Äss-Bar – Fresh Food from Yesterday – New Eco Cake Shop In Zurich

When you next stroll around the Niederdorf area of Zurich you must check out the cake shop Ässbar – it’s one with a very special difference!  Äss-Bar is located in the heart of the old town and is doing its bit to cut down on food wastage – by selling yesterday’s cakes, bread, rolls, tarts, pastries, salads and sandwiches! You can even buy coffee to wash it all down with.

The idea is an excellent one – the cakes and pastries produced daily by Zurich’s bakeries are normally thrown away at the end of each day. Äss-Bar (which is a play on words as in Swiss German it means “edible”) had the idea of collecting all these left-over morsels and selling them in their shop the following day from 10.30am onwards.

Most items are in perfect condition the day after baking – and what’s even better is that Äss-Bar sells everything at about half the normal price which means that small cakes and tarts are around CHF 1.50 to CHF 2 each, bread rolls are about CHF 1, croissants 50 Rappen and large cakes cost between CHF 6 and CHF 12.

The shop is located at 6 Stüssihofstatt in the Niederdorf and NewInZurich caught up with two of the 4 partners the day before the official opening. The owners are not specialist patissiers or bakers but they realise that there is something going wrong when all this good food is wasted every day.  They are trying to create a business in a new niche and at the same time do their bit to reduce food wastage here in Switzerland.

Bakeries which supply the shop include Buchmann, Fleischli and Hotz and one of the best things about the shop is that every day the range is different! So why not pop by and give it a try?
