We have visited Sylt now for the 6th time, coming from Australia to celebrate my sisters birthday in September when she is on her annual holidays on the island.

Whenever I visit Sylt I make sure to also go to "Kupferkanne" one time. It's a beautiful area (protected nature around the Kupferkanne) and it's close to the beach. I always go to have coffee and cake. So I can't review any other food. I love the cake though and it's well know for it's cake everywhere. During summertime they... More

If you every go to Sylt you have have breakfast at Kupferkanne. There are dozens of tables outside under huge pine trees--it's like eating in a park. Great views of the bay as well. Classic German breakfast. If you have never had a German breakfast you are missing out. Amazing cakes as well. I think people must 4-5 hours at... More

Kupferkanne is a little difficult to find and out of the way but so worth going. Here you will get the best cake, great coffee and something that is increasingly difficult to find on Sylt - a real original. When the weather is nice you can enjoy sitting in the wonderful large garden (they also serve lunch and some dinner... More

we went as a large group (15 of us) and the service was very good. Unfortunately by the time we arrived the menu was limited to a few items but those were all delicious and the setting makes this place a 'must visit'. The inside is quite quirky and finding the toilets can be a little bit of a fun... More

Kupferkanne counts as a must-see- and taste experience for tourits on Sylt, vaunting the best cakes on the island. We were disappointed from the very beginning when we entered the location and did not feel welcome at all, but were rudely shooed around the place. The waiters don't seem to know a thing about basic politeness, let alone hosting. The... More

We visited this place on my parent's golden wedding day. It was meant to be something special, my sister flew extra from the USA and my parents also came from abroad. It was busy but we found a cozy table. The table needed cleaned as the cups and plates from the previous people were still there. The waitress took our... More

Ok, so maybe their much talked-about cake isn't the very best ever? It is still top-notch, fresh out of the oven, not too sweet, with a generous layer of fruit or curd and, to make it perfect, a generous helping of whipped cream. Forget about dinner afterwards :o) Their milk coffee is served in a bowl as big as a... More

I have heard about "Die Kupferkanne" for years and years and was very excited when I finally got to visit. The history of the the building and the inside is very unique. Outside you'll find a very nicely landscaped Kaffeegarten. The "Kuchen" is always fresh and the pieces are big, but the selection is not extensive by German standards. Our... More
