Nice place between old building. The daily menu is great, had pork meat and mashed potatoes, really enjoyed it.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere. Sometimes a little noisy depending on how many toddlers and babies are present. Excellent, freshly prepared dishes with vegetarian and vegan choices all across the board from breakfast, through lunch to cake and coffee. A little alternative, a little difficult to find but well worth a visit.

Good lunch selection and you can order half portions which is great. I would give it four stars if the staff were a little friendlier. Some are friendly but others seem so apathetic that it ruins everything else. With better service this would be a fantastic place to have breakfast, lunch or coffee and cake.

I was here by chance in 2012 and have tried to find the place again ever since, as it was soooo nice! And after four years we found it by chance again. The entry is kind of hidden (see photo below) and they have a very small but so lush little outside area - nicely tucked away. We were here... More

We had a delicious breakfast in a cozy atmosphere. Totally recommended! It is located in a hidden place, you would never guess that there is a cafe out there! Good service.

I had a late lunch at Cafe Palaver and only ordered a salad and a slice of apple cake. Food is OK - not unforgettable - while location is great, as there are a large inside room and a peaceful outer court; Cafe Palaver does not face any street, it's situated in an a nice cosy inner court. On the... More

We visited Café Palaver twice during our stay in Karlsruhe. It's fantastic! A little green oasis away from the hustle and bustle, with a menu that changes daily and offers vegan and vegetarian food. On a sunny afternoon, we really enjoyed sitting outside in the courtyard surrounded by plants, but you can retreat to the ample indoor seating if you... More

This hidden place is full of people coming to enjoy their brunch at Cafe Palaver, they have outdoor seats and its very cozy. They have many choices for brunch and other meals. All the food are very natural and organic. You will accidentally order too much like us :P

This place was recommended to us by locals, as was its all-day breakfast. They have a lot of vegetarian options and we got an all day vegetarian breakfast (power) for 3, which fed 5 of us. It was a huge plate of raw, cooked, sweet and savoury foods - breads, croissants, salad, cheeses, fruit, yoghurt, boiled eggs... Very nice and... More
