“Old world charm and the best cakes in Weimar.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

Although they serve a good range of savoury dishes, we prefer it for afternoon tea and cakes. Great range of tortes, mousses and cakes: from traditional to novel, elegant or robust in appearance and texture, all taste really rather good and fresh. Generous amounts of fruit, fresh fillings and creams. Unobtrusive, polite staff.Always a pleasurable experience.A hundred times better since they went non-smoking. A negative note for patrons with restricted mobility: the café is not wheelchair accessible and the lavatories (although good-looking)can only be reached via a wide spiral staircase.

“Great cakes, but extremely unfriendly service team”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2011

This is a wonderful old school Cafe right in the heart of Weimar and we really enjoyed the great cake selection and coffee specialities however not only did it take forever to order, but the service team seemed not to care at all about foreign guests (we were three Germans plus 5 Americans) nor would they help any of the ladies from the US figure out what cakes were offered. They were plain rude and sure left a bad impression with this group of travel specialists. Schade, wirklich schade! Last not least or reservation had not been honored either and we sure felt like a burden to the place.
