Located in the middle of the Mur river, this place and caffee are interesting and deserve a visit. Service is ok. Try the bathrooms for another sensitive experience (multi-reflexes).

We went in soon after arriving in Graz hoping to get lunch, but no such luck. Still, a refreshing drink and a 'low calorie' cake (not) gave us sufficient energy to go up to the Schloss on the train and walk around for an hour...More
