German pastries and coffee at its best, great for an afternoon coffee or just anytime you feel like having something sweet. Very famous amongst locals.

We bought some confections from this famous bakery for a celebration, and we were not disappointed! We opted for their unique creation, the Georgia Augusta torte, and their special version of the Baumkuchen. And we shared a plum torte on the walk back the car. Everything was delicious. The cakes are not inexpensive, but I did not think the prices... More

Every time we go home to Germany to visit our family Cron & Lanz is one of our obligatory stops. The pastries are to die for, made on site, delicious, with an extraordinary diversity, and fairly priced. It is a busy place, with ample seating upstairs that can get crowded on weekends and holidays, or just abut any day! Service... More

If you love traditional German baking at its ethereal best then Cron und Lanz is very hard to surpass. The cake display is a feast for the eyes and when it comes to selection indecision is totally understandable. Since fresh raspberries were in season it was not a hard choice and came down to the Himbeeren Torte. The plum torte... More

C&L is a perfect place for ancient homemade torte, handmade pralines, chocolate and coffee house atmosphere. It doesn't matter if you sit outside in the pedestrian zone in front of C&L, at the 2nd floor or on the patio for breakfast, brunch, torte or pralines along with coffee specialities, tea or my favorite Vienna Melange and Bohemian Plums.

Ok, so it's a hangout for elderly couples and ladies who lunch, but for a bit of old school grandeur and nice crockery, you can't beat it. Cake was tasty, and I didn't find the portion small as other reviewers seem to have found. Service was efficient and formal, but not rude. Wish I'd had time to go back and... More

Located in the heart of the high street of Göttingen (Weender Straße) this is quite a traditional place for cakes and some candies. Not all cakes displayed on the menu are available (which happens when things are prepared freshly, of course), still variety is quite good. Taste is average, however, and unfortunately sizes are really, really small. So more of... More

Candy store inside is quite ok, however cakes prices differ from what is stated on the labels. Outside cafe waiter denied ordering the cakes, requesting to come inside and brought cold coffee. Outrageous. Avoid.

When you walk into this café, the charme of oldern days hits you straight away with a smell of old citizen's home. And the waitresses have the charme of Nazi-Deutschland. My girlfriend and I had a coffee and cake (which both lack excellency for the price you have to pay for it) at this place and when we were done,... More
