The “garden” of the restaurant Ziegel Oh Lac at Rote Fabrik is situated directly at the lakeside. Enjoy the delicious organic food, forget about everydays stress and just relax. And you’ll always have the possibility to jump into the refreshing lake before or after you satisfied your hunger. Check the Rote Fabrik website for concerts. During summer time, they normally take place at the ouside summer stage.

Not very known is the hidden garden of Tantpis at Kreis 5. It is a good place to rest after an exhausting shopping tour around Josefstrasse. Order a homemade cake or other dishes from all around the world during daytime and a choice of products of the eastern or mediterranean cuisine at nights. Try the delicious Mezze.

At Café Chez Andy, owner Andy Grenacher serves Kalte Plättli (12 CHF), great homemade cakes, Croque Monsieur, coffee and other delicacies. Now in summer time, you can savor them in the wonderful garden, under huge fig or kaki trees. This fairyland kind of place really is worth a visit with its quarters charm! Go see the little food shop and the art exhibition as well.

Another city juwel is the Italian restaurant Rosso with its summer terrasse towards the railway tracks. Great Pizza and other Italian dishes, a glass of good wine and the industrial sourrounding make you feel very metropolitan.
