Great coffee, drinks and pastries. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice mixed atmosphere. The decor does not fully align with the German coffee house claim, having traveled extensively in Germany, nor have I ever found any staff who speaks German there. Still very enjoyable.

German style coffee house. Great stop for morning coffee & pastry. Variety of egg sandwiches. Laid back vibe & locals hangout. Street parking decent most mornings. The staff is as friendly as you treat them.

It's "pumpkin" season and we love how they prepare the pumpkin cold brew. Flavorful and not sweet. We drove back twice during to get more! Have tried the daily soup, but not pastry.

Went to Cafe Vonsolln to try their specialty— the “bee sting” cake. Beautifully crafted but average in taste. I’m still wondering what the big deal is. Perhaps add a layer of chocolate? Friendly service though.

We stopped in for coffee while walking around downtown. I can't vouch for the pastry but the coffee was pretty disappointing, weak and flavorless.

We make a beeline to Cafe Vonsolln for the light cake made with honey topped with cream and toasted almond slivers called Bienenstich (bee sting). Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! Beeline / bee sting. Get it? 😂
