“EXQUISITE TORTES and THE PLACE TO GO FOR AFTERNOON COFFEE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Cron and Lanz sparkled 40 years ago when I was a student studying with the UC exchange program in Goettingen. This cafe is the real thing. You can't get a more traditional German coffee and cake time than here. It's downtown location is easily accessible. Go with hunger and your sweet tooth. The lovely silverware, the china with the Cron and Lanz logo is unique. Let yourself be pampered with a delicious slice of torte and take home some of their chocolate
specialties. Their location is within walking distance from the main train station. Ask passersby for help, if you are searching. Goettingen has many helpful students walking around. Afterwards take a stroll down Weende Street to see the Gaenseliesel (goose girl) in front of the Rathaus (Town Hall). Enjoy the 1/2 timbered houses. Don't forget your camera.

“Great Cake and Hot Chocolate, very bad service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Cron & Lanz is hands down the best place to eat cake in Göttingen. All of their products are outstanding and they offer a great choice of chocolates to take home and bring as presents.
However during the last 5 times I have been the service has been extremely bad. The waitresses are usually unfriendly and unhelpful. This place seems to specialise in the affluent over 50s and if you are younger do not expect to be treated kindly. However if you can overlook that it is worth a visit.

“A typical German cafe with excellent cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Ate there on 3 occasions last week and each was thoroughly enjoyable. The cakes are absolutely delicious, the staff friendly and if you're looking for paradise, chocolate heaven is on the ground floor!

The staff are courteous and friendly and most speak some English. Upstairs provides the better environment.

“Great traditional German cakes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

When in Göttingen, do try the 'Baumkuchen' also known as the 'log/tree cake' variety of cakes at Cron & Lanz

“Terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Terrible coffee which isn't even remotely drinkable, cakes are of average taste at best, disengaged to rude service. You get better coffee at the coffeeshop around the corner.
