The sprawling (85 cover) round-the-clock coffee shop at Swissotel Kolkata looks best during the day with sunlight pouring in through the huge glass facade. On the other side is the café's alfresco dining area (plus smoking zone). The interiors are chic but snug; in fact, it is the laid-back atmosphere that makes Café Swiss especially endearing. The menu, a mix of European, Indian and Asian, is studded with classic Swiss delights such as apple strudel, pork schnitzel, potato rosti and bratwurst served with sauerkraut, mash and gravy. The desserts at Café Swiss stand out. The Swiss cheese cake served with a tart raspberry sorbet is to die for.
