After the Kafischnaps’ opening in 2006 it became an instant favorite with people from the surrounding neighborhood. Since then – owing largely to its talented and good-natured staff – it has built up a following of people from all over the city – and sometimes, judging by how full the place can get in the evenings, it really seems like the entire city has been squeezed inside.
The bar/café itself used to be a former butcher’s shop and you can still see the beautiful original black and white tiles lining the floors and walls. Consistent with this ‘keep things the good old-fashioned way’ mentality, the underlying concept here is offer as much homemade stuff as possible (including their delicious schnapps) or at least to source locally.
By daytime, a favorite are the ‘Ufklappti‘ – open-faced sandwiches with a lot of great ingredients piled onto them while the nighttime lets the alcoholic side of the menu slide into focus – including of course the traditional Swiss beverage that gave this place its name.
