At this small café-cum-restaurant near Idaplatz, crêpes and galettes are the order of the day. Whether sweet or savoury, they’re made with love and fresh, seasonal ingredients, and the portion size is on the right side of generous. There’s also a small selection of mains, soups and salads, while brunch is available at the weekend.
The place is pretty in a colourful way, and the old front door, wooden counter and two rugs near the bar add a nice touch of homeliness. When the sun’s out it’s great to get a table outside and watch the hustle and bustle (well, almost) of Bertastrasse. Good to know: while most other places in the area close at 18:00 on a Sunday, the good folks here are dishing out food and drinks until 23:00.
This café takes a little piece of Bretagne straight to Zurich’s Kreis 3. In the process, it comes across so effortlessly French I’m not sure why the place isn’t called ‘Chez Babette’. All that is missing, really, is people shouting ‘Garçon!’ when trying to get the waiter’s attention.
