About us

You only have one mother. And she is unique – just like Dini Mueter (your mother).  A café, bar and restaurant all rolled into one, we are a haven of peace at the end of Zurich’s loud and colourful Langstrasse. With fresh coffee, tasty cakes, wholesome food and service with a smile.

We are here when you want to read the morning newspaper in peace, or when hunger suddenly strikes at lunchtime. When you want an after-work drink with friends, or the chance to surprise your new lover with brunch – whatever the occasion, Dini Mueter is your second home. Always, seven days a week, from early till late.

We look forward to welcoming you.


Whoever you ask, the answer’s always the same: the best food is not what you get from a celebrity chef, but from your mother. Dini Mueter cooks just the way you like it: fresh, honest and home-made.

Only carefully selected ingredients land in our pans – and seasonal dishes on our tables. All without flavour enhancers, ready mixes or colour enhancers, and of course organic wherever possible.

MORNINGS – FROM 09.00 am

Give yourself a good start to the day, with a croissant, a wholesome breakfast or a lazy weekend brunch. And no stress: Dini Mueter serves breakfast at the weekend and on public holidays until 4.00 pm and during the week until 11.00 am. 

LUNCH – 11.30 am –2.00 pm

From Monday to Friday, we serve a range of dishes between 11.30 am and 2.00 pm, with a focus on variety and selection. You will find our latest menu creations on the blackboard, on the menu, or here:

Dini Mueter hosts cultural events on an ad hoc basis to which everyone is invited. Of course you can also celebrate your birthday or promotion here. Just ask! Dini Mueter knows how to throw a good party – with a menu to match.


With a choice of a bar counter, a small lounge corner, relaxing tables or one long communal table, guests can drink, eat, chat, read, write or just hang out - at any time of the day. And in the summer, we are open to the street. Dini Mueter is the ideal place to idle away the hours. Click through our gallery and see for yourself.
