My wife and I always stop by the Koenig for an excellent coffee and a piece of their scrumptious Black Forest Cake. You can never go wrong this cafe for pastries and cakes. The tables are situated in a cozy little court yard with a rather large tree in the centre. Great place to relax and watch the crowds passing... More

Excellent . Good coffee and mouth watering cakes served in a small garden- like area under the trees . Probably hasn't changed much since Baden Baden's heyday .

This is the ultimate place to relish a Black forest, well in the Black forest region. One is certainly spoilt for choice here. The cream filings inside the freshly baked pastries are heavenly and leave you asking for more. No pastry is same as the other so choosing a favourite is difficult. You may be disappointed if you visit them... More

My husband and I ate breakfast at this beautiful little cafe every day that we were in Baden Baden. The pastry shop is shockingly beautiful (and delicious), but we liked the restaurant itself with its many variations on a continental breakfast and its excellent service best of all. They have everything from simple coffee and croissant combos to elaborate champagne... More

The Germans can bake, there's no count about that. Layered cream cakes that they call Torte, baking tray slices that they call Blechkuchen, all spiced up with seasonal fruits of rhubarb, raspberries and the delightful Black Forest cake. Is coffee house offers everything you can every imagine. Seating outside is cramped and limited. Inside the coffee house there are pasties... More

Quite a quaint venue but service was slow and a little off-hand. You queue for your cake order (even though beverages and other food are ordered from the menu) and on a busy day, this can be painfully slow. It is understandable that you want to see which if the many cakes on display you might fancy but I've been... More

When I went to Baden Baden this bakery was one of the best I've seen and tasted in all of Europe. The women working there are amazingly nice, helpful, and knowledgeable in helping to pick out sweets if one has a hard time to choose something. Also this place has a big room inside which looks grand and spectacular, its... More

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...

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
