Breakfast done well...

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... read more

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

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

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
