I love my neighbourhood. And sometimes it's hard to leave it, because there's already so much to do and see. While being in Greece I read of that new coffee shop which just opened not too far away from Stauffacher. So I was actually not that sad to return back home, since you know - I go crazy for speciality coffee. The guys from Stoll Kaffee (a local coffee roasting company) finally opened their own shop. One of the owners (he's a chef) kindly explained me their brunch menu (Saturday only > careful, closed on Sundays). And it did sound mouthwatering. The menu seems to be a little different every weekend.. But you'll surely get an egg on brioche.
The shop by the way reminds me of my favourite places in Los Angeles. The interior is pretty minimalistic and I love that they got plenty of magazines to read. It's located directly next to VIU eyewear. So I finally tried on some new glasses and I got to take them back home to try on again. (it got delivered by mail - and you can order four pair of glasses at a time).
Ah and the coffee did not let me down! (as expected) :)
With all the hot weather we’ve been having it’s great to get out on the water and enjoy the lake. Temperatures are often noticeable lower when you leave the shore so it provides some respite from the sweltering heat of the city. But

Hi, We are based in Oberhasli, Zurich, and are looking for somebody to sit a few hours with our cat. We are away between Thursday 14/04 and Monday 19/04, and don't want him to get lonely. If you would like to pay our cat company while reading a book, doing your home office, or would like to stay overnight, we and Ninja would be very happy. Price negotiable, email me [email protected], and help on only some days would be sufficient, since we will have somebody come and feed him daily anyways.
