Great meal and worth a short walk away from the main tourist strip

The centre of Potsdam is very touristy and cute with a lot of restaurants behind the Brandenburg Gate (yes, they have one here too) and down the long, rifle barrel-straight main street - Brandenburgerstrasse - to the Church of Saints Peter and Paul. There's also a tourist information centre where I... read more

During a summer trip we stopped here for a coffee and some hot chocolate. The hot chocolate was a pure chocolate drink and extremely rich. A very nice drink indeed. The location was also very nice being at the centre of the Dutch Quarter

I was in Potsdam with my wife for a couple of hours and I figured I'd treat her to a nice dessert. We headed to this place because I had heard good reviews of the place. We had a slice of cake and a chocolate drink. Both were to die for, especially the famous chocolate drink. The drink is made... More

They have so many different cakes and all of them looking just delicious that it's really hard to make a decision. The two cakes that we had were very good and tea was quiet good too. I strongly recommend to all to pass by this very special place.

This "House of Chocolate" is a mixture between a coffee place, a restaurant and a bakery. We came here to try their head liner, the traditional chocolate. This cannot be compared with ordinary chocolate milk as it contains 50grams of rich liquid chocolate, which runs for 4,50 euro. For an extra 1,40 euro you can add a shot of rum,... More

This is a delightful Restaurant with delicious gateaux. The staff were very helpful and we drank various coffees and apfel saft. Each person had something different to eat and the variety was great. It was raining so we ate inside but there was a lovely area where we could have sat if it had been fine.

We arrived just in time for breakfast. In the Dutch Quarter worth the walk. Lovely breakfast. I had the fitness breakfast my husband had a German breakfast.

Came there thanks TripAdvisor recommendation. Had a nice hot chocolate and a delicious cake. The only problem was that the service wasn't so good and the waitress didn't pay attention to us at all.

I have been to this restaurant about 5 times over the past 10 years in the Dutch quarter. It never fails to disappoint. Usually go in for the hot chocolate which is thick and pure luxury. This time I had a meal of ravioli with walnuts and grilled pears salad absolutely divine. Plentiful as well. Can't wait for my return... More

A leisurely walk up to the picturesque Dutch quarter, this cafe is gorgeous. The quaint atmosphere, white linen, old world style tea house is inviting. The house specialty of hot chocolate is decadent, the coffee good and the small brunch menu perfectly adequate. Lives up to its reputation
