The Classic Angus
Our bestselling “Classic Angus” is made of 100% Angus beef from cows that spend the whole summer on grass meadows high above Lake Lucerne. Free-range farming, healthy feed and the sensitive preparation in the Holzen family business result in an Angus hamburger of exceptional aroma and unrivalled quality. Its coarse texture and tender, juicy bite put it in a class of its own.
All our hamburgers are developed exclusively for the Helvti Diner and are made from 100% beef. And they’re all completely free of additives such as binding agents, flavour enhancers or spices.
The Diner Dog
Behold our creation: a rolled-up sausage grilled with a choice of toppings – mustard and ketchup (“The Classic”) or roasted onions and creamed cheddar (“The American”) between two buns cooked to our own recipe.
The sausages are made exclusively for us and come in a choice of beef or pork. We think the two different compositions offer the most intensive and harmonious taste combinations – we’ve reinvented the hot dog!
We are particularly proud of our own creations and interpretations of renowned classics. That means famous Pastrami with smoked beef and honey mustard, or the Diner Roll with roasted sausages and coleslaw or even the Chicken Roll, which combines a tender chicken breast with guacamole, salad, red onions and our smoked BBQ sauce.
Oh, and as well as our vegetarian roll which comes with avocado, blueberries and spicy sour cream.
Healthy doesn’t have to mean humdrum. Not when you have our classic “Caesar Salad”, served with tender whole chicken breast on a creamy Caesar sauce and fresh lettuce, or the “Green Chicken” also with a whole chicken breast, avocado and seasonal salad or the "Green & Angus" with juicy Angus meat balls.
Naturally you can also order the salads as naked so with no meat or on the side to lend a fresh kick to any meal.
Our Cheese Cake
You may have noticed a cheese cake renaissance going on, but we’re not being mucking about when we say that our home-made, tender, creamy Helvti Diner cheese cake is among the finest this city has to offer. Topped with fresh berries and coulis, this is one to gladden the heart of dessert devotees everywhere.
Our warm raspberry muffins with double cream are a real flavour burst to round out any meal with a flourish.
Our milkshakes are made with three scoops of fresh ice creams and milk, mixed for you on the spot. Absolutely not, in other words, a ready-made product we just pour out. And the taste is that much more intense, and fresh, with a delightfully creamy end note. Crazy and dirty are our unique Nasty Shakes.
"A Milkshake a day makes you laugh and keeps sorrows away!"
