Very nice all day breakfast Sunday

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... read 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.

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

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
