Marché® Restaurant – the original in front-cooking

Here, cooking is a passion and guests can watch it live. As is customary at a traditional marketplace, you select your food from a colorful variety at various booths. The offerings include fresh, hand-squeezed juices, crisp salads, carefully prepared seasonal dishes, and homemade pastries. Marché® uses only organic/fair trade coffee for its coffee specialties. The restaurants are rooted in their respective regions, which is reflected in their individual design. They also source typical local and seasonal products from local suppliers. This high standard of freshness meets the requirements of today’s customers with regard to conscious nutrition. Hospitality is the top priority. Once the guests have initially served themselves, additional drinks and food are brought to their tables. Of course, Marché® takes care of clearing the tables for its guests.

Families are welcome at Marché®. Thanks to highchairs on wheels, parents can easily stroll through the market stalls with their children and at the same time fill their trays with delicious foods. Children select their own orders from the varied offerings on the Picky Kids Menu. Inviting playground and kids’ corners await our little guests. The Baby Service Station is equipped with the essentials and enables parents to continue to have a pleasant journey.

The Marché® Natural Bakeries complement the Marché® Restaurants perfectly. Their bakers bake according to the rules and customs established by the traditional baker’s trade. In other words: flour, salt, yeat, water, and selected ingredients for refining are all Marché® needs. Hearty breads and other treats leave the oven on a daily basis. All processes from kneading the dough to fermentation and finally to the actual baking take place in a completely transparent manner before the eyes of our guests.

Marché® Bistro – the compact version of Marché® Restaurants

Marché® Bistro offers its high standard of consistently fresh, fast food for travelers on the go, but in a smaller space. The product range includes typical Marché® offers such as freshly squeezed juices, and organic/fair trade coffee as well as delicious Marché® sandwiches, crisp salads, and homemade pastries. Guest may enjoy the food either on site in comfortable seating areas or on the road as conveniently packaged takeaway.

Marché® Express – freshness to go

In order to implement the freshness philosophy on a small scale, we have developed Marché® Express, a takeaway concept that incorporates the most popular Marché® to-go products: sandwiches and focaccia prepared in front of our customers, freshly squeezed juices, homemade lemonades and iced teas, as well as various salads and sweet pastries. Offers are seasonal and created from in-house recipes.

Cindy’s Diner – Welcome to the World of the Freshest Burger

Cindy’s Diner serves fresh, high-quality gourmet burger and handmade Cindy’s Fries. The Swiss beef is transferred directly from the meat grinder onto the grill and the crispy spelt bun is sweetened with honey instead of sugar. We use only Swiss potatoes for Cindy’s Fries, which we cut fresh on a daily basis. American-style breakfast, fresh sandwiches, crisp salads, and delicious sweets round out the menu at Cindy’s Diner,  which brings guests a varied restaurant experience in the style of the timeless and trendy 50s. The stylish chrome facade, the seating areas modeled on original 1950s booths, and the typical American Diner decoration invite you on a journey into the legendary years of Cadillacs and petticoats. In the shop guests will also find original American products and various retro-style accessories.

Cindy’s Burger Trailer – the Freshest Burger on the Road

Cindy’s Burger Trailer is the portable brother of the famous Cindy’s Diner retro-style highway restaurant, but smaller – and on wheels. The trailer travels to destinations not necessarily along the highway. Ideal for various locations and events, Cindy’s Burger Trailer offers a legendary burger experience in timeless 50s retro style. Guests can enjoy gourmet beef, chicken, and veggie burgers, our famous Cindy’s Fries, as well as salads and desserts. Refreshing beverages include homemade lemonades and iced teas, plus original drinks from the U.S. All meat and poultry for our burgers made fresh daily are sourced exclusively from Switzerland.

Zopf & Zöpfli – braided by hand and freshly baked

Zopf & Zöpfli is a takeaway concept of Marché Restaurants Switzerland AG in collaboration with Betty Bossi.  As its name suggests, Zopf & Zöpfli refers to a traditional Swiss favorite, the “Zopf” (braid). Daily offerings include various sizes of freshly baked braided loaves served plain or with filling, hot or cold, and with ingredients to satisfy meat-lovers, vegetarians and vegans alike. The menu is made complete with salads, muesli and beverages. All loaves are braided by hand, baked around the clock, and freshly filled on site. Offerings are adjusted for the time of day. For example, you can enjoy a chocolate roll for breakfast, a rustico roll with grilled vegetables for lunch, and a slice of hot beef and pork loaf in a warm braided butter roll for dinner.

Clean Toilets – a matter of cleanliness, even en route

The Clean Toilets concept ensures clean, well-maintained sanitary facilities around the clock. Parents will appreciate the well-equipped changing tables in the women’s as well as men’s restrooms. Guests with disabilities will find wheelchair accessible toilet facilities at all locations.
