We lucked out and stumbled upon this café when looking for a place to eat breakfast. Everything was very tasty, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We'll definitely come back!

Remembered this from my visit in the spring so took my colleague. Good simple menu with decent portion sizes and at very reasonable prices. The staff speak English and there are English menus available as well.

Where are you find good coffee or sweets here? Poor coffee (it's like a water!!!!), poor sweets (there were dry disgusting Zähertorte, absolutely poor White cheese!!!). Is there "homemade"?????? Really?????? No!!! Any street-type Der Mann will be much more better.More

We visited for a coffee on our way back to the apartment after a long day of walking. The typical cafe house interior with plush seats and chandeliers was pretty and cozy. It is a place where I can see myself sitting over coffee and...More

Dear family, thank you for your input. I know not everyone is happy about the making of our apple strudel, but most of the people (90%) like this kind of making it. Nuts are not in ingredients of an original strudel. We produce every day...More
