The Black Forest Cake of my dreams.

Baden-Baden was one of the excursions on our Sept. 2015 Rhine River cruise. After the tour, I asked our guide where a good place was to get a slice of Black Forest cake, to which she recommended the Café Koenig. It was simply the Black Forest cake I always dreamed of. I've had many cakes from... read more

Very friendly service, delicious cake beautifully packed (the wrapping alone was a work of art), and it was simply melt in the mouth chocolate heaven! Definitely one for those with a sweet tooth.

It was a real gift to me to find this patisserie!!! I have never tried so many delicious cakes in one place. I visited it four times during my short holiday and wasn't disappointed! Every cake I tried was perfect!

Voted one of Germany's best cafes in 2014, this café offers delightful cakes and candies and offers a small menu along with an assortment of teas and coffees. An elegant place to enjoy a light meal or a late afternoon snack, especially if you like to indulge in the German tradition of "kaffee and kuchen."

We spent the last weekend with friends at a spa hotel in Baden Baden. On Saturday we decided to go to the city for breakfast. The cakes at Cafe König dragged our attention so we went in. We had to move twice because the table we chose was apparently reserved, although there was no sign on it. The cafe place... More

Cafe König is a 250 year old quaint fairy-tail pastry and chocolate shop. It's charming and delicious. You can purchase delightful treats to go or you can sit in the courtyard or inside the cafe. On a gorgeous fall day, we sat indoors. The courtyard was packed with people of all ages. We had a late lunch of salmon, sauerkraut,... More

We went here twice in 3 days. The staff, the atmosphere, and the confections were wonderful. They have a large selection, so it was hard to choose. We had to sample real black forest cake while in the black forest. It was so light with layers of cream, cake, and liquour soaked cake with cheeries. The day before we had... More
