In the atmosphere of the book of Rosetta Loy "The Chocolate from Hanselmann" you will have one of the best hot chocolate in the world. Do not forget the "Nusse Torte" (Nuts pie) from the engadf\ine vally. Historically the pastry chefs from the Habsburg court were from this valley. You will understand why now!

Expresso and ristretto were total disappointments. 3 small chocolates to accompany expresso and ristretto was average for Swiss quality. One of the specialities of the Engadine region is a nut shortbread-like pie called gateau de noix (in french) and this one from Hanselmann is just a bit above average in taste and quality. They were renovating the location in the... More

The choclatiest cakes served with hot chocolate are the perfect way to thaw after a day's skiing. Hanselmann has been a St Moritz institution for generations, deservedly so.

it is quite old fashioned, but simply THE place to go for a coffee and croissant in the morning, a simple lunch at noon or a tea with cake or the famous and yummee Silserbretzel - before baking it is dipped into a saline solution - and before serving sliced in half and filled with butter - I guess pretty...

Whether you come for breakfast or a mid-afternoon snack, Hanselmann's gives you a great snack with a view. The pastries are fine and service is seamless. Ignore the crinkles and bumps in the room and focus on the views from the terrace room. Sooner or later they'll chose to renovate. One minor irritation is that you cannot order pastries from...

We called in for morning coffee . This is what Swiss Cafe's are all about locals having morning coffee and watching tourists like ourselves trying to trying to decide on what to have , while trying to blend in with the locals. The selection was very good and the service first class. The view from the terrace window was good... More

Foir the first time in many vicits the place was empty. There were more staff than clients and the terrace room which one always had to wait for was sadly empty and all tables free. We had nice flavored coffee, rather weak, and the strudel was layered with lots of thinly sliced tart apples. The creme anglaise was oddly tart... More

It is located at the heart of St. Moritz old town, in a building with a very interesting exterior. The food is somewhat expensive, even for Switzerland, but on par for St. Moritz. The service was friendly and the coffee was good, although the green tea could be a bit better. We had a lovely time.
