We sat at the outdoor terrace upstairs and it was quite pleasant. We had brunch which was fine and fairly priced. Food was okay. I think it was the atmosphere that we enjoyed best.

Chocolate on one side pastries on the other! Whats not to love! I make a special trip every time we visit the in laws there. If you dine in you pick out what you want then take a seat. You then order coffee or beverages and they will bring it to you. I was lucky the last time and received... More

This is the place to go in Gottingen. Fantastic offering of cakes and drinks in a very beautiful café surrounding. It was hot when we went to I had some milkshakes. Forget lunch, just dive straight into a Goethe or Praline cake. Also lots of delicious chocolates to buy for friends and family back home.

Cron and Lanz has been around forever, at least as long as I can remember. And it always has been the place to see and be seen. So get down there in an afternoon, sit outside in the sunshine and enjoy one of their delicious cakes. And forget the calories for once. Their coffee is the real thing, and they... More

Very good cake and pralines with long tradition. This place has been around for ages and the quality of the food remains very high. There are many old people present at all times, and the interior was designed in the 90's. Other than that a good place to buy unhealthy sweet food.

Cron and Lanz sparkled 40 years ago when I was a student studying with the UC exchange program in Goettingen. This cafe is the real thing. You can't get a more traditional German coffee and cake time than here. It's downtown location is easily accessible. Go with hunger and your sweet tooth. The lovely silverware, the china with the Cron... More

Cron & Lanz is hands down the best place to eat cake in Göttingen. All of their products are outstanding and they offer a great choice of chocolates to take home and bring as presents. However during the last 5 times I have been the service has been extremely bad. The waitresses are usually unfriendly and unhelpful. This place seems... More

Ate there on 3 occasions last week and each was thoroughly enjoyable. The cakes are absolutely delicious, the staff friendly and if you're looking for paradise, chocolate heaven is on the ground floor! The staff are courteous and friendly and most speak some English. Upstairs provides the better environment.

When in Göttingen, do try the 'Baumkuchen' also known as the 'log/tree cake' variety of cakes at Cron & Lanz

Terrible coffee which isn't even remotely drinkable, cakes are of average taste at best, disengaged to rude service. You get better coffee at the coffeeshop around the corner.
