basically catered to university students so the food and drinks were reasonably priced. service was not as good but the personnel was, at least, friendly. what i liked was the central location as it is close to the cinema and shopping area.

We went here in a fairly big group (100 people of so), some of which were eating while others only drinking. I took a ceasar burger, which was good enough but the meat was maybe a bit too cooked - however, it tasted OK and it came with a bunch of fries for a reasonable price.

The beers, once you are able to order them, are good: they have a couple of good bottled options, one blonde weizen and one dark weizen.

The whole problem with this place is the service, which is not only slow but also quite unreliable. Even tough the blond waitress is one of the pretties girls I've ever seen, it doesn't justify waiters "forgetting" what you order (can happen more than one time, also on the same order). And, of course, it takes forever both to be able to order and to get the drinks. Paying is another interesting task: we couldn't pay to the waiters at the table (maybe they were too busy) but even after going inside we couldn't pay at the counter and had to catch one of the waiters when he/she was near the counter to pay. Easy, uh?

Probably this place can be a good one only if there's not too much people in there (but it's quite big, so I think the situation we found was fairly common).

Basically this is a bar. It has overpriced bar food which is okaaay, but nothing to write home about. I suppose it is nice to sit in the sun with your student friends and that's fine if you are going to the university, but as a destination, never.

CE is definitely a student cafe, and most of its patrons are students from Goethe Uni next door or from the neighborhood. It offers a good selection of menu items ... especially great that they serve breakfast all day, and although it isn't as refine as other cafes in Frankfurt, the food is better than most. The service is nonexistent and you will have to literally flag down a waitress or waiter, but on the flip side, you can sit there for hours milking a latte macchiato or read an entire Tolstoy novel, and be left alone.

The service is bad! You have to yell and wave your hand etc. For someone to serve you. Then you'll have to wait forever for the food to come, but at least is good food!
