A wonderful café!

This café offers a big variety of delicious homemade cakes and coffee specialities. The quality is superb and the value for money is unbeatable. The seating and decoration, overall the whole building is worth seeing. There is a beautiful grand staircase!

Stuffs are well-dressed but their services are not good..... Often unfriendly. They don't allow us to come into the kafe with our baby wagon. They claimed that it was too big. I totally disagree some of comments by others, tasty cakes, nice chocolate, the best cafe in Goettingen.... They are by far too sweet to me. This place is definitely... More

Wow, if you find yourself in beautiful Gottigen, you must visit this restaurant! We visited at the recommendation of German friends and loved it! The decor is so charming and lovely, unlike any restaurant I've experienced in the USA. The coffee and cakes are delicious, along with the savory foods. Definitely eat upstairs so you can enjoy the ambiance. The... More

Cron & Lanz is the best place I know in whole Europe for excellent cakes, biscuits, tarts ice-cream and other sweets. It`s an old traditional cafe, with nice old fashioned furniture and 2 lovely outdoor places,one in front of the main entrance and one on the roof, behind the house.

The iconic coffee place in the heart of Goettingen with excellent cakes and delicious sweets. But the staff especially the manager often have an arrogant and unfriendly attitude. Much nicer is their smaller offspring in the so called Ostviertel.

Local friends shouted us coffee and cake here. It was amazing; the cakes looked and tasted sooo delicious and the Viennese-style tea room atmosphere was really lovely! Go early so you can choose from the broadest selection as popular items sell out. Everything is beautiful and just window-shopping makes your mouth water.

Cron & Lanz has plenty of delicious desserts. I love the atmosphere there. located in the city center, near the shops and restaurants and near the alt-rateshaus.

This place is to be recommended for its excellent cakes, tarts and chocolates. They are very proud of their Baumkuchen, a traditional German cake which takes very long to make. (Though I personally don't think it's all that special.) Maybe try the chocolatey Herrentorte instead? Unfortunately the staff is notoriously unfriendly. In the words of a good friend: a smile...

Handmade chocolates + delicious cakes in a rather traditionally styled "Café". Quite pricy bites, served/sold by the most unfriendly staff in southern Lower Saxony. Better try out the Café Botanik" instead, with homemade cakes in a comfy atmosphere.

For cakes this place its far away the best in the whole region. You can get always something there. It's not a restaurant its not a Bakaery but it's really good.
