The staff was very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We saw the lunch special and asked if it was gluten free - and it was! The lunch special included salad, entree, and coffee at a very good price and was delicious. They brought warm home-made gluten-free buns - a delicious surprise! A very pleasant experience. I highly recommend this place on the beautiful boardwalk of Ascona. It was a sunny warm November day and not at all crowded - we sat outside!
