Wasps! Sweets! Drinks!

Both Trip Advisor and the folks up at the Senfmuhle pointed us here. It made for a fine and respectable repast. If I had an option between 3 and 4, I would have put it there, I think. It is an unremarkable cafe, but in Monschau, it seems a cut above given oast experience, and compared with the... read more

We have the most fantastic five o'clock tea with ice and/or cake. It was like a nice meal that lasted well into the evening. Even the memory tasts good.

We arrived early on a cold Ascention day morning (something we had overlooked) so Monschau was basically closed. Hot coffee was a life saver and prepared us for a day of sightseeing and hiking. We noticed that this was a very popular breakfast location for the locals. Pricey but good quality.

Delicious, with a nice salad and wedges of fried potato-cake. Good beer and a great little patio area. I am not a sweets person sowas pleasantly surprised by the quality of the lunch.

Monschau is beautiful little town where time stood still. Sitting on the terrace of the cafe you have a great view on the big, red house (Das rote Haus). The cakes look and taste great. My coffee however could use more strength, but that's how I like it. The waitress did her job, but smiling was not included.

What a beautiful cafe to sit and enjoy coffee and cake. The waitress was lovely with a no bull approach. The service was very quick and efficient as well. The range of cakes and chocolate was to die for. And the location was simply stunning. If you want a day of history and beauty, this is the place to be.... More

Good choice of food for a lunchtime snack - we 'plumped' for the sausage with potato salad; washed down with a glass of local beer. The food was excellently prepared and tasted delicious as did the beer. Because of the time of year there were not mant other customers but I think it could get pretty busy in the height... More

We were impressed by the wonderful variety of 'Kuchen' available at this cafe, even late in the afternoon. The yoghurt cream cake was especially delicious! We visited twice, sitting inside on the first occasion and outside opposite the Roten Haus on the second. There was a wide variety of hot meals available too but we didn't sample those so can't...
