We were looking for a simple, tasty lunch on a hot day. By accident, we found Café Grundmann on a way. The tables outside looked inviting. Food was nice, interesting and tasty. A Summerspaghetti, lamb and fennel salad - all tasty. Good coffee.

Visited for lunch with a friend, which after a long wait was worth it, albeit a little pricey, but still worth it. Unfortunately the waiting staff made us feel very unwelcome. My spoken German is good (and always incredibly polite, just to be safe!), and I've worked over here for some time now, but my slight accent and younger appearance... More

The place looks very cozy and the selection of breakfast/brunch menus is quite good. As I came in the place was quite busy, with several German families occupying almost all the tables, and making it seem like a Swedish typical fikka place. You probably will be quite satisfied to come here if you want a good big breakfast or brunch... More

The raspberry cake is as good as it was 10 yrs ago. We tried boysenberry today which was also excellent. The small minus was they weren't able to serve our coffees on ice cubes only am iced coffee (hete with vanilla ice cream) wad available at 36 degrees. What a pity. We asked to clean the table again and we're... More

We decided to give it a try on a Sunday for brunch. It was the right decision! The place is located on one of the nicest streets in Leipzig. The style of the restaurant is quite nice. The service is good and they are quite frustrating friendly. Though it is not a buffet (as almost any other brunch) the food... More

What a wonderful deco building to have probably the best breakfast I've had in years. A dazzling array of coffees to choose from (large Mexican coffee) and great value breakfasts of ample proportions. Don't miss it!

The atmosphere of the café is welcoming and interiors reflect the very classic art deco style of the early 20th century. The outdoor seating area is comparably small and right at the edge of a road junction. Thus, we stayed inside and enjoyed the Coffeehouse atmosphere. The service was prompt and very welcoming. The menu reflects a rather modern style... More

A comfortable atmosphere and a wide breakfast menu that doesn't disappoint. A group of 6 of us turned up and ordered various items from the breakfast options. It wasn't quick to arrive, but in reasonable time. We kept on ordering more bits and pieces because we were enjoying it so much. Would love to go back. A little way out... More

it´s a location for higher demands if you like to have breakfast with special menus and if you prefer more the kind of business atmosphere

We ordered club sandwiches and an omelette at about noon on a Saturday. The restaurant was about 25% filled. Both these facts make it inexplicable that our meals took about an hour to arrive.
