The CAFE RIQUET in Leipzig at the romantic Schuhmachergäßchen is a very unique building. Looks special from outside us special inside too.
Very friendly service, good variety for breakfast and lunches.
It is a treat to visit location as coffee houses with style and uniqueness!

We ate breakfast here. All delicious and served efficiently. Offered a range of bread, cold meats and egg. Choose from a set menu option. All good.

We were visiting Leipzig for the day and stumbled across this very quaint, old world, coffee shop. We ordered a hot chocolate, long black and one of their superb cakes to share. The decor is just worth a visit, they still have an old cash register on the counter to add more nostalgia. We enjoyed the surroundings, coffee was good and cake delicious.

Three of us dropped in for cake and coffee after visiting Thomaskirche and Nikolaikirche and enjoying lunch at Rathskeller.

This is an old historic building with fine woodwork and lighting inside, to match.

Upon entry, one is greeted with a glass counter of breads and cakes.

The coffee and teas were very good, with many available choices. The cakes were delicious, even though not made on the premises but purchased locally.

Service was average and prices appropriate for this type of establishment.

We have been to this coffee house many times and have generally found the quality of the coffee and cakes very high quality. The house is always clean and has a nice old fashioned feel to it.
Sometimes the service can be very slow. We visited last Wednesday and although it was busy, some if the staff take a while to clear tables. We had to wait a while to be served and had to demand we were served before other people who had come in after us. We had a dozy waitress who looked clueless.
Not the cheapest but good quality but service needs improving.
