I always wanted to try this little place by Bellevue and I did it today. No smile and barely a welcome message, leaving with the impression to bother. The range of sandwich is impressive, however portions are small. I had a chicken bacon ciabatta which was unfortunately nit as nice as I expected regarding the comments left on the page.... More

We were walking through town and tried to stop here for lunch to grab a bite. We bought some sandwiches and relaxed by the lake. Their sandwiches were already premade, but they used quality ingredients and the flavors were great. Its a nice cheap place to eat during the day. It was hard for us to find many cheap places...

From the outside it looks modest but the Bellevue Deli offers some of the best, and best value food in Zurich. Due to a change in work I've not had chance to go for a while but, will head back as soon as I can.

It's my first days in Zurich and when I was having a walk around the city I decided to stop in this place to have a coffee. It's not one of the best coffees I have ever had, but it wasn't bad either. The sandwiches seem to be very tasty, but I wasn't hungry at all... Next time I will... More

I don't know how this place is able to offer such amazing sandwiches for the price. Zurich is a very expensive city and as a student visiting from the USA I needed to find some affordable eats and this place was perfect. A lunch at Mc Donalds costs more than a lunch here. Besides the low prices, the food is... More

I have visited the Bellevue Cafe twice over the last couple of months and I rate it amongst the best cheap eats in the Bellevue area. I have sampled the chili con carne served in a cup and it's a nice, filling, cheap meal on a cool Zürich winter day. They provide cheese if you prefer in your chili and... More

I live in Zurich and buy something most days from the Bellevue Deli. Their food is always fresh and delicious and beautifully garnished and displayed (we eat with our eyes!)! The sandwiches are different to anything else you'll find in Zurich, full of goodies, wonderful combinations and various delicious breads. The home-made soups, chilli and burritos are great, esp. in... More

This little place centrally located on Bellevueplatz by the lake is an oasis in this extremely expensive city. Prices range from a couple of bucks to under $9 for a carrot salad sandwich on a mini-baguette brimming with Swiss cheeses and fresh fruit. I especially like the smoked turkey with homemade cranberry/pesto sauce. The soups are delicious. I had cream... More

One usually would not expect anything out of the ordinary from a corner coffee, sandwich and pastry shop, but such is not the case at the Bellevue Deli. The quality of the food is outstanding, everything is spotless clean, prices are a very good value, and the service is extremely friendly and helpful. The management and staff clearly take a...

I was on business in Zurich and came across the bellevue deli in search of something good and reasonable for Zurich prices. The sandwiches are well presented, full of flavor and fresh. My favorite was the thon, which is a tuna sandwich and the tomato motzerrela was also quite good. they also have baked goods that are fantastic! The brownies... More

Description
At the Bellevue Deli – owned and operated by two former flight attendants – which is centrally located in Zürich, offers a wide range of sandwiches (over 40 varieties are made daily Monday through Friday – a reduced menu is offered on weekends) based on recipes garnered from the owners’ travels and layovers around the world. Complementing its extensive assortment is a selection of salads for those who prefer a lighter meal. And best of all… it is renowned for its reasonable prices. One has the option of sitting at outdoor tables, crossing the street to picnic lakeside, jumping on a ship for a leisurely lunch or dinner cruise, partaking of a meal along the picturesque Limmat River, dining al fresco on the steps of the nearby opera house, finding a quiet spot to nosh on one’s takeaway in the Old Town, or kicking back and enjoying it back in a hotel room. Weekday lunches also offer homemade chili con carne as well as other Tex-Mex fare. It is well known among the local English-speaking expatriate community.
