The potato pancakes were real German style. Black forest plattter was nicely presented with all ingredients someone with German heritage was searching for. Yum yum

This is a takeaway/ cafe . If you choose to sit inside there is so much to see as the place is full of antique clocks , plates, mugs etc. I think some are for sale . Cake and coffee was ok . Service average, as the poor man serving us seemed busy and on his own but he was very polite. Worth going to if you feel like a cup of tea and a sit down .

great cakes and good coffee, my family and i were all happy with our choices even though my brother is really picky.
could be such a nice place, but unfortunately the décor inside is really awful- good thing they have outside tables :)

We stopped here for lunch, they had a great range of hot and cold food. We chose to sit in the restaurant in the air-con as it was so hot outside that day. We were blown away and fascinated by the number of clocks of all shapes and sizes on the walls in the restaurant. And mugs, plates and many other things that have been collected over the years - it gave us plenty to look at and talk about while we ate. Their deserts are divine too, I had to by a cherry and apple strudel piece and share it with my companions, it was yum!

Wow super tasty bratwurst and kuchen and pretzels will bring me back to this quirky little cafe again!
Yes, it did take some time to get all the components of our order, which arrived a little haphazardly, but the staff were friendly and everything was delivered as soon as it was ready. The interior is packed with german kitch and curiosities that will keep curious eyes occupied.

If you are in a hurry or expecting german punctuality this is probably not the best place to stop for a bite. However if you have some time, are hungering for some classic Hahndorf fare and are happy to kill some time in the quirky cafe, you are in for a treat!
