Cafe König is old world charm in the center of town. You walk in the front door past cakes and decadent pastries and head in the back for the charming tearoom. It's busy, popular and bustling. Everyone comes here! I had a delicious hot chocolate and their famous Schwarzwaldkirschtorte. The cake was delicious! I know why it's so famous! They... More

The quality of the cakes, drinks and chocolates is great. The ambiance is fine, could be nicer. It's a bit older, but not in the positive, old-world sense. The staff is friendly, but not overly so. The location couldn't be better - right at the beginning (or end) of town.

So many cakes to choose from. All looked delicious. The outdoor sitting area is just too cute for words.

I have never had better eclairs in my life. I do not know what they add to the custard, but it is heavenly. Can someone maybe share the secret of the ingredients? :) I am trying to replicate it, but still not quite there yet.

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....
