Stopped here after visiting St Thomas. The girls behind the counter acted annoyed I went up there to order, told me to sit down and they would be with me. Ok, I guess I didn't know! Then I kindly went in and asked them to show me where we were on a local map. They looked at each other and... More

In the middle of the street hiding the best coffee and the best cakes in leipzig. If you are here, you don't want to miss it. Go there.

Called in for a tea and cake. I thought around 15 euros for an average earl grey and very average cake for two of us was a little over the top. The location is good but we will not be returning. Owners response will be interesting.

We were late with breakfast this Tuesday, but after visiting the Thomaskirche we needed this 'pampering' badly. Beautiful shop, classical german delicacies, chique pies not to neglect.

Very nice place close to Saint Thomas church, the cakes are excellent and the terrace is quite well situated, they do excellent cakes everyday... The only problem is that is always quite crowded, is difficult to find a place... Service was fast but not so nice with us, although correct...

This is almost a great cafe. The al fresco seating next to the Thomaskirche is lovely (much nicer than inside the cafe in fact). The tea is excellent. The cakes are among the best in town (certainly vastly better than at Riquet). Two big things are letting Kandler down, however. The first is long-life (lange haltbar) milk. I know it's... More

I bought the speciality cakes? from here, they tasted very nice, and 2 euros is not a bad price. Close proximity to the market and arcona living Bach apartments. The other things inside also looked very nice, but didn`t buy as it was in the evening, and only had a limited selection.

Despite the pretentious composers names, the teas are really good, with proper leaves in teapots. Good selection of cakes and a spot just by the Bach places.

Remember this place for a choice of cakes with our coffee or tea. Kandler's "Leipziger Laerchen" are worth trying, crisp and tasty.

We were in a little bit of a hurry (40m) to get a sandwich/salad/pasta and a beer en route to the Saturday motette. There was very little English spoken and no English menu (not necessarily bad) but we had a tasty lunch in the front window of a wonderful cafe where we wish we could have stayed longer! The desserts/pastries... More
