I always have time to stop by Grande while I'm in Zurich and enjoy the view of the Limmat. The location and the quality of the drinks is great!

It is not easy to get a perfectly prepared Cappuccino in Zürich, as Zürich does not have much of a coffee culture. Grande is an exception. Watching the Baristas work is a pleasure. The have the know how and the passion _ and you can taste it.

Just picked up a takeaway coffee from Grande - one of my usual coffee stops - only to discover blood on the lid of the coffee cup, presumably from a cut finger. Not the most pleasant start for a morning coffee, and disappointing to see that basic hygiene is not observed. Will go elsewhere for my morning coffee from now... More

We have been there after a visit of the city of Zurich. The local was full up with people inside and outside although it was little bit cold in April.
