Yoummi - our catering option

Balanced, sustainable, varied and attractively priced: these are the cornerstones of our dining concept.

Our cosy restaurants are a meeting point to get to know other travellers and offer you fine foods every day. Swiss and international dishes are awaiting you with fresh and regional ingredients.

Seasonal and sustainable

When preparing meals, attention is paid to regional and Swiss as well as «fair trade» products, with seasonal availability always being taken into account for vegetables and fruits – exotic fruits will be avoided as far as possible. The amount of vegetables is increased in various dishes to keep the carbon footprint as small as possible.

Vegetarian, vegan or meat after all?

Our menus are always based on a vegetarian dish. Every day the menu offers a vegetarian dish, which is also offered in a vegan version. In addition, there is usually a menu with Swiss meat. All our dishes are always offered as gluten- or lactose-free options. Our menus consume on average 40% less CO2 than a standard menu.

Pimp your meal

At the topping stations, you can garnish the individual courses with nuts, raisins, chillies, tortilla chips, various sauces, lime wedges, herbs and other ingredients. The toppings vary depending on the dish.

Good value and high quality

With a price of CHF 19.50 for a 3-course meal and children’s prices of CHF 8.50 (2-5 years) and CHF 14.50 (6-12 years), our lunches and dinners feature extremely attractive prices. Our menus include a salad and/or soup, the freshly prepared main course as well as a dessert. Free second helpings of vegetables and side dishes included.
