A quick coffee and a freshly baked Schmalznudel- what a wonderful little break in this cafe that has been around for ages. Quick friendly service, tasty pastry, very reasonable prices.

This place was recommended by my lonely planet guide and by a local tour guide. It definitely impressed me! Super central, cosy, bustling with locals and was well priced! Recommend trying the Schmalznudel (their speciality) especially on a cold day.

Family group - 2 adults and a child. Staff did speak English - we ordered in German - we need the practice. Fantastic Coffee - fresh made doughnuts and the service was great. We had three drinks and three doughnuts and service for 20 Euros.

This place is an absolute must in this neighborhood! The staff is wonderfully friendly, the food was absolutely delicious and worth the trip across town on its own. The WC IS FREE, but you should really buy something, because your eyes will roll back in...More

I tried one of each of baked goods on offer here, and they were all lovely, but I chose poorly in sitting outside. Inside is small and was packed, so I didn't have much choice, but a schmalznudel dipped in sugar is a siren for...More
