Zurich: Cafe Felix am Bellevue

One thing I love about the coffee group that I’ve joined is that I am getting a chance to visit cafes and restaurants I hadn’t been to yet. This week we met at Cafe Felix am Bellevue. I’ve heard about Felix but for some reason never got round to going there even though I’m in the area weekly.

My first impression was one of delight, it is bright, with high ceilings and the first thing that catches your eyes is the massive displays of roses trailing down the walls! At first its aesthetically pleasing but as you realise the roses are plastic and that they’re just about everywhere it does start to feel a bit OTT.


The atmosphere is pleasant, if a bit noisy due to the huge room, but they gladly accommodated our group of 11, rearranging tables and chairs for us.

Their afternoon, apero menu is vast with almost too much to choose from! I loved the menu page dedicated to champagnes and prosecco which I could definitely have indulged in! Most of the ladies ordered coffee or tea with one or two having from the fresh juice selection and a variety of cakes and snacks were ordered. I tried two of the crostini on offer – one with brie and the other with smoked salmon. IMG_1001While the crostini were quite small the generous toppings made up for it and I enjoyed it.

The cafe is huge with a large outside seating area (as usual, mostly used by smokers) as well as having an upstairs dining area overlooking the rest of the cafe. IMG_0996

At Sfr24.60 for a cappuccino, the 2 crostini and a cola, it was value for money and definitely worth another visit.
