Busy Cafe for Brunch

Busy cafe with a wide offering of breads, eggs and beverages for brunch. Rather easy to find in a street off the city centre and seems to be very popular with families too. English menu available and crew was attentive. Did not feel rushed by the staff and could take my time to enjoy my tea despite... read more

We tried Karin today for brunch and had to wait about 15 mins for seats. The waiters and waitresses are friendly and speak very good English. We had homemade pancakes and omelette, both were very good. They also serves great cakes. Sat there for an hour or so, no complaints.

Was in Frankfurt for a few hours and was looking for a place for lunch. We had an app with restaurant's around us and chose Cafe Karin. We got there around 1. It was busy, but got lucky and got seats. They do have an English menu for breakfast/brunch. Their lunch menu was handwritten and our waiter was very kind... More

Visited for a coffee and cake during weekend but it was overcrowded. Waiters and waitresses running around so hectic, rather ignorant to guests coming in and the noise from the kitchen was 'nervtötend'. The waitress's attitude was very discriminating to me being non German and challenged me against my complaints for the loud noise in the kitchen. If you are... More

Was staying with friends and they recommended we go here. Exact words were "this is the breakfast place." Delicious. Menu in German, but as I was with German speakers they translated. Chai tea was good, pancakes were delicious (they have both sweet with jam, nutella and salty with bacon, cheese, tomatos). Fairly cheap, 10 € for drink and food. Arrived... More

The breakfast in Frankfurt was something we could really get behind being visitors from the US. Frühstücks and pastries abounded in Frankfurt, though we had some of the better items at Cafe Karin. I ordered a nice sampler Frühstück while my fiance ordered one of the egg dishes, while we both got some coffee. Everything was well prepared and very... More

It would be easy to overlook this restaurant from the outside, but I searched it out after reading some reviews. The inside is charming and bright...the opposite of the outside. The food was very good. There is a good variety of European breakfast favorites. I had a cheese and meat plate with a basket of various German breads. They make... More

We found this cafe by accident and were so pleased we did! The breakfast menu is extensive and very reasonably priced. The eggs, meats and cheeses all delicious and the fruit salad made a refreshing start to the day. The waitress was cheery and very happy to speak to us in English. The best coffee and most pleasant place we've... More

The place never looses its charm and its popularity...solid breakfast, great eggs, buns and amazing coffee...Always worth a visit. Great service. The only thing is that it is very full, and if you are sitting alone, don't be surprised that some people would ask you if they could just join....not everybodies taste. This place is highly recommended though!
