Café Boy

  Kochstrasse 2      (+41) 44 240 40 24     more than a year ago
Despite its name, this is actually a restaurant and it's hardly immature either. Just beyond Langstrasse, in a former working-class area, Café Boy occupies a building of Bauhaus-inspired elegance from the 1910s. Since autumn 2019, a cooperative from the ranks of the Social Democrats has taken over, and it serves ever-changing, locally sourced dishes. The polenta we had was fine-grained and creamy and the winter vegetables (think Brussels sprouts, carrots and the like) that came with it were refreshingly crunchy. It usually also has Swiss dishes like boiled meat or meat loaf on offer and one pasta, soup or similar dish for below 20 Sfr. Intended as a meeting point where political ideas can find a voice, it's a good place to drop by for a beer and some political discourse with the regulars.
