We were not disappointed, especially considering the fact that we rode through the rain for the last couple of kms. The cafe has indoor wintergarden seating (heated) plus tables inside... read more

The old, wet weather did not detract from the charm of this cafe. Serving the largest cream puffs ever, the cafe also serves hearty meals. A renovated cottage on the island if Sylt makes for a picturesque setting for any outing.

This was a second visit to this restaurant, and it was again a positive experience. The only word of criticism to utter is that unless you know German, there might be bit of guess work ahead with the menu!

Nice place with a great outside area and good food to enjoy during your day trip . We loved the tea selection and their soups! Excellent. The staff is ok. Friendly but for a cozy location like this - we missed the heart.

As the name says, most food is sweet, german apple pancakes with something in top or cake. We also ordered spaghetti, which was ok but not really what this place is all about.
