Located at Marktplatz, right in the centre of all the action, Cafe Michel has decent pastries (though certainly not the best in Wuerzburg) and the coffee is so-so. Prices are reasonable. Despite a Saturday late afternoon, the service was good. At that time, expect to wait for a table, though for us it only took 5 minutes. It's ok but... More

Cafe Michel was recommended to us by the ladies who run Hotel Wurzburg Hof as the best cafe/pastry shop in town. They are certainly correct. We tried two others, which were good, but this one serves large portions of scrumptious pastries and superb capuccinos. The cafe's siting on the Markplatz couldn't be better- you are on the main square of... More

After a day schlepping around Wurzberg, I needed resuscitating and no better way to do this than a beautiful apple schtudel with vanilla bean ice cream and a great cup of tea. Great service from a nice guy with red hair and a big bushy beard, and fantastic food..Can recommend

Heaven for those with a sweet tooth. There are so many types of cake to try. And great selection of drinks too. I tried the käsekuchen (plain) and a coffee with nutella (yep you read that correctly!). Delicious!

You can choose from about any beverages you would like coffee or iced chocolate, water or soda. You can choose any of their baked... More

It is a pity that the ratings only go as high as Excellent it seems inadequate for this place. The staff were fantastic making everyone that visited feel special, as though it were a special occasion for them and us mere customers. The Black Forest Gateaux knocks spots off the Trieberg original in our opinion. The Wurst was excellent, the... More

We had last visited the café in 2012 and remembered then that it had among the best cakes we had tasted anywhere. That feeling did not change when we came back to visit in November 2015. The only difference is that we ordered them to go. The cakes are delicious (better than the tarts)! A special favourite, the Weihnachtstorte which... More

The food is not bad, the place is beautiful and with a lot of history, but nothing special. The have got a lot of sweets and wraps for lunch or a break. But it is usually really crowded.

Nice atmosphere along with very friendly service. Sit outside and you can enjoy the world go by with a great view of the square. I imagine would be even nicer during the Christmas markets
