The authentic Solothurn Torte (gateau) has been prepared for 94 years according to the original recipe of the inventor, Albert Studer. Luscious melt-in-the-mouth hazelnut meringue with a seductively light cream filling, prepared fresh every day with choice ingredients: it's no wonder that this combination has become known as one of Switzerland's most delicious confections over the last nine decades. As a souvenir gift or for an afternoon snack during a shopping tour, Solothurn Torte is among the quintessential hallmarks of Switzerland's loveliest baroque city.

What could be better than to kick back on the shady terrace of the Suteria in the heart of the Old Town and let yourself be thoroughly spoiled? Particularly when I treat myself to a slice of Solothurn Torte – a delectable mix of light sponge, hazelnut meringue and smooth, creamy filling.
