You would not think that this restaurant is situated in the main railway station. The staff are very friendly and the food is highly recommended. I had the "English Breakfast" and it would put some of our cafe's to shame!! Just what I needed on the way to a football match. I then had the schnitzel with cream of mushroom sauce and couldn't finish it... there was that much!! All said, the price is very reasonable and I would recommend the restaurant to anyone visiting Dusseldorf

I would normally avoid anywhere abroad that says English Breakfast served but on the back of a heavy weekend in Dusseldorf/Dortmund and with a couple of hours to spare we thought we would give it a go. Well am i glad we did . The breakfast was superb and was an English/German crossover: Lovely fried potatoes and Bratwurst sausages really made it. Staff were really pleasant and efficient as they always are in my favourite country!

So don't bother with the fast food places try here.

We went here for the beer so can't comment on the food - beer was fresh with the Düsseldorf system of small glass mark your coasters

As others have noted, this is far more than just a station café. Yes, it's on the concourse amid fast food joints but it's certainly a cut above the rest.

The schnitzel was much better than I'd imagined it would be, with the usual trimmings, the service was speedy yet not rushed, and the overall experience was surprisingly good. Couple that with reasonable prices and you're onto a winner. It's not be confused with Im Schiffchen, the upmarket 2-star (over-hyped) place, but it is very very decent.

If you've got a hankering for something quick and easy, yet don't fancy a baguette or bretzel, do pop in. You won't be disappointed.

Found this place on TripAdvisor and as we were staying in the ibis city, behind the station, decided to give it a go.

The altbier was yummy! The currywurst was fresh and a good sized portion. My other half had a half chicken and chips which were also nice.

Ambiance really nice too, and staff friendly.

Try it :)
