Not spectacular coffee, but warm, friendly, where locals hang out...and had a fabulous apple cake there. Went at 11:00 to meet friends, left at noon and there was a huge line waiting outside. Nice local spot, would return,

Despite being a Starbucks lover, i checked this place on TripAdvisor, and liked the reviews. It is really nice old fashion coffee shop. With the possibility to buy biscuits (short bread, amaretti, chocolate,...) and packs of coffee from around the world. We went there for a nice coffee and breakfast, place was busy, and service good. Price average. I would... More

It's no good to compare each coffee place to Starbucks, but Kaffee Wackers has become the first choice for a good cup of coffee in Frankfurt and all other chains ceased to exist. That good!

Verry poor service, unfriendly waitresses and way overpriced. They seem to aim at the tourists to ripp them off.

Over-rated coffee, yet again in Europe. The coffee seemed ok but of course they use UHT (Long-life) milk which just makes it horrible. The woman serving me was very efficient but bored and disinterested.

My favorite caffee bar in Frankfurt. When I go to Frankfurt I usually stop here. The coffee and the cakes very good. Everybody go there once and check it.

Poor service and customer concern. Looking forward to a nice Mother's Day breakfast - waited an hour for food! Asked us after a long time if we wanted our bill - we just wanted our food. To compensate offered coffee and binets on another trip. Why would you want to go back?

Read about this place on Tripadvisor and it was worth the effort to find it. Great coffee, cosy seating inside or outside if you are brave enough at the moment (6 degrees). Cakes looked tempting but decided to save them for our next visit. Friendly, helpful staff Will definitely be returning during our stay.

It is almost amusing to see the pretence of Frankfurt queue - even in the frostiest of weather to ensure their demand to get coffee at Wacker. Certainly, it is good coffee. But the lack of service, seating and comfort make it hard to enjoy...

If you want to have an excellent cappuccino or simply a coffee, go to Kaffee Wackers. It's a small shop, not far from the Hauptwache and recognizable by the crowd of people standing in line around lunch, trying to order a cup. Don't hesitate to buy coffee beans (or ground coffee) there, too, since they have a vast selection (which... More
