Switzerland’s Loveliest Cafés and Tea Rooms, Swiss Heritage 2nd edition

Kiosque St Francois in Lausanne.


If coffee or tea and architecture are amongst your passions, then search out the best spots in the country to enjoy them using as your guide the revised, 2nd edition of the Swiss Heritage booklet “The most beautiful cafés and tea rooms in Switzerland”.

While the country cannot boast a coffee culture as rich as that of Vienna, Budapest or Buenos Aires, there’s still a surprising number and variety of spots where you can indulge yourself. This booklet introduces you to 50 of the best locales nation-wide.


Café of the Ethnological Museum in Neuchatel.


In recent years, there’s been a revival of coffee and tea houses not only as places to enjoy a stimulating boost of caffeine but also as a rendezvous spot for culture, conversation and relaxation.

The establishments highlighted in this new Swiss Heritage publication offer beautiful backdrops in which to satisfy your taste buds, including venerable tea rooms, original historic interiors (see the train below), and modern additions that will likely become classics.


The Wagons in Winterthur.


If this coming Christmas you’re looking for an appropriate stocking stuffer for someone who enjoys taking coffee or tea in noteworthy settings, this may be the right gift for them. And you’ll be supporting the work of this important Swiss heritage society by treating them to something they’ll no doubt make good use of.
