Not great place for coffee. Guy didn't seem to want us to sit down and just made us a takeway. The coffee was okay, but they seemed to prefer people to order food as well.

been here a few times and always had a good time! Great central location, inside and outside seating, usually full of fun young people, with friendly staff. Food is usually good and fresh... except the scrambled eggs are a rather overdone omelette... ;) still, great place!

Cafe Karin has been around for a while and has plenty of regulars who love the place. All in all, Cafe Karin holds a comfortable position among Frankfurt cafes. On a Saturday morning my simple order of Eis Karin (latte macchiato with ice and scoop of ice cream) and a sandwich took 40 minutes, and getting the bill another 15... More

This is the place to be if you want to have an amazing breakfast, which is served until late. The coffee is good, too.

What a great place for a breakfast. We ordered the Westend which is a shared breakfast with bread croissants and several cheeses and meets (and jams) for toppings, eggs and muesli. Atmosphere was great and so was the service. You could tell local people like this place and I would have breakfast here every weekend if I lived here. Great... More

Came here for Sunday brunch and promptly sat at the bar as I was solo. The cafe is located just off of the Hauptwache bahn stop. If I wanted a table, the wait would have been an hour so I'd reco to come early. They have an English menu if you ask. I ordered the farmers omelette, a pancake and... More

Had an awesome breakfast at Cafe Karin. The place is really cute and the waitress was so friendly. The pancake/crepes were the best I've had in Frankfurt.. Omelette was really great also.

We were lucky for being seated promptly. -Drinks are very expensive and only come in very small glasses -The homemade bircher muesli is one of the best I've had. - Eggs... More
