Great for Breakfast, always worth the wait

Cafe Karin is one of my favourite places in Frankfurt for Continental breakfast (bread, ham, cheese and a few pastries). There is always a queue to find a table and often you will have to squeeze on one with someone else but I like the atmosphere, the basic food and the price is not bad at all... read more

Just across the street from the Goethe-Haus. Popular with local parents and children, office workers and visitors to Goethe's birthplace. Simple menu of hearty soups, salads, pastries - enough to fill one up at lunchtime at modest cost. Service swift and efficient, in spite of the crowded tables.

We called in here as it looked pretty busy and popular, and we didn't want to pay the for the expensive breakfast our hotel offered. We were really glad we did. The staff here were very friendly and spoke good English. Prices were very good, and the food and drink was of high quality. We ended up spending nearly two... More

Popped in here as it was a short walk from the hotel huge portions and a nice environment for breakfast. The kids breakfast comes with a toy for each child and my wife and I really enjoyed our fresh breakfast served quickly. Coffee was good fresh bread was good and I really can't fault the place. Worth a trip if... More

Some waiters are not suitable for the service industry, and unfortunately we encountered one at Cafe Karin. We had seen some bad reviews about this cafe on TripAdvisor but chose to give it a try because of its location. But our experience really matched what we had read. I have never seen a waiter shouting at the customers in public... More

Waited almost an hour to order, went inside to ask politely if someone would come to our table, and the guy yelled at us. Worst service I ever saw, as if they actually resented us for going there! The place over the road is nice though.

Stopped in to Cafe Karin one afternoon while in Frankfurt. Luckily it was Sunday so I could take advantage of all day breakfast. Excellent omelet comes with a small salad and bread. Also had a juice and the price was very reasonable. Pleasant atmosphere and also appears to have a pretty good cocktail menu.

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 having a queue... More
