Breakfast and Brunch in Zurich

In Switzerland, breakfast is an integral part of everyday life. This is why many Zurich cafés and restaurants offer “Zmorgä” (breakfast).

Eating a hearty breakfast is a great way to start the day. Everyone visiting Zurich should try Bircher muesli at least once in their life – after all, the recipe for this nutritious dish was created here by physician Max Bircher-Benner. For many people, “Gipfeli” (croissants), plaited loaf with butter and jam, fried eggs, or cheese also belong on the breakfast table.

Below you can find a selection of Zurich restaurants and cafés that offer brunch or breakfast buffets. They are listed according to those that serve brunch buffets or breakfast menus only on the weekend and those that offer a weekday breakfast menu, too. Also included is a selection of breakfast options in rural locations around Lake Zurich.
