The Beckeria just opened its doors yesterday and if you’re a commuter I’ll probably see you regularly there from now on. In the morning, they offer fresh bread, croissants and allegedly the best coffee in town. Lunch comes with bratwurst, salads, sandwiches (which are very nice, I ate three at the pre-opening and especially liked the veggie version with beetroot). In the evening, come back for after work drinks with your mates. You see, Beckeria is not just a bakery, it’s a place to stay and watch the world go by while sipping a drink or coffee and eating some crispy carbs. Monday to Saturday from 6.30 am, Lagerstrasse 33
Is there a better smell than fresh bread in the morning? Maybe coffee...

An ice cream pop up? Now? In summer? Who comes up with these crazy ideas? But nevertheless a new ice cream pop up is starting this Thursday in the Plaza Bar with the ice cream provided by new producers Nanimale . They are open from Wednesday to Sunday so if you are in the neighbourhood pop in and give them a try.
Constantly increasing pressure to perform, new life situations and everyday obligations increasingly ensure in society that there is often little time for recreation and leisure. We have many interests but little time to pursue them, often have a limited circle of friends depending on our hobbies. It is almost impossible to take everything sufficiently into account and thus maintain the necessary balance in life.
This all makes it more important that we spend our time on what really makes us happy and that we can participate in social life.
An active and fulfilling life for all - together, instead of alone!
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, and help on only some days would be sufficient, since we will have somebody come and feed him daily anyways.
