We rushed in for a sudden downpour came down while we were enjoying the opera architecture. The rain got really bad outside but the sweet cakes and coffee in here were heavenly delightful. The porcelain torte was especially lovely. The service was nice.

Facing onto the square in front of the Semperoper (Opera House).

Lovely little restaurant/café with great food and excellent service.

The cakes are a real delight, just take a look at the accompanying photograph (the wife didn't even wait for me to take the photo before attacking it).

We even had to return for a second visit during our wonderful stay in Dresden.

Get it on your list and have a cake for me.

Located in what was once the guardhouse of the palace, the interior of the cafe is a classic of moulded and carved wood, newspapers on pegs, mirrors and wall sconces, banquettes and comfortable upholstered chairs.
There is also an outdoor terrace of umbrella tables.
It is a wonderful place to get a sense of the traditional unhurried 'cafe culture', along with good coffees and a highly exuberant range of pastries.

We stumbled upon this cafe and without any research we decided to try it. We had soup, crepes and desserts with coffee and tea. Soups are excellent here and so are the desserts! For us this was the best meal we had in Dresden.

Lovely Monday afternoon in Dresden topped off by afternoon coffee and Apfelstrudel (which my wife and I agreed was one of the best we had experienced in Germany)
Beautiful location, friendly staff.
Only wish we had the time to enjoy the dinner menu.
Much recommended.
