We paid 50 bucks for 2, drinks, coffees and tips included. Shame my brunch picks (5 out of 15 things) were barely filling, when there was little cooking. I would call these "snacks", therefore the price range is not appropriate.

This is the old train station right next to the current train station in Fribourg. The interior isn't particularly warm or inviting since it's a bit dark, old, and is lacking warm lighting or furnishings. However, the cup of coffee I had was very good....More

A nice and cozy place next to the train station of Fribourg. People are friendly and the ambiance is nice! If you're looking for a casual place to have some drinks, then that's the place to go...

This is a very cool place where everyone hangs out after work on a friday night. Saturday is also packed with a good atmosphere. Drinks are probably the cheapest in the whole of Fribourg's nightlife. Age range is 20-40

Simple place, nice decoration. Competitive price and friendly staff. At midday I only had the choice between two meals. It was not an issue for us. The service was very kind and efficient.

Ouvert en septembre 2007, le Café Culturel de l'Ancienne Gare est le centre névralgique du bâtiment de l'ancienne gare de Fribourg. Navigant entre les concerts et spectacles du Nouveau Monde ainsi que les festivals du Festival International du Film de Fribourg et le Belluard Bollwerk Festival, il est un lien convivial et gourmand entre ses partenaires. Ouvert tous les jours, il propose, au centre ville de Fribourg et à deux pas de la gare, des menus hétéroclites quotidiens, des découvertes culinaires nocturnes, des bières et des vins qui raviront les plus curieux. Le Café Culturel de l'Ancienne Gare organise également des expositions, des spectacles, des concerts et des événements ponctuels organisés mensuellement. Il vous sera proposé, de plus, des apéros et des soupers dans le cadre unique d'un hall de gare construit en 1872 et classé monument historique. Ce cadre se prête à une atmosphère à la fois sereine en journée et festive en soirée.
