The food is delicious, and the music is nice. The service is ok, not super friendly, but then again that's quite typical... read more

The deco is the signature of this great place, rooms in different colors, retro furniture, and cool people. And original door shapes!

This is such a beautiful interior, mood lighting and really delicious food. I've had the baked feta cheese with salad almost every time and it's so well done. Their seasonal drinks are often quite good. You'll have the best experience if you can nab a comfy seat..this place is often full and people sit outside even when it's cooold. I've... More

Vintage / chabby chic style of this café is most likely its best asset. Cozy and welcoming, it has a very nice vibe. It is not a place where to go for dinner/lunch, but they serve some dishes which are quite average but not too bad. Service is on average quite slow, but it really depends on the day.

Maingold has a lovely vintage feel, from the cocktail chairs to the cute little salt and pepper shakers. They do really good cocktails, I would recommend trying a Hugo which is the cocktail of Frankfurt - some prosecco with elderflower cordial. It's a good choice to relax for a coffee, have a bite to eat or enjoy an after dinner... More

We spent a nice and calm evening at this place. Perfect for sitting outside and enjoying for example a piece of cheesecake with a glass of rhabarber schorle (rhubarb sparkling drink). The staff is attentive and not annoying. Prices are considerate.

Loved it here. Great family atmosphere and cool retro decor. Fabulous home cooked food and delightful friendly service. Amazing frankfurter with scrumptious potato salad. A nice place to chill with good coffee and extremely comfortable chairs

We went to Cafe Maingold as a party of 5 including 2 babies. We got a great table outside, sheltered from the damp autumnal air by a large umbrella. The old fabric-covered chairs were delightfully evocative of days gone by and an apt taster for the decadent dusty delights to be found within the labyrinthine interior. The coffee was large,...
