ST. GALLEN | Kaffeehaus opened in 2010, inside a former police station in the old 1898 Linsebühl post office. Owner Gallus Hufenus has done an amazing job with the interior, which makes the most of the beautiful old building’s bones and heritage elements. Stepping inside Kafeehaus feels like stepping into a bygone era. It’s all part of Hufenus’ desire to create a coffee shop that has a sense of place, rather than one that feels like it could be in a trendy part of town anywhere in the world.

The venue might feel old world, but the coffee certainly doesn’t. Hufenus, who learned about coffee while working and living as a writer in Buenos Aires, offers an assortment of espresso and filter based brew methods. Think nitro cold brew, Chemex, and V60. All beans are single origin and sourced mostly from South America. In fact Hufenus makes as much of an effort as possible to personally visit each of the farms that his coffee is sourced from, to ensure the quality of the product and the everything is being done ethically at all stages of the bean to cup process. It all adds up to make Kaffeehaus one of the best places for coffee in St. Gallen.

The cafe holds regular readings, talks and concerts, which add to its charm. When we first visited, a man was playing relaxing classical tunes on a piano while customers sat down enjoying their coffee and a good book. Great coffee, and a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the world – fantastic.

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.
