German term or phrase: Haubenlokal
In talking about Swiss cuisine: "Die Restaurants-und zwar nicht nur einzelne Haubenlokale, sondern jedes Beisl, in das man hineinstolpert-befinden sich durchwegs auf einem Niveau, wie man es sonst nur von romanischen Ländern gewohnt ist." How does the "Hauben" part work here?

Explanation:
Maybe it is an ultra-traditional, higher-class, Swiss/Austrian restaurant where the servers still wear the little nurse-like cap. This is only a guess. There are some of us who live in Austria/Switzerland; maybe you can wait till one of them answers.
