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!

It's probably the right place to be on Saturday morning in Frankfurt. The place was full, but still we got seated very fast. We had a very good breakfast with all kind of cheese and sausage. The orange juice was fresh and the service was good.

Great for brunch/breakfast, but gets too busy very quickly and then too noisy. It also gets very hot and there is no flow of air, we wanted to open a door for a while to get some fresh air in, but some other diners wouldn't agree.

Very nice place, gets full really fast, in this case always ask those tables with extra free chairs, they will let you seat with them. Try any of the breakfasts and the ingwer tea. The place next door is also good for dinner. From there it is perfect to get to the Market and then to the Dom or city... More

My friend and I had lunch here. The veal goulash was delicious but my friend's spaghetti wasn't great. The cafe has a nice atmosphere with mostly local people I think. The staff are nice but seem quite rushed and were a little abrupt and we had to wait about ten minutes to pay the bill.
