While I was at Zurich HB I realised that the Hallo cafe in Shopville, The Buffet Express kiosk, Blueberry and Il Baretto are all part of the same company, Candrian Catering, yet their coffee is not the same. They also run quite a few other food establishments around the station and further afield

The food at the Hirschen in Meilen is excellent

so much for that. But what explains the success of Starbucks in Zürich ? Simple. The AVERAGE of coffee served in Zürich was lousy and became not better but worse. Some, under the pressure from Starbucks and some other similar chains, like the Mandarin in Wollishofen, DID improve while others did NOT. Some café-owners simply did not and do not really care.


and now to the Turks. As the Manesse-Marmara got closed down I will have to try


http://restaurantvalentins.ch/


but hope that this place is up to ist promises


I in recent months/weeks tried
http://www.restaurant-cameleon.ch/it...lattbrugg.html
http://www.baeckerei-kuenzli.ch/ -- the Künzli is quite typical. They had clearly boring coffee until fairy recently, but have UPgraded quite nicely




************************************************** **************************************


There were and are others who also offer good Quality


I still remember the Café there before the Grappolo. Café Aeschlimann. Mum on her way to the local Migros got past there almost daily . When she saw the giril of the owners she went in as the Girl made good coffee but when her mother was in evidence she continued to the Rondo (now Café Wollishofen) or the Regina (now Cafe Medina)


I only can say that the Café Mandarin in Morgenthal Wollishofen last time (some 5 months ago) served excellent coffee, and can recommend the COIFFURE BILL next door, owned by Suzy Bill, a good schoolfriend of me

Re: Disgusting Coffee at Zurich HB

Been traveling thru Zuri HB for to many years on my daily commute and every morning I buy a coffee, schale or cappuccino depending what I feel like.

Compared to when I first started commuting thru the HB the coffee options have increased and improved hugely.

I wonder when KFC will open a branch there?
Fat chance I know.... perhaps someone else will copy their plan

http://www.cnet.com/news/done-drinki...e-eat-the-cup/

"At select KFC restaurants in the UK, the company will use a coffee cup that's fashioned out of a cookie wrapped in edible sugar paper and fortified with a layer of heat-resistant white chocolate that helps keep the cookie crispy and your coffee hot. As you drink your joe, the chocolate lining melts over time, making your coffee a bit sweeter and softening the cookie so it sort of melts in your mouth. Once you've finished drinking your brew, you can eat the cup for dessert. And, of course, the cup's zero waste"

here is what I found in the Internet


RE: KFC in der Schweiz



Jenes KFC welches vor vielen Jahren in Zürich am Bahnhofplatz eröffnet wurde, lief auch ganz ausgezeichnet. Die in Zürich für KFC Regie fphrende Bude ging dann aber in betrügerischen Konkurs.

ABER mit der erwähnten Vor-Geschichte wird sich jeder Unternehmer hüten, sich mit einem solchen Namen die Finger zu verbrennen


the Ccmpany which did the KFC business in Zürich went excellently, but then went into criminal bankruptcy



with THIS history businessmen will rather NOT use the KFC name

I no longer remember who the local Partner of KFC was, but the choice of your Partners always is YOUR fault, whatever happens.

Re: Disgusting Coffee at Zurich HB

Never know why we expect things to be different when we know darn well what to expect after having lived in Switzerland long enough. Coffee is not a core feature of this nation.

So, money mouth time no? Crack open the savings account and ensure that each and every day you have that perfect cup of java - no more worries - no more useless complaints?

Kees van der Westen Mirage

I'll donate CHF 50.- towards the fund IF I can swing by once a month for one little cup.
