Just had to try the traditional Printens which the Aachen region is known for. We sampled some in Monschau and other small towns but read that Nobis in Aachen made the best. Can only rate the Printens at this bakery as this is all we purchased. We bought several tins with assorted toppings, nuts, chocolate etc. These are priced per... More

I didn't eat in there, I just got some food to take away, and I can tell you, it was delicious. I went to get a dessert the first night I was in Aachen and I went back for more the next morning. It's really tasty, they have some German delights I never tried before, and it's not expensive. I... More

As far as the bakery is concerned, everything is fine: a lot of cakes, cookies and pastries along with hot beverages at really low prices.The Printen, instead, which are ginger-bread chocolate typical cookies are, in my opinion, overpriced, as it usually is when it comes to tourist attractions.

What an amazing place this is!!! During our family stay in Aachen we had breakfast here every morning. Great variety of sandwiches and quality coffee, the bread is freshly baked and all ingredients are fresh and beautifully presented. The staff were very friendly and helpful even if they didn't speak English a lot. But the cakes.... so good, they melt... More

Nobis Backwaren & Printen Cafe is ideally located on the Münsterplatz 3, right beside the Aachen Cathedral (in German: Aachener Dom). It's brightly lit and you can't miss it, nor should you 'cause otherwise you'll miss some of the best cakes and sweet stuff in Aachen. For the first time in a long time, I was unable to choose something... More

We are usually skeptical of the "hype" and distrust places that everyone says are the best... but we tried a lot of printen in Aachen, and this really was our favorite. The window displays are also amazing.

Went to this place several times for breakfast, lunch and takeaways. Superb food and very well priced. Would continue to visit. Most of the servers are very helpful - only noticed 1 lady who didn't crack her face when serving.
