Five of us called here on a Sunday morning only wanting coffee. This was no problem - the staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive. The cakes looked superb - we are sure that they will have tasted just as good as they looked.

Staff was very friendly. They let us use the toliet before they knew we would buy anything. Cake and drinks were delicious. This cafe is also very clean. I will definitely come again.

The coffee is good, but the real pleasure is the wonderful selection of cakes, including several that include the marmalade for which Passau is famous. Our party of four tried one of each. the portions were generous, the taste so delicious. You have to go!

My favorite place to catch up with a friend. Cakes and tea selection are excellent. Ambience is very welcoming and pleasing. This is frequented by the elderly. So dont be surprised when you walk in and it's full of old couples.
