André's Confiserie Suisse

More Bistro-ish.  Less Old-ish.

It’s about the new atmosphere at André's Confiserie Suisse after their renovation. They wanted to “change everything without changing anything.” The Bolliers had already done a renovation back in 2014 of the front retail space and this summer they went to work on the back. The goal was to have an updated look but still retain the old world warmth of the former chalet. I think they definitely succeeded – new light wood floors, higher ceiling, no visual or closed off obstacles disguised as tall-backed booths and serving areas. 

I checked out the place one late morning and it was clear it is a more inviting space – still seems friendly and you can hear someone else talk to you. Their Main Street Tearoom is really from the middle back, but you can sit up front, too. They’re open from 7 a.m. with lunch beginning four hours later. There are always two delicious choices which change daily plus their famous quiches. I buy their whole quiches when I want to impress house guests, by the way. 

I liked the last renovation of the front, too, because now you can go and hang out until 9 p.m. with a decent glass of wine. Or two. It’s just very relaxing. You do this upfront at what they call their Main Street Café and you can eat lunch, dinner, or have happy hour there. From 7 – 9 p.m., you can get 25% off a pretty extensive list of items. Their bar selection is big enough, and they have 24 wines by the glass, Rieger liquors (try the Rieger Caffé Amaro for something different and a great finish to the evening), and Boulevard beers. 

Speaking of finishing, I’m done here – but going back. I like contemporary old-world Swiss.

My wife has been going to Andre’s for 40+ years- her parents for 50+ (me for 25). With the new outside patio area, we can now bring our two well behaved Japanese Chins each Saturday morning for coffee and a few evenings for dinner. The family works hard to retain good staff for years and we love going as they know who we are and they are part of our “family”. We had my in laws 50th wedding reception there! Just recently we had the pleasure of listening to the Alphorn being played while we enjoyed the outside patio. Fun!
