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

As part of walking tour, we watched a demo on how gingerbread cookies are made. I definitely like the ones made out of sugar instead of honey or marzipan. We brought home 6 bags for families and cocoa mix. The other cookies and cakes were also delectable.

Meeting several generations of gingerbread makers was one of the highlights of the tour of Passau. It was great to see such pride in their work and see how traditions are handed down from generation to generation. They gave us several types of gingerbread to try and told us the history of this winter tradition.

We stopped by Cafe Simon to see a demonstration of how Lebkuchen (Gingerbread) was made, really interesting with ample samples available to try, also some excellent Glühwein to keep out the cold! The Cafe and attached shop looked so nice we decided to come back later for a coffee and pastry, what a good decision that was! When we returned... More
