The Laughing Teapot
very fond of the scones at this lovely tea place in old town. Less than 10 CHF with a nice pot of tea. Can't be beaten.

A lovely and colorful place to visit with friends to taste the amazing homemade fruit cake, the Lorraine quiche and the apple crumble! The staffs are gracious and the good part is you can also buy a jam pot or a bottle of olive oil to take back home.
After a perfect afternoon of pampering we headed to the Laughing Teapot for an afternoon break for something sweet. It seems a bit shabby and run down but the whole concept is great. Not sure I would make it a regular place but if there was no other choice and I was in the area of the old town I would go again because even though the staff lack warmth the nibblies are quite good. bisou bisou
Not what I expected, the tea was lukewarm and when I asked for 'boiling water' the waiter was less then impressed with my request. We were maybe 4 people in the whole place and it took him 30 min to bring my water. With the name I thought 'good ol english service with a smile'... not at this place, cold and slow is more like it.
The place is lovely, the service is frosty.
This is a great little place but if only they served real cream with their scones! If the owner is reading this PLEASE PLEASE get rid of the whipped bottled cream its really horrible. The rest however is great - Bravo !!
Charming coffee shop. Friendly service. Lovely atmosphere.
