Atmosphere quite nice, old-school German coffee house. Quality of the two cakes we tried, Blackforest and a Genevan Nut Cake, not so impressed. This might be a matter of taste, but these layered cakes were more cream than anything else and struck me as a bit vulgar. The tea I ordered was too weak (hard to screw up tea, normally)...and...

people are waiting on a free table, so rather hectic but quality and service remain on a fair level. the atmosphere is old fashion mondaine.

After a long walk in the Lichtentaler Allee we came back and were so happy to get very good soups for lunch and fantastic cakes and coffee . In the middle of a lot of elderly people you seem to be back in the 60 s and 70 s when Baden Baden was very exclusive place

I enjoyed my lemon meringue pie but the tea was very over priced compared to what I am used to paying in the UK for afternoon tea. It is a very nice setting though and the service was very good.

Having trawled many cafes in Germany searching for one that did not dish up the usual Apfelstreusel and cheesecake -always high in volume but low in taste and quality, this place and its cakes do not disappoint. Lives up to what you would hope for from a picturesque and classy cafe. Atmosphere is friendly and although always well frequented never... More

WOW what a place! I didn't know what to try as it looks like perfect desserts for a magazine. We ended up with a little assortment of cookies. Melt in your mouth cookies. They have chocolates, gingerbread houses, coffee and tea. Dine out on the terrace or take away for a walk in the park. What a beautiful place with... More

Seems like this is where all the local residents of town head for a tea/coffee/cake. Cakes look very pretty, but were nothing special in taste. Coffee was not that good . I do think it is nice to sit outside and just watch the town go by. Service was average, they were very busy.

Great cakes etc. Also does light lunches. Not cheap but certainly worth a visit to watch the real money in Baden Baden come out to chat to their friends

This is a great place to snack. Go light on lunch and then stop here mid afternoon or go mid morning for breakfast. They have one of the best assortments of sweet tooth satisfiers I've ever seen. If you can't find something here to savor, you won't be satisfied anywhere. There is an unbelievably tempting array of pastries, cakes, rolls,... More

We really wanted the Black Forest cake to go (along w/some other sweets), but I was informed that we had to eat the cake inside. It was a long wait to get drinks, but the place was packed. The non-English speaking waiters will not look at you or even disrespect you w/a snooty look (as can be expected). The English-Speaking... More
