I went there with my boyfriend and we have been told that in this place they only accept cash, which I think is an unspeakable thing in 2018. We have been told that “we have to have cash if we want to pay”

Very pleasant , laid back cafe in the centre of Bern with nice jazz playing in the background. I enjoyed a tasty bowl of soup. My husband had the croque monsieur. Efficient service. Very opulent ladies’ loo!

On the main shopping street in Bern, this little watering hole is a great place for a stop to have a drink and re-charge the batteries. The service is rustic, but the ambiance with mainly locals is very nice. Terrace in summer.

Good people watching spot. We were there on Sunday lunch time with our daughters and took a table down on the cobbled street. A few drinks and some snack food, while watching the world go by. I recommend the Swiss Hot Dog... Very nice!

Walking around Berne to find somewhere for a pit stop and refreshment we found many other places very full and busy. This place is tucked away on a cobbled street in the heart of old town Bern. It isn't that big and has tables both...More

We came across this little coffee shop during a shopping trip in Bern. The street is a long one- lined with many shops but few places to stop for a drink or something to eat. The lady who served was quick and friendly- my friend...More
