Food and restaurant prices in Zurich are very high. The Aess Bar is an inexpensive alternative. It is set back from Niederdorfer at Stuessihofstatt, so it may be missed. According to their web site they sell surplus product from local bakeries. Prices are very low...More

I love stopping by this great place and by my bread or a sweet treat for the day. Great prices for great quality. Day old bread and sweets don't need to go to waste.

Very cheap food because yesterday's leftovers from good bakers and restaurants are recycled. Served witha decent fresh coffee. Really good concept in expensive Zurich.

I got a sausage bun, and the cashier kindly heated it up for me. Everything looked super fresh and mouth watering. I wasn't able to tell whether it was really at least a day old! Water is free. There is even a guest book where...More

Instead of binning pastries and sandwiches at the end of the day, they are given to this place and sold the day after. We got a really nice sandwich and a cake for 5chf! For any backpackers or students in Zurich, this is the cheapest...More

Fresh from yesterday, that's the motto of this tiny but well stocked place for sandwiches, cakes and other bakery snacks. About a dozen bakery stores provide excellent "left-overs" for consumtion the day following production at reduced prices. One way of proving that prepared food in...More
