Famous cakes, unfriendly staff

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.

I have friends who live in Gottingen, and every time I visit they take me to Cron and Lanz simply because it is an amazing place to eat at, for locals and visitors! The decor is old in style, but very modern. There is an upstairs dining area which is always lovely to sit at and enjoy your food or... More

Take the time machine some centuries back, to experience fine exquisite confectionery, bakery and other fine warm meals. You will be welcomed by the fresh grinded coffee. The interior makes you feel sitting with the old Local poets and physicians. Must see and take some eatable souvenirs.

We had been recommended by a native of Gottingen not to miss the experience of coffee and cake at Cron & Lanz and we went twice in two days! We have never been presented with such a vast choice of perfect cakes prepared with amazing precision and attention to detail. They taste as good as they look because they're clearly... More

Delicious variety of extraordinary cakes. Fresh and indulgent, you can get them by the slice. It's almost impossible to choose! Do not miss it if you are in town.

Best bakery in town, not so cheap, but it worth it! sweetness at its best! Fast serving, a lot of choice for cakes, or biscuits, or several desserts in general. If you come in Göttingen, you must come here

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.
