This cafe is located next door to the Jetwash laundromat which is one of very few laundromats in Bern. Take the number 20 tram (one every 6 minutes or so) from outside the Bern Bahnhof and get off at the stop called Lorrain. The cafe has a relaxed simple vibe, with friendly service and mostly locals enjoying the wholesome daily... More

I went there for a concert. The place is little, hot without air, and the acoustic it's terrible. It's better to have a drink outside even if is so close to a main road. Just came here because invited by friends. Will not come here alone...

I sounded good, so encouraged by the friendly service, I returned after finishing the laundry and had the "menu" lunch of fried polenta slices with roasted tomatoes and... More

It took me years of living in Bern to find this place, and I'm very happy that at long last I have. Cafe Kairo has a funky-retro atmosphere, and when there isn't a concert on I think my parents would be as comfortable there as I am. The servers are a bit busy, but very friendly and happy to answer... More
