If you need a coffee or another drink accompanied by a yum cake, this is the place to go. Choose from different varieties of cakes and just indulge in the taste. Yum and highly to recommend.

The cakes and "Torten" are superb. The coffee and atmosphere good as well. The service is a little spotty, but the place is so cosy and the view from the upstairs window toward the Johannisturm so great that one is most happy to be there enjoying the delightful pastries.

I sat down and waited.. after 5 minutes I went down to the counter to order but was told to wait at the table.. it took another 5 minutes until the waitress came, even though it was very quiet and besides me just another couple there. Good cake, nice seating upstairs, but the service needs to speed up.

i've bought here a big birthday cake with raspberries, it was huge and very delicious, the price was also ok (24€). we were eating it for a week and it was still fresh and tasty, so I'm sure that their cakes are delicious and qualitatively baked

This coffeehouse is located in the centre of Jena right at the entrance of the famous Wagnergasse. The decoration and the food are very classical and of high quality. If you are looking for a big variety of traditional cakes, to enjoy an original german "Kaffe und Kuchen" this is the place to go

OK, it may seem a bit too fancy, over-priced or what-have-you. The point is that there are not many other cosy places in Jena where you can have such good pastries or ice cream. I fell in love with the Swedish 'Eisbecher' here, which has vanilla ice cream, advocaat (similar to eggnog) and apple sauce in it. Go to Gräfe... More

Service is friendly but slow, and prices are a bit extreme -especially for Jena! We paid over 40 euros for a breakfast and some drinks. Food was good, but definitely not worth the price.

Graefe is right across the street from my office, but I am not sure how they have managed to stay in business. (Maybe because it looks nice inside?) Whenever I have gone, the wait staff has been incredibly grumpy. Prices are on the high side for Jena, yet whenever I've gone for a meal, the food has not been very... More
