Cafe
“Because of its good drinks and as well for the people (young people don't go there). It is a nice bar which we defenately recommend. If you prefer a nice cafe there is another entrance which leads you to the 1st floor of cafe Huguenin which is as well a very nice address in Basel.”

“This is a nice bar with food and good coffee. You can sit in or outside and enjoy the local neighbourhood. Some have said that the owner is quite rude and unfriendly. So maybe try Jele first. ”
