“Terrace with a View”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

We had coffee & cake on the top floor terrace of the Jelmoli Department Store. The service was good and the coffee & cake were excellent. It is a lovely (slightly posh) place to relax, and we loved it. Zurich is not a cheap place to eat or drink, and we thought that the prices were fair given the location. If in Zurich again we will definitely return.

“Jelmolis food court ”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

Jelmoli had been around since my early childhood. It is a Zürich staple. It is very expensive. Not ideal for shopping and nothing original either. Except the relatively new food court. It is worth a visit. The bakery is fantastic. I had the laugenbrot with salmon. I don't usually like sandwiches but this was one of the best sandwiches I have had.

Reviewed 28 July 2014

We had a lovely drink with cakes at the top floor of Jelmoli restaurant. The service was average, but the quality of cakes was not bad.

“Price performance -- one of the best downtown Zurich”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

The Jelmoli is perfect for a quick lunch, self-service but with table cleaners that remove all dishes. The lunch is very good for its price. Of course, be realistic, it is not a two star restaurant. But price performance-wise, it is one of the best I know.

“In the basement. Bread was delicious!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Quiche was great and fresh.
We also had the chocolate mouse
and a salad.
For a stool we were not comfortable but the delicious bread made up for it.
