No trip to Switzerland is complete without having a taste of the traditional Graubundner Nut Cake, a type of sweet, caramelized nut-filled pastry in Switzerland.

It's sweet, nutty with an alluring buttery fragrance. Schneider also has an array of classic Swiss pastries on offer, if you have a sweet tooth, this place is worth a visit.
