Zurich is packed full of great places for a cup of coffee or a slice of cake with your breakfast and cafés where you can enjoy a late brunch while watching the world go by. We’ve brought the best breakfast and brunch joints in Zurich together into one list so you can test them out for yourself.
Fork & Bottle
The Fork & Bottle is something of an expat hub in Zurich, which probably has something to do with its full English breakfast option and the impressive choice of craft beers (over 60 on offer). But that, and the rather rustic décor, shouldn’t put you off as both the breakfast and brunch menus are packed with formidable, and quirky options like fried chicke and savoury sweet potato waffles or a spinach and mushroom breakfast burrito. If you’re in for a boozy brunch they also have a good choice of cocktails full of fresh ingredients.
Fork & Bottle, Allmendstrasse 20, 8002 Zürich, Switzerland, +41 44 201 18 17
Still looking for the perfect place for your summer party? We can’t think of anywhere better than in our garden with our awesome BBQ and a cold beer. Inquire at email@example.com

Stepping into Café Peclard is like stepping back in time. Its distinctive neo-Baroque style, with high back chairs, elaborately crafted furniture and beautifully designed ceilings, adds a distinguished touch to your breakfast. If that’s not all, Café Peclard is well-known for its traditional cakes and pastries and will leave you wanting more. A must-try is Peclard’s take on “Schoggi Mélange”, drinking chocolate mixed with whipped cream.

The world’s oldest vegetarian restaurants is also where you can try out one of Zurich’s best brunches, which is served until 2.30pm on Sundays. The food is offered buffet-style and you can pay by weight or 35CHF and eat as much as you want. You’ll find traditional delights such as pancakes, pastries and fresh fruit, likewise more exotic dishes such as eggplant curry, kachari and samosas. Reasonably priced and certain to leave you satisfied, Haus Hiltl comes recommended.
