“Black Forest cake”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

They cake was so good. I loved it but my husband did not. It wasn't really his thing though. Staff spoke good enough English.

“A Step Back in Time...and fantastic cake!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Come to this quaint German cafe and bakery to have really good Black Forest cake and a cup of coffee. We ate here before lunch so we wouldn't miss this special cake! Very authentic place with kind wait staff who made the extra effort to bring my husband whipped cream...for his coffee!

We also bought the chocolate covered cherries...best I have ever had. Just watch out for the cherry pits soaking in the kirsch!

“Worth the calories!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

We rode the train to the touristy town of Triberg (a beautiful trip) for two reasons: to buy cuckoo clocks and to eat Black Forest Cake and we were not disappointed.

The man at the clock shop told us about Cafe Schafer, explaining that the owner makes the original Black Forest Cake from his family's original recipe, and directed us up the hill.

The Cafe Schafer staff was friendly and attentive. The cake was delicious and the coffee was perfectly brewed.
