The Angry Monk by the Tinguely fountain does a nice brunch. Its quite casual and a nice place if its sunny and you can sit out.

Re: looking for brunch in basel

My husband (Italian-Swiss chef) and I (from Chicago) just took over a restaurant in the Basel area, Restaurant Schlössli in Aesch. We offer brunch on Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm. There is a bread buffet for 10 chf, or with eggs, bacon and sausages made to order for 20 chf. The rest is ordered a la carte: quiche and salad and a few more 'lunchy' items. The coffee is really good, but no free refills (I couldn't quite convince my husband that was a good idea, though we do give tap water and free refills: one of those little things I miss from the States.)

It's a cozy location with indoor and outdoor seating with a great view, kid-friendly as well. You take the number 11 tram all the way to the end of the line in Aesch. There are also great hikes that start in Aesch so if you want to combine some outdoor activity with a nice breakfast this is the place to come.

Of course, the restaurant is also open for lunch, dinner or just coffee or drinks from Tuesday to Saturday, 10 am to 10 pm.
Have a look at the website (in English), www.schlossli.ch, and hope to see you sometime soon!

Re: looking for brunch in basel

There's a farm at the top of Margarethen Park that does a nice brunch on weekends, it is more in the way of Swiss brunch than American but it only costs 15 - and I can recommend it.

Re: looking for brunch in basel

I can recommend you the Zic Zac Cafe in Basel, close to Allschwil : www.ziczac-basel.ch

They have a buffet or "a la carte" on Sundays and if the weather is nice you can seat outside.

Enjoy your meal !

Re: Sunday brunch in Basel?

Schlossli in Aesch (end of number 11 tram) is lovely - a proper mix of continental & english style breakfast/brunch. It's run by a Brit/Swiss couple I believe.

Re: Sunday brunch in Basel?

There's a big room at the Badische Banhof with Sunday brunch, a relaxed, slightly boho atmosphere,
The Teufelhof bar also does a nice one.

Re: Sunday brunch in Basel?

You can also try ZigZac. http://www.ziczac-basel.ch/

They have a Brunch Buffet from 10 until 2 for 39 CHF/person.
But they have everything from Breakfast to Dinner foods. Its awesome.

Re: Brunch in Basel Area

Yep, it closed in January this year - real shame as it was lovely, although we never went as much as we'd liked to have done.
