We went for breakfast there after reading the reviews written her. I think the place is good but not for a meal. There were only to waitress and they were very slow. They dont have English Menu , So it was difficult to order, We had to ask for just egg done in the way we wanted. The best thing... More

This is a must stop in Baden Baden. A gem of a place. It was pleasant to sit in their open area under a lovely big tree viewing the street and its movement. Great cakes ( no vegan options ) , fantastic service and fun to sit in.

Coffee and cake at Cafe Koening is deffinetly a must. I think the best cakes in Baden-Baden, we ordered a selection, the chocolate cake, berries cake, small creamy cakes with rasperries and coconut flakes and small hazelnut cake. All cakes tasted delicious and is a visit worth. My rating is based on their cakes staff is a little bit dry....

Husband and I came for afternoon coffee, I ordered a Black Forest cake, their most popular item, soooo good, nothing like you get in the US at all! We ended up pick another cake to bring back to our hotel to share later.

The setting is beautiful, as are the cakes, however the service here lets down what could be a lovely café. The plum cake was a little tart, but the hot chocolate was very nice. The chocolate milkshake is unfortunately completely bitter to the taste, with no sweetness. After my fiancé and I tried the milkshake, we asked the waitress to... More

Shown around by a true born baden-badener we had coffee and cake at cafe Koenig. Huge variety of home made cakes, fine selection of chocolates, tarts and cakes. Coffee and drinks are rather pricy, service was short on time and a smile wouldn't have hurt. I was fairly disappointed by the advertised special mind and lemon lemonade which ended up... More

We stopped in Baden Baden for a walk and a slice of their most famous Black Forest cake, once downtown we asked for the best pastry shop in town and a local lady gave us directions for Cafè Koening. We totally loved the place and the charming 1800's ambiance of the place. We were overwelmed by the variety of cakes... More

We enjoyed an afternoon coffee / dessert here after a morning at the Roman baths. The desserts are everything that one could want, and being able to sit outside to watch folks passing by is a definite plus.
