3. Collana Bar e Caffè Zürich

Italianità on the Sechseläutenplatz! The Collana offers authentic, seasonal Italian cuisine. Antipasti, salads, meat and fish are part of the daily menu. The pasta is handmade; crafted in-house at the Commercio Manifattura. The art of coffee is also celebrated here: from classic espresso, to cappuccino and caffè corretto – coffee lovers will appreciate the quality of choice.

On weekdays, breakfast is served until 11am. A wonderful start to the day. Even better: the brunches at the Collana! They are copious and a favourite with locals and visitors of the city. Served until 4pm, so take your time. No need to hurry… Or take away a bite of culture: grab a Pepito! Inspired by the street food dish that is popular in Latin America, the sandwich was first sold over the counter in Niederdörfli in 1980. Its popularity even led to the name and recipe being nationally copyrighted in 1997! Today, you can collect fidelity points with the Pepito Pass and enjoy every 9th Pepito for free!
