My favourite place to go in Basel. Everything is amazing and the owners are lovely. Great to stop off for lunch and people watch. I come here every time I'm in the area.

You will find this a very unique place: Grab a plate and take some freshly made Brötli, means more or less sandwiches from the bar. The waitress will see, what you got or ask if unsure. All sandwiches are fine for a quick lunch. Not...More
