I went with my family around 12:00 and found a table. Very rich and tasty menu, one of the best option you may have your breakfast. I think I was lucky by not going early to have a quick service. Some who goes during pick hours may have problems with it. As a result it worth to go and enjoy... More

First things first, the food is good with a higher price tag than the few other brunch locations in Heidelberg. They do have several options for vegetarians. If this weren't the case, I would have put the overall rating to "terrible". Make sure that you call and reserve upfront, but still expect to wait for some while before you can... More

My sister in law was super excited to come to Germany and have Black Forest Cake, but after visiting several bakeries in Frankfurt and Heidelberg, we were unable to find it. We settled on this bakery, and realized it was a really good choice!! 3 of us ordered the apple strudel which was amazing (I am not a dessert person... More

We were very happy to see this great breakfast place still going. We used to visit a lot when we lived in the area 14 years ago. Extensive selection of breakfast choices available (may be a little too extensive) but definitely something for everyone. Service is okay, it's not going to be quick with that many choices on the menu... More

For cooking an Omelett and putting 5 breads in a basket you don't need 45min. We were really surprised of this slow kitchen. The waiter didn't explain us why it has taken so much time. The only thing he said was:"today we are very busy". The food quality is not worth the waiting time. That was the last time we... More

The decor was dreadful but the service was good as were the meals..I had a great salad. The restaurant also accepted credit cards which we found rare in Northern Germany....but much more readily available in the south.

We have looked for an alternative for the standard hotel/ buffet breakfast and found the perfect place, "Schwarzer Wahlfish" in Heidelberg. The restaurant is located in a quiet area near the city center. The breakfast menu has an international flavor, all a la carte. Friendly hosts, and the food has a high quality standard.

Food was great. Service was great. You get a lot for your money. Came here on a whim with no real expectations and it went above and beyond what I thought it would be. Highly recommend it if you're in the area.

We had brunch here the other weekend and was positively surprised by both the price as well as the amount of food offered. We tried a buffet which included everything from smoked salmon and local trout to grilled vegetables and fruit salad. The eggs were made to order as well as bacon and sausage. We really liked it and would... More

Amazing breakfast, served all day actually. For all the brekfast lovers out there, this is the place for you in Heidelberg. You can choose from so many types... Around 11 am the place is quite crowded
