Good & Trendy Coffee
Grande Café & Bar1
Why locals love it
Grande is a really small Café located not far from the main station and just next to the main river of Zürich, the Limmat. Its nice small terrace is always full on sunny days, mainly because their coffee probably is one of the best in town. The crowd hanging there goes from Coffee addicts to students chilling, good spot to start you day.
Why you should visit it
To start your day with a good coffee (not always easy to find in the German part of Switzerland, where usually coffee is more like dark-colored water), or to try one of the many good Gins they have. Maybe not both on the same time. Their hot chocolate is also nice.
Since it's really small, it's usually quickly full. Enhance your chances to find a spot by going there when it's sunny and you can use the terrace.
