Gran Café Motta

The Gran Café on Limmatquai - an institution for decades - was completely renovated in 2010. It now oozes Italian elegance - bright parquet floors, a long metallic bar - tastefully combined with playful, modernist elements. The coffee is strong and tasty, especially the Indonesian blend. The ceiling height of more than 4.5 metres gives the place the grandezza of a Gran Café. Italian paninis and appetizers - and probably the best outdoor seating for watching the world go by on Limmatquai.
