The workers were very nice polite and professional. The atmosphere was very relaxing with a great view of the city of... More

It's a bit pricy as restaurant\cafe. However, the quality of the brunch buffet is good, it's all you can eat for 20€. You pay more than the average Giessen restaurant for the nice view of the surroundings.

If you are planning to drink and enjoy the view of Giessen, Dach Cafe is the best place in town. It has a skybar and one of the coolest places in Giessen 👍🏻

I had breakfast with a friend during the week here and paid 7,50€ per person for a meager buffet. My Latte Macchiato was 3,20€ for a 200ml sip. The variety was very sparse. Two selections of bread and what you see in the picture is what you get. That's it!!! In the end we paid 23€ (2 x buffet +... More

We have been there for breakfast at a Saturday morning. I loved it. Friendly helpful staff; big buffet and you can order eggs and other specialities from the card. Price is fair, quality excellent. Will always come back. But for weekend you should book a table :)

The Dach-Cafe is very recommendable. We were here for a business dinner. The staff reserved a private table for us in the corner. There are two areas: a Cafe and a Restaurant. 14th Level, with nice view over Giessen (which is not such an exciting city). 20 minutes walk from the Hauptbahnhof plus good parking facilities, because the premise is...

A good place to eat as the food seems decent and consistent. Definitely one of the hippest places in Giessen to go. During warmer days it is very nice to sit out on the balcony to see the views especially at sunset and into the night. The service is friendly enough though be aware as the night goes on and...

Cappuccino wasn't coffee, but milk with a sense of coffee. The sweet was sour, not due to a fine marmelade, but due to the many days in fridge. Tables dirty and staff not caring about it. You have to be patient to order and get your order. Only the view was quite good, but not good enough to get us... More
