As it is very famous, so you can expect how many visitors come for you. I was here for coffee time, and it was very crowded. The coffee is fine, but sadly I didn't take any dessert there because of the long queue. But I have to say, they need more staffs for service, we waited for ages for 2... More

OMG!! Stop for cake and tea - so many beautiful pastries to choose from and none have disappointed. It really is like a traditional tea room but a lot more to offer.

The cafe is fancy shmancy. The cakes are exquisite. The Black Forest cake was good but I expected more. Had a crust cookie on the bottom which I found unfaithful to the recipe. The chocolate cream was superb but the white cream was either tainted with some flavor or off. Since I doubt it was off the flavoring was peculiar.... More

They say when you come to the Black Forest you must try the original Black Forest cake. In the town of Baden Baden lies an institution that is legendary in their cakes and pastries. Next to Cafe Koenig is their Patisserie where you will be surrounded by their delicious chocolates, sweets, macarons, cakes n pastries. You can choose to take... More

You can't come to Baden Baden and not come to this magnificent cafe. Dripping with style and history and smothered with fabulous pastries and delicacies. A sumptuous experience for the eyes and taste buds. Highly recmmended.

I had high expectations going here, but the desserts were just okay. It wasn't anything special to us. It was pretty expensive as well.

Lovely, cozy cafe. Amazing service and excellent food (stinky Brie - always a good sign). Wait staff is tourist-friendly and speaks English but not a tourist trap or overly filled with tourists. No reservations needed and just find your own table. Entire "grosses fruhstuck" for ~€15. Highly recommended.

Thank foofurman
