A superb location overlooking the Market Square. Use it as a teashop with delicious pastries or for lunch with a range of light but satisfying dishes all served in a gorgeous old style ambience. If in Basel don't miss a real treat.

Stopped by on a Saturday afternoon and found the place very busy. The downstairs area sells some attractive looking chocolates whereas the upstairs sitting area offers a nice view over the market and an okay selection of food and drinks.
