If I hadn't gone there for a seminar, I'd never have known about this beautiful old university town and one of Germany's best cafés, in my opinion - the Germans do cakes and coffee really well but you still have to hunt for those outstanding cafés and Cron & Lanz is definitely right up the top! Downstairs they have a wide range of cakes, biscuits and chocolates and then you can sit up- or downstairs to order your beverages and eat. Everything is stylish and comfortable and service is excellent. I kept going back during my stay, taking a slightly larger group of people with me each time as they became enthusiasts like me. Göttingen is worth a visit for its old town and Cron & Lanz is the icing on the cake!

My wife did a year abroad in college in Goettingen and Cron & Lanz was her most favorite place in town. It is a luxurious setting for cakes, sweets and coffee. While a bit pricy it is heaven for those who love pastries and excellant coffee. This spot should not be missed if you are in town.

I know several female friends and colleagues who, if they found themselves in Cron & Lanz, would think they had died and had arrived in Heaven. The nearest equivalent I can think of for a British traveller is Bettys, the Yorkshire-based tea-rooms. As nice as Bettys is, and it certainly is, this is Germany and the Germans take cakes to a whole other level. This, in large part, due to the generous use of butter as an ingredient. I went along to indulge my partner but I have to say I was won over - the strawberry tart I had was divine, with a really good strawberry flavour. Excellent coffee and efficient service also, in pleasant surroundings.

I have been going to Goettingen for many many years and always stop at Cron und Lanz for a piece of cake and a coffee (or in winter for a wonderful hot chocolate). It's been around since the 18th century and is one of Goettingen's great culinary institutions. Great but, of course, fattening as most good things are..

It is delicious! And the service is good as well. Always very friendly, helpful and quick.
I go there every time I visit the city (for the time being every second month). The prices - well for a large slice of cake and a coffee it is not more expensive than the average coffee shop - and so much better. Here you are served at the tebles - and the rooms upstairs are also worthwhile a visit.
