoyable visit to this little gem. Recommended.More

This is a really nice fascinating place in Zurich, not so crowded, not mainstream, nice. They ahve a little art gallery inside, which has nice exhibitions. Great place if you don't just want conventional coffee.

In the middle of nowhere but such a breath of fresh air from some other Swiss cafes. Service is very agreeable, as is the coffee. Food wise, the plate of cheese and meats is not only pretty good value but also tasty too. I would...definitely recommend.More
