Breakfast really was good and the server did her best in English to take care of us. Coffee and tea was great and I would definitely recommend.

Very large cafe, with a long menu for food drinks and pastries. There is even a list of magazines you can read there. We had specially coffees with gugelhupf and topfenstrudel. Both were good.

We ate here on two evenings, the first time we chose from the limited English menu and the food was very good. The second time we discovered a page of specials (in German) in the German menu. The waiter was helpful in explaining the dishes....More
