Fodor's Review

With the splashing of the paper mill's waterwheel in the background, this is a restful spot for lunch or afternoon coffee (it's only open until 6 pm), whether in the medieval house or the streamside courtyard. The hand-scrawled chalkboard lists daily specials—generally salads, quiches, soups, and pasta dishes. After 3 pm hot food is no longer served, but sandwiches and other snacks are available. Hand signals are all you need to order a slice of one of the delicious homemade cakes on display. The all-you-can-eat Sunday brunch is one of Basel's best—try the Birchermüsli, the original, creamy, fruity version of muesli.
