Switzerland are well-known for artistic skills of chocolate crafting. That’s what I had in mind when strolling in Old Town (Altstadt) part in Zurich as my I venture through many cafes and vendors. Finally, I found café Schober as outside of café were packed with people at 3 PM. That is a good sign of a good café.
I went into café and ask for the recommend menu of the café and ordered the chocolate cake with creamy chocolate fillings. Honestly, it is such a tough choice to choose between these yummy looking desserts T_T
Then I headed to second floor of the café with a classic style decoration.
The consistency of the cake is perfect. Not too dry and not too fragile. The level of sweetness and bitterness of cocoa is insanely good. Creamy filling also improves my satisfaction on cake. I enjoyed this cake till last piece of this amazing dessert.
After I finished my dessert break, I went strolling in old town and visited Kunsthaus (The Museum for Modern Art in Zurich) for “The Gates of Hell” bronze sculpture by Auguste Rodi. The bronze sculpture is a vision of the afterlife inspired by Dante’s Inferno from the “Divina Commedia”. I did spend some time to enjoy the moment around the place. Quite an amazing sculpture in my opinion.
That’s all for this review. Personally, I think the café and Kunsthaus in a good choice for Zurich old town strolling. See you later and hope you have a wonderful day 😊.
