Friendly service, great ambience inside this old colonial building. Had the chicken curry, which tasted great. Serves ice cold beer which was a godsend. Also has a good selection of Paulaner beers if that is your thing!

Good Swiss food, including a great cheese fondue, and drinks with a friendly and funny owner. Lots of little curiosities, including the clock.

I liked this small cafe in old building with quirky things around, and daily blackboard menu. Nice and cool inside too.
