The place to go if you are a real cake lover

This coffeehouse is located in the centre of Jena right at the entrance of the famous Wagnergasse. The decoration and the food are very classical and of high quality. If you are looking for a big variety of traditional cakes, to enjoy an original german "Kaffe und Kuchen" this is the place to go

i've bought here a big birthday cake with raspberries, it was huge and very delicious, the price was also ok (24€). we were eating it for a week and it was still fresh and tasty, so I'm sure that their cakes are delicious and qualitatively baked

OK, it may seem a bit too fancy, over-priced or what-have-you. The point is that there are not many other cosy places in Jena where you can have such good pastries or ice cream.

Service is friendly but slow, and prices are a bit extreme -especially for Jena! We paid over 40 euros for a breakfast and some drinks. Food was good, but definitely not worth the price.
