At Café Sprüngli you’ll want to try the house speciality Luxemburgerli macaroon. At the main café on the Bahnhofstrasse you can sample a wide array of chocolates, cakes and tarts alongside your morning coffee. The Sprüngli brand goes back to 1836, when the first store opened in Zurich, so you know you are in safe hands when your order here.

Near to the Paradeplatz, La Stanza is a busy coffee joint straight out of Italy. The sharply dressed waiters dish out sweet Mediterranean treats and traditional coffee machines spurt out the best espresso in town. Plus if you’re in the mood for freshly baked brioche for breakfast, then La Stanza is the place to find it.
By its sheer popularity among the locals, particularly the hip and happening young crowds, you can tell Café des Amis is a good place to check out. You’ll find it difficult to grab a seat for the Sunday morning/afternoon brunch, which is served until 4pm, so make sure you book ahead. With its laidback and chilled vibe (don’t expect speedy service), Café des Amis is a good spot to start off a relaxing day.
