Every time I am in Passau I try to visit this place. Wonderful desserts, hot chocolate and attentive staff make this place a must visit for me.

right next to the cathedral and perfect for an afternoon coffee and something sweet [ I had 3 different desserts and all were fabulous] There are many places to sit: 2 outside areas, and 4 rooms inside.I could not resist sitting in the room with the disco ball, black velvet wall paper and pick fabric chairs! Quite something.

Bavarian pastries at their best-- and really good coffee (and tea), too! The service was very attentive. Located right next to St. Stephan's Cathedral at the Dom plaza. Also have free restrooms.

You can just have hot / cold drinks here, or cakes or a light meal, but it's the opulent decor that makes this a worthwhile stop before or after a visit to the Cathedral. It's very close by, hidden away behind an archway in the corner of Domplatz. Don't be put off by the few tables in the shade at... More

If you are looking for a relaxing break from a busy day sightseeing in Passau make sure to stop by at this cafe'. They have a large selection of artisan cakes and ice creams. Everything is home made and the whipped cream is freshly made and not from a bottle in the fridge. They also serve a small selection of... More

Just tacked away under an arch next to the Cathedral you will find Cafe Stephen. We popped in for a Sunday morning coffee and a nibble and were extremely impressed with the wonderful cakes and treats. It is clearly a locals favorite and the decor and furniture give you a feeling of elegance and class. It got a little busy... More

We had a very good lite lunch plus really good sweets. Four of us visited and had lunch on September 19. The sweets are really really good. We each had a different selection and sampled the others. Very fresh and reasonable priced. Also an excellent white wine. Highly recommended and we will return
