Confiserie Sprüngli

August 16, 2014



The lovely Kristina Bazan recommended Swiss chocolates from Sprüngli and oh boy was she right! They have the most scumptious sweets. The Confiserie Sprüngli is a Swiss luxury confectionery manufacturer founded in 1836 and internationally known for its signature macarons called "Luxemburgerli".

The Sprüngli café on Paradeplatz is a traditional meeting-place of the elderly ladies of Zürich's upper class. Local folklore has it that young men who attend the café alone may signal their availability to these well-to-do women by turning over their coffee spoons in their cups. But according to the company's director, this is a persistent myth reflecting Zurich's more puritanical past, when the Sprüngli café was one of the few places where upper-class women could talk to strangers without risking their reputation.




 I hope you are all enjoying the weekend. I'm off to the beach!
