Café culture Splendour in the coffee house

The Swiss are keen coffee consumers and they like to drink their cup in the company of others. The numerous cafés - often extensions of confectionary shops - are part of Switzerland's everyday life and the country's architectural heritage.

A booklet by the Swiss Heritage Society, Die schönsten Cafés und Tea Rooms in der Schweiz (Switzerland's most beautiful cafés), presents a selection of 74 sites from across the country.

It includes traditional cafés, stylish espresso bars, wood-panelled interiors in the rural Lower Engadine valley and light-flooded new sweet shops in Geneva, as well as architectural objects from Basel in northern Switzerland to Lugano in the Italian-speaking south.
