I don't drink tea or coffee and when cold I am partial to a hot chocolate and was really pleased when Petit Royal opened up as Zermatt needed some more cafes. This is my go-to place when I am in need of a hot choloate....They have a selection to choose from and I've still only tried a few. Also have great cakes. I've yet to try the savoury offereings !More

I really wish we had tried this cafe earlier in our trip so we had more opportunities to come back. Everything we had was so delicious! This is the ONLY cafe in town that makes their own hot chocolate, and you can absolutely taste the...difference. Their other cafe drinks are good too. The pastries are really good, served warm, and not too sweet. Even something as simple as pumpkin soup tasted uniquely delicious. The cafe's upstairs area is super cozy with windows to peer down into the street and a faux fireplace. The ladies who work here are also super pleasant. Recommend coming as many times as possible, I certainly regret not doing so!More

The best coffee in Zermatt, with a fantastic selection of homemade cakes, tarts and pies ❤️ We have been there several times and are always amazed.

Every time I passed by this tiny café, tons of people were waiting outside - and for a good reason. I absolutely love the concept: healthy artisanal food, wonderful treats and fantastic coffee. The Matterhorn-shaped chocolate is super delicious too! This is a very special...place, more like it is desperately needed in Zermatt.More

Very tasty cakes (Apricot crumble & Budapest) and good coffee. Tried the Vivi Kola, the Swiss Cola which was quite good. The Romanian barista is very polite and helpful.

I just quickly stopped by to grab a coffee on my way to the railway station in Zermatt. The place is very tiny but cozy and nice. The service was very friendly and the coffee I ordered very good (as a Swiss, I have to...say that it is not easy to come by a good cup of coffee in touristy places in Switzerland). They also serve different cakes but since I wasn't hungry, I didn't buy any and therefore cannot comment on them other than they all looked very tasty.More

Our family spent the week in Zermatt hiking late last summer. We visited the Petit Royal Cafe every day and, as an amateur but enthusiastic lover of all things chocolate, can confirm that their hot chocolate is simply exquisite. The cafe itself it quaint and...comfortable. The service is kind and welcoming.More
