This is one of the oldest cafe's in Germany. Established in the 16th century. It is pretty inside and has 2 or 3 floors. We had a special coffee in the main ground floor room. It was cold and the coffee was spiked and wonderfully warming.

I sat down at this tourist trap for one simple reason - they are supposed to serve two local dessert: lerchen and räbchen. Did not find the lerchen (should have probably gone inside), but the räbchen was on the menu. And the batter-covered and marzipan-filled fried plums tasted great - a very nice dessert. The cappuccino, however, was horrible. Just... More

There seems to be two (or more?) businesses operating at this location. One is downstairs, serving ice cream and such, and partially on the street, but then the tourist is sent to the THIRD floor to a rather empty space with green chairs (where Schumann and others supposedly used to visit). The museum room (also on the third floor) was... More

Had a great time looking round the coffee museum then went outside and ordered a special coffee with spirits and a wonderful dish of matches herring with salad, majionaise and fried potato. Not cheap but absolutely delicious and a lovely setting in front of the fountain.

While the facility is worthwhile a glimpse visit, the “museum” is just a display of coffee serving tools widely seen almost anywhere. Food and service at this place are however a different story. While being aware of translation mistakes in the bi lingual German/English menu, they will bear no responsibility for serving the wrong choice and will blame the guest... More

Although claiming to be the oldest coffee house in Germany, this title belongs to the Cafe Prinzess in Regensburg which was serving coffee 30 years earlier. Nevertheless, this Konditorei was established inthe 16th century and is well worth the visit.
