Tea Time in Zurich

I recently went to Zurich for the weekend with my flatmate, Anne, (who’s blogging about books here, btw) and apart from climbing up mountains, eating Rösti and hanging out on boats, we also had the occasional cup of tea to warm us up since it was sunny but bloody cold most of the time.

When we got to Zurich we had about an hour to kill before our room was ready (which was epic since it had a purple bathroom with a tv in it), so we had some lunch/second breakfast at Café Bauer, the bakery right next to the hotel.

We had some proper Swiss food on our last day in Zürich (after we finally managed to find a restaurant that had Geschnetzeltes & Rösti but wasn’t outrageously expensive), but went to a cute little sushi place, Negishi Sushi Bar, on our first night. The sushi was tasty and I really liked the tea I got with it (featuring ginger, lemongrass, ginseng, orange peel, and mint).

After trying to get a table on Sunday around lunch time – but failing miserably because it was absolutely packed – we went to Kafi Dihei on Monday for breakfast. It’s a smallish café with a really cute and cosy atmosphere (if you ever randomly find yourself in Zurich I highly recommend checking it out!) and we got a super tasty breakfast that was fairly inexpensive.
