Perhaps the oldest and chicest café in Zurich! This elegant café is a must visit for people who love the sweet stuff and/or the finer things in life.
I have read about the Conditorei Café Schober before travelling to Zurich. The café has several names which have only added to my confusion, such as Peclard Schober, Peclard Café, Café Schober and Conditorei Schober. Rest assured, they are all one and the same!

The conditorei dates back to 1842 when it was founded by Eberle and taken over by Schober who ran the shop for 66 years until his death at 92. It is now managed by Peclard who continues the tradition. People, this is the real Swiss chocolate and patisserie deal.
There is no question that the café oozes rich history and quality confection products, but there?s more to that. This café has an elegant Neo-Baroque interior design which makes a visit here a very lovely and special experience.
