Their cakes are worth the visit alone but it's a bit crowded because it's very popular. In the summertime it's very cozy to sit outside underneath the cute little light bulbs.

I visited a few times since we moved to Frankfurt. During the weekends it takes a bit of time to get served, but they have really nice wine and cakes (the carrot cake!), so it is worth the waiting. Cozy atmosphere.

Maingold is at the eastern end of the Zeil. The style is relaxed but chic with a youngish crowd in their 30's. The food is excellent, fresh salads, some pasta dishes etc and it's a great place for couples or friends to get together.
