This cafe has been open for over 100 years and was frequented by historical figures such as Lenin, Einstein, and now me. We visited on a recommendation as they serve a burger atop Rosti (A swiss potato dish) and it seemed to make sense to try a swiss version seeing as we live here.
Being a cafe, and not a restaurant, the menu is small and there’s only one burger on offer. That’s not a slight on the venue, as i said, it’s not a restaurant! What was disappointing was that the rosti burger recommended was not on the menu. They changed the menu and the burger was served in focaccia and with a side order of Rosemary Chips
I was surprised to find such a tasty burger in a small cafe on the corner of Bellevue. The Chef Sauce on the burger was unique and the Focaccia bun tasted fresh. The Rosemary Chips were a nice change from the usual fries on offer in most venues, I was half expecting what the English call crisps due to the wording on the menu. A common problem on European menus.
I’ve tried to visit for a drink in the evenings in the past but it’s always full. It’s a popular place due to the location and fine aesthetic for sure. Steeped in history and protected by a preservation order it’s a great place for tourists and locals alike.
A well located and decorated place for a drink for sure, for burger aficionados there are other venues in the vicinity. That’s not to put down the one burger available but this blog is more focused on the meaty side of the menu than the drinks available.
