There is something I like about small cafés. I guess it might be that the lack of space makes it cozy, or that I like to see how ingenious they are to create seating. The kafi paradiseli definitely fits in this category of small café, which means that I particularly like it!

The name, which we could translate into paradise café, is well chosen. Several features, in my eyes, turn it into somewhat of a paradisiac place one should stop at. The old woody furniture on an old parquet floor that creaks under your steps is definitely one of them. Another highlight is the outdoor space where small tables are hidden under lush vegetation. In the summer you will also be able to grab figs from the fig tree without leaving your seat. Finally, I particularly like the effort put into making the toilet a beautiful and pleasant place, which is in my opinion too often forgotten.

If you are unlucky and kafi paradiseli is already full, you can still grab a coffee to go from the window overlooking the street. And even if you might miss the fake bird sound in the toilet of the café, you can still enjoy Hofstrasse street, its paved road, and old houses. I also enjoy the parallel street, the Dolderstrasse, where some houses present vivid ornamental paintings. A bit higher on the Dolderstrasse, you can branch off and enter the Wolfbachtobelweg which brings you to a small park along a creek.
