The food was fresh, tasty and well presented, menu just like in the Alps. Cakes were delicious and service was good. The cafe is clean with bright, charming Swiss-style decor. We went at 12.00 on a Saturday which was lucky as a queue quickly began to form, and we were not encouraged to linger. Quite pricey, but the food was... More

Went for the first time today - Sunday, arrived at 11.30am, the restaurant was busy but there were a few free tables. Tables were clean, and we noticed staff tidying and clearing tables as people vacated which is always a good sign (some places look so scruffy with dirty dishes left for ages). We ordered scrambled eggs with salmon and... More

We went to Zugers for breakfast and we're delighted by the selection. The Continental breakfast actually is exactly that bread with cold meats, cheese and jam, just like in Basel. Great way to start a cold day.

We visited at lunchtime and were greeted warmly by the waitress and given a choice of tables. We were left to make our selection and the waitress took our order and returned with our drinks and cakes, it was a very efficient service. We had Key Lime Pie which was a large slice and delicious! I saw other customers eating... More

Visited after reading reviews here and was disappointed by poor quality food and expensive prices. Baguette was very pale and had the consistency of that part-baked supermarket bread you bake at home. Chocolate mousse was quite bland. Coffee was very good though. I found that the radio blaring out chat and news detracted from the ambience. Background music is fine... More

You wont go wrong at Zugers with tasty food and a great selection of cakes and drinks. Rather pricey for what it is but nonetheless a great place to visit.

We found this to be a very friendly restaurant. We had to wait a little while for our lunch but they were very busy. The food was good and well presented. It's obviously very popular because there was a queue for tables so patience my be required.
