When in Leipzig, go to Cafe Restaurant Kandler (in front of the Thomaskirche) and order Leipziger Lerchen and/or Leipziger Räbchen to go with your espresso or capuccino! You won't be disappointed! The ambience was nice and the service was very friendly and efficient.

We were late with breakfast this Tuesday, but after visiting the Thomaskirche we needed this 'pampering' badly. Beautiful shop, classical german delicacies, chique pies not to neglect.
