We got a gingerbread demonstration from Mr. Simon and his son we got to taste the evolution of their recipes. It was interesting as they moved from homey as the sweetener to molasses to sugar. They make much more than gingerbread. Everything was great. Nice staff and family.

I had the opportunity to visit Cafe Simon on Dec. 3 as part of a Viking River Cruise. We were given a special presentation by the 3rd and 4th generation of the Simon family showing the three types of ginger bread (Lebkuchen). The original recipe using only honey was my favorite. If you are on a diet don't go thru... More

We had a gingerbread making talk from the charming owner Her Simon (arranged by Viking Cruises), which was super. The cafe shop serves yummy pasteries etc.

This is a great little cafe. Get here right after the church concert because it will fill up fast. You will have to fight the locals for seats as well. The food is wonderful and the service was quick and attentive. The sweets are something every town in America should have available.

This cafe serves both light food and coffee/cake. Its location makes it nice for tourists, but the quality of the food is high and well worth a stop. We had soup and sandwiches. My Griessknoedel soup was well-made and very tasty. We chatted with our neighbors, whose cake and coffee were also excellent. Prices I found were a touch high,... More

We were in port for just a few hours whilst on a river cruise and were recommended this cafe for chocolates. It was slightly raining and we decided to get a treat and a table for shelter. We ended up having the best coffee and strudel of the trip. The chocolates were luscious...rich...decadent. Everything you want in chocolate. I believe... More

We just happened upon this lovely cafe as we were walking around Passau. We are on a long cycling trip across Europe and were wanting a small lunch. The pastries are AMAZING. You will never have such lovely tortes,cakes and coffees. I had the potato pancake with tomato sauce and mozzarella and basil with a small salad. My husband had... More

Stopped here for coffee and a cookie while on a mission to buy gingerbread cookies to take back to the US. Everyone told me Cafe Simon was the place to go for gingerbread. They gave me a sample when I walked in and I immediately knew everyone was right. Amazing cookies and a nice little cafe with friendly wait staff,... More
