Well worth a visit to experience traditional service and menu. A little above average prices but not too expensive.

Visited this café for the at least 25 th time and it has a very nice atmosphere and very good cakes. The service has anyhow turned from being very nice and kind to terrible. We experienced this already one year ago but decided to give them another go this summer. The waiter was arrogant and nonchalant to an extend that... More

We had Coffee and Cake here one afternoon. The food was good. The Service could have been better. One Server seemed more interested in seeing old friends than waiting on tables.

Very cosy place where you can eat very lovely German cakes! It's about € 3,60 for one slice! But oooh so goooood!! There's also a little shop where you can buy a whole cake or some other sweets.

Dropped in for a bowl of soup each.Nice but no outstanding. Service reasonable. Maybe a bit pricey. Nicely situated in the main shopping area

Really good location in a commercial area with many shops, nice outdoor (and indoor) seating area, but... expensive prices and as far as I can tell from my experience... terrible coffee making. Poor.

This was an amazing Cafe which produced high quality food and drink spoilt by truly awful service. We were on a day trip from Hamburg and we would have come back for lunch but we were put off by the service. Sadly only putting the effort in and being polite when the customer is paying is not the solution !

Cafe Knigge is a great place for a rest from all the great shopping in Bremen. The variety of cake that they have is amazing and you get a decent sized portion. I would also suggest the petit fours and the macaroons which are usually tucked away near the door. We discovered them a week ago and have been hooked... More

Great restaurant for cake and coffee. Cakes change daily, there's no set menu. Some cakes are a bit boozy, I like them :D
