Breakfast was good but nothing special. Very cheap though. The store itself looks very nice and has a big assortiment.

Hartlief took over ... Quality went under. Pity but the quality of the all the products went down so much. The prices up though. Not the place it was. I am sad about the change.

If you need cheese, you'd trust the French. If you need chocolate, the Swiss are convincing. For cold meat and sausages, there is no place like this one. Having changed ownership not that long ago, we hope that nothing except the name will change!

I have been a fan for many years. They have friendly staff, great german meat specialties. I usually go for lunch as opposed to buy food to bring home and have never been disappointed. The style is that you order from the counter and pay at the counter and then take your food to your seats. There are only a... More
