Fodor's Expert Review Café de la Fonderie

$$ Fribourg French

MasterChef  TV series participants Benoît Waber and Leonard Gamba are earning top honors with their gastronomic café, set in a spacious, renovated warehouse near the university. The chefs create a unique, limited menu each week, with the goal of titillating the senses using unusual or unexpected ingredients. Dishes like grilled perch with lemon caviar and caper flowers provide a zesty take on fine dining—for half the price of other similar restaurants.
