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.

It's hard to find any comparable breakfast in Aachen. But lately it feels like they don't maintain their quality. There is still a great choice of cheese, cold cuts, cereals, cakes, eggs, sausages and more but the quality starts to dwindle. An hour before end of breakfast time they don't refill the breadrolls. The Juice dispencer has to be repaired... More
