I showed up at the embassy two weeks ago with my laptop bag (obviously didn't know). I was allowed to take only a document and could deposit the cell phone with the security. Didn't know what to do with the laptop bag, but one of the security guys was helpful - he said a small shop, which is actually a bakery that is 300m from the embassy will store the bags for you for 3 CHF and that is what I did.
Yes, that's been mentioned several times here over the years. I reckon they do a good side business from it.

Yes, I went to the US embassy 2 times and left my belongings on that Bakery. They even have papers with numbers to identify your belonging that you can take with you as a receipt. I didn't remember how much it was, but it's not expensive. (I was definitely not the only one that's using their service before going in to the embassy)
