I'm travelling to St Moritz and will be stopping by a few villages on the Bernina line (Alp Grüm, etc.). Is payment using credit card, even for small items (e.g. coffee) readily acceptable, or do I need to prepare cash?

Hi Dakr1234

Lately I haven't had much issue using credit cards in Switzerland about anywhere but I would be ready with Swiss Francs for sure as there are places in smaller villages that are cash only.
