Never really been very fussed about Alex as a chain but in Paderborn it was much better than I am used to. We ordered very quickly after sitting down and got the food rather quickly despite the restaurant being full to the brim. My German is very basic but staff were very helpful.

Great little breakfast buffet for 8 euro I believe. Varied and extensive choice. Good value too! Great atmosphere here. It was hot so all glass walls where open. Multi lingual friendly and helpful staff! I will definitely be back!!

Bruschetta and a Salad with chicken breast. The food was well presented and tasted great....staff checked on their guests asking if everything was okay and if they wanted anything else...... More

We use Alex quite a bit for breakfast buffets, which are super. This time we decided to eat here for my child's birthday, post bowling. Staff were super helpful and booked us a lovely table. Our bowling ran over but despite it being a busy, early Sat pm they were fine. Really made a fuss of my daughter and let... More

After having seen a film in the afternoon or evening the small group of people that I meet go to Alex for a drink and perhaps something to eat. The staff are always helpful and friendly, and thought of Alex mainly in this manner. That was until I had to go early to Paderborn with my wife for a doctors... More

We use Alex quite a lot but the breakfast buffet is really nice and a great selection of hot and cold choices. From the usual continental meats and cheeses to scrambled eggs, bacon, fried potatoes etc. Highly recommend you book though as its so busy!

I used to live near Paderborn and have often eaten here. Whenever I'm back, I usually end up coming to the Alex at least once. I love the freshly prepared and tasty food, and especially the fact that they have so many vegetarian options. What I like best is the abundant breakfast buffet. A little drawback: The service, although friendly... More

Visited with friends, the menu was ok but personally would have preferred more choices. The food arrived reasonably quickly and was ok. Can't complain but wouldn't rave about it either. Might visit again if I happened to be in the area but wouldn't rush back for a meal.
