Café de la Collégiale


Forty paces down the cobblestone road from Neuchâtel's castle, is Café de la Collégiale. Besides the daily lunch the café offers sandwiches, omelets, salads, and beverages of coffees, tea, soft drinks, wine, beer and aperitifs.

Café de la Collégiale is housed in an ancient building - all the buildings in this area are ancient - but the interior is modern. Much may be said about ripping out the interior of a building hundreds of years old and modernizing it. There should be a law against it. However, the modernizing of this interior was at least tastefully done, and is pleasing to the eye. If you take a window seat you will also have a view red-tiled roof tops of Neuchâtel and the clock tower, one of Neuchâtel's last remaining defensive towers.
