“the perfect iced coffee”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

We have passed by quite a few times and always thought ´this place looks so cool!´, but only yesterday were we able to sit for a coffee. It is a known fact that generally in germany they have a bizarre notion of cold coffee, and we have times and again experimented at our own peril! I can tell you, after years of trying, these guys have got it right! Unless you want to go with the starbucks version, or the look-at-my-new-handbag Nesspresso on Goethestrasse, or a frappe at a cafe owned by greeks...
They do 2 shots of espresso and just milk (they also serve the whipped cream nonsense and the ice cream thing) and you can ask them to just add a little brown sugar, and you´ll be laughing!
Top marks go for the cool interiors and exteriors, plus my daughter had the lemon tart, and that was delicious...
We are thinking of going back for brunch. And cafe frappe, of course...

“Lovely café between Konstablerwache and the zoo”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

The Maingold is one of my favourite cafés in Frankfurt. It is divided into several small rooms.

They serve food all day though I prefer going there for breakfast. The breakfast options are really good value for money.

All in all, a nice place to go an have a relaxing cup of coffee. It can get busy on Sunday mornings so reserve a table if you are more than a few people or want to ensure that you get a table.

“Very good choice!”
Reviewed September 24, 2011

If you are looking for a delicious quick meal or a coffee and a piece of homemade dessert in an amazing atmosphere, go there! It is located close to the centre next to a park. The place is very nice (old-school) decorated. The service is quick and smiling. Eat "Flammkuchen" or "quiche Lorainne"!:)
