Like many afternoons (or mornings, depending on our schedule), Mr. Mad Cow and I went to our favorite cafe, Kafischnaps, to work today. Kafischnaps, or KS as we often refer to it, opened up in our neighborhood about a year and a half ago. Since then, we have become regular patrons, to the point where some of the wait staff actually know us. While they may not know our names, they know our orders. Our favorite waitress starts brewing my cafe creme before I even place my order. She’s really awesome. In the past, she has given me two coffees and an Apfelschorle (sparkling apple juice) on the house. She’s also given Mr. MC a free gipfeli, the Swiss word of a croissant. Thus, I try to tip her, which is not a common practice in Zurich.
Below is a picture of the KS’s interior. Our favorite place to sit is in the corner at the table next to the pipes. Though in the summer, KS has a popular outside section which is also nice, but the sun glare is not always laptop friendly.
