Ok, so it's a hangout for elderly couples and ladies who lunch, but for a bit of old school grandeur and nice crockery, you can't beat it. Cake was tasty, and I didn't find the portion small as other reviewers seem to have found. Service was efficient and formal, but not rude. Wish I'd had time to go back and... More

Located in the heart of the high street of Göttingen (Weender Straße) this is quite a traditional place for cakes and some candies. Not all cakes displayed on the menu are available (which happens when things are prepared freshly, of course), still variety is quite good. Taste is average, however, and unfortunately sizes are really, really small. So more of... More

Candy store inside is quite ok, however cakes prices differ from what is stated on the labels. Outside cafe waiter denied ordering the cakes, requesting to come inside and brought cold coffee. Outrageous. Avoid.

When you walk into this café, the charme of oldern days hits you straight away with a smell of old citizen's home. And the waitresses have the charme of Nazi-Deutschland. My girlfriend and I had a coffee and cake (which both lack excellency for the price you have to pay for it) at this place and when we were done,... More

If you're looking for fantastic place to have the most famous Baumkuchen or just every kind of pastry Chron&Lanz is what you are looking for. Try to sit outside in summer watch people passing by while having coffee and a pice of torte. ENJOY

I am a student here and have come frequently for different cakes and coffee, as well as brunch. Everything I've tried has been exceptional. Brunch food was good, although portions are small. For budgeters- it is cheaper to take a slice of cake to go than it is to eat inside the restaurant. Highly recommended and the only pastry shop... More

One of, if not the best Konditorei in Germany. I make every effort to stop here when travelling through, either by car or train. The Sarah Bernard is a Torte to die for. But so is the Herren Torte, the Aida and the many Baumkuchen variations. For something more savoury - try their Quiches. If you are strapped for time,... More

Cron & Lanz is an institution in Göttingen, and rightly so. The cakes are fantastic, so are the cookies and chocolates. The only thing missing is a good coffee, the espressi are a nightmare.
