Advertise as open but nothing going on. No food, nothing ! Do not waste your time to drive there. Why advertise and waste people's time to go there ?

On our way to the Drankenberg area we took a break at this nice cafe. We took our lunch at the terrace with a great view. The food was lovely. Nice staff. Great stopover.

HELP - it is 'closed for renovations' but it looks as it is closed for good. No activities during 'renovations' on a Friday. Rather sad as we had it in good memories.

Small cafe near the Little Switzerland Hotel. We had coffee and cake which was well priced and very good. The butternut soup is also very tasty!
