Swiss grocery markets with very good food halls

Grocery chains such as Migros, Coop and many Manor dept stores have vg
Self serve Cafeteria-like restaurants. Reasonably priced, fresh, wide selection, and tasty.
A great alternate to pricey swiss bistros or restaurants.

We agree! We traveled in June of this year with a 6 year old picky eater. This is where the majority of our meals were bought. We did eat in the beautiful cafeteria in Zurich's Manor Department Store (delicious with such a wide variety of food). In Lucern we ate at "tidbits" (vegan restaurant in train station). Even though we aren't vegan, they had great variety of food that was tasty.

Great tip for people who missed this advice in RS's book. We, too, ate most of our meals at the store cafeterias throughout our travels through Switzerland. A great alternative to the pricey restaurants in Switzerland. We did, though, splurge on fondue for two meals.

The migros and coops are THE way to go for both cafeteria food and grocery stores. Don't forget to buy some bottles of wine, too. Try the Swiss wines - they're very good and you'll probably not find them anywhere outside of Switzerland as the Swiss do not export their wine.
