This is our first time eating at Middelberg at Jahnplatz 11 and it will be our last time too. The selection of cakes at Middelberg is very large and the cakes are delicious. However despite having at least 6 people working there on a Sunday afternoon, the service was slow and you notice that the staff was under pressure. They... More

Probably the best cakes in town. Definitely a must see in Aachen ( as long you don´t mind the calories )

An aunt brought us here for what 'in her opinion' were the best cakes in Aachen. It didn't disappoint and it would be hard to argue with her opinion. A spectacular selection of cakes on show. A breakfast buffet and lunch/dinner menu also available. Will visit again next time in Aachen.

Nice cakes definitely (especially the apple pie). Horrible Irish coffee: diluted low standard coffee, I am still wondering where was the whisky and no taste cream...

They claim to be one of the better coffeeshops and they certainly are. High quality cakes (cheese cake, black forest, fruit ...) and excellent coffee at a reasonable price. In addition they serve breakfast and afternoon meals. Our favorite place to have a coffee in Aachen.

THE best tarts, cakes, pies, pastries and chocolates. Amazing breakfast buffet all week. Order in advance, they are usually booked solid.

There you will find a mouthwatering selection of the finest cakes. I think over my years in Aachen I've tried them all. To eat in or take away. They do a fabulous muesli too. Biscuits, chocolates and even savoury quiches. They also do brunch and lunches. Worth a visit, but making up your mind which to choose will be hard.

If you love cakes and biscuits and other mouthwatering fineries of the kind, endulge yourself here and don't count the calories. If I were a dog, even thinking of the variety of bakeware and the cake art exhibits in this place I would start to salivate ! Go on, treat yourself and take some home or make somebody happy. We...

Middelberg has a big selection of cakes and tortes and I love the place. Dont go if you are on a diet, the temptation is just too big. They have a branch near Burtscheid too but if you are looking for a place to stop in between shopping or walkaround the old town, this place is great.

Thank Elibaba
