ZÜRICH | Cafe Henrici is a cafe and bar in Zurich’s Niederdorf neighbourhood that opened in June 2009, inspired by San Francisco’s coffee culture. New owners took the reigns in 2019, and thankfully they share the same passion and dedication towards coffee as the original owners.

The space is causal and youthful, with an interior that is belied by its location. Outside the cafe you’re surrounded by the beauty of old Zurich while inside it’s a modern assortment of coloured tables and chairs, and street art on the walls that’s been painted by local artists.

The coffee here is fantastic, and is what Cafe Henrici is known for. They work closely with gourmet roasting house Rast as well as other speciality roasting shops, sourcing the best ethically sourced beans from around the world. Espresso based drinks are fantastic here, as are the filter options and creative coffee-based cocktails.

If you’re hungry, there’s an assortment of cakes and pastries on offer, including quiches and flammkuchen, a kind of Alsacian pizza covered with fromage blanc or crème fraîche, thinly sliced onions and lardons.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
