It is difficult for me to rate the cafe, because I didn't have time to take a seat inside, but their ice-cream is definitely the best in the city. The variety of ice cream sorts is huge that you will need a month or more to try it all. I would recommend peppermint ice-cream, it is tasty and mint chilly.

However, this is not necessarily a bad thing as DDR wasn't the most charming place on earth. Today's interior uses cow fur decoration and provides seating on chairs, sofas and stools. I suppose you'll find your preferred seating vehicle. The colours... More

We have fond memories of this place, having eaten here many times during the eighties. However, nowadays, none of the charms it once possessed is left. The sundaes are huge, but nothing that shines or is memorable. The cheesecake lacked sugar, while the iced chocolate was quite good - very dense. The ice cream was okay, but nothing special. We...
