Ginger's Gutschein Guide This week, Ronsters, I dined in Zum Guten Glück with my Prozentbuch, situated very close to the Schmiede Wiedikon tram stop. For those of you just joining and not entirlely sure what my section is all about, you can check out my first article here.
I had been to Zum Guten Glück before but the Gutschein promised 2 für 1 pancakes and as I had only sampled their waffles thus far (devine), I jumped at the chance to return. Naturally, being a twofer, my hubby was again dragged along for the ride.
Zum Guten Glück is one of those places that appeals to me through the full spectrum of my senses. I don't know when this became important to me. You would think taste would be enough (which it has in abundance), yet it is those cafes that please the eye as well as the tastebuds that become my regular haunts. Character and charm it has. The cafe itself takes on various moods depending on where you sit. The front is open, bright, loud and boisterous, and sets a tone where you can come together in a group to laugh and catch up. The back room sets a more subdued, quieter tone, a place for some one-on-one time, to gossip and share some secrets. It's usually very busy and as you can't make a reservation you can't choose your seats in advance. We managed to get a seat in the back this time around. Secrets and gossiping it was then.
We both ordered cappuccinos while deciding on what to eat (not so difficult when you were limited to pancakes only). Since meeting my hubby I've developed a taste for good coffee (maybe even become a bit of a snob) so when I find a place that does a great cup of coffee I usually don't forget it. This is definitely one of those places. Pancakes decided upon, it was a case of monkey see, monkey do with both of us ordering the pancakes with bacon, spinach and cheese. Only difference was I added a fried egg to the top of mine. Always a good idea.
The food arrived to two very wide-eyed and hungry boys and it did not disappoint. The combination of flavours was delectable. I tried, with every fiber of my being, not to eat it too fast but I think I failed. Delicious. Praise be to Zum Guten Glück, which has now officially become our regular Sunday Brunch outlet.
All in all I actually felt kind of guilty using our Gutschein in the end, I mean the food itself is very reasonable with the pancakes costing only 14.50 CHF. We shall return and I can't recommend it enough readers so get up and make your way on over.
I've told you before but another warning can't hurt. Fraudsters are active on all housing platforms in Switzerland. Also on my pages. Unfortunately, I can't guarantee that all offers are genuine. I do my best to blacklist any i catch but
