Beatifully located opposite the Thomaskirche. The food is substandard. Wiener schnitzel 50g meat and 50g crust overcooked. Pfifferlingen Salad under 300g. Waitress wanted to return 11 from 50 euro only after asking.

Outstanding place with great history. Owner Matthias is almost every day present. Excellent kitchen and perfect, distinguished service. Head waiter Sebastian is an absolute asset to this restaurant and bar.

Had lunch, service was not great and the food had no taste. Also they covered it with cheese that made it a meal to forget. Even the knife made noice like it was going trough rubber.

Joined friends here for a light lunch outside. Great location by the Thomas Kirche and Bach statue, but food was nothing special and the service was sporadic

Nur 1 Stern für das äußerst unfreundliche Personal. Wenn der Service in einer Gastronomie schlecht ist, gibt es für mich keinen Grund, dort auch nur einen Cent auszugeben. The service is a way too long and extremly unfriendly. If you don´t want to ruin your...More

I've been here a number of time before heading into the Thomaskirche for a concert. It's a jolly good place, genuine, with lots of local customers, and I have always enjoyed the cakes I have eaten there. Recommended!
