We went there to see if we could find a better breakfast than our hotel. It was both a little better and also a little more expensive. Overall it was a good experience. There was friendly service. The atmosphere though, a little stale.

You are on the square so should expect usual fare as a tourist stop. was what wa expected. Had Schwineldchen. Was good (not best we have had) and hoped for spaetzle was more machine made. Very convenient and not bad.

It's a great location and very charming. It's a tourist spot and I guess they just don't care anymore. Service was super slow. I had pork chop with sauerkraut which was good, not great. My cucumber feta salad was great.

We have breakfast at this restaurant on our last day in Rothenburg ob der tauber. It's raining and a little cold so we order hot drink and cake. It's very good taste. Inside restaurant is very nice decoration. Staff is very good Service.
