Great coffee with freshly home made pastry. Lovely stylish interior design. Hot cocoa was yummy too!

This is just a small booth in front of the Goethe Galerie. The main location of Carlos P is over by the bus station (cut-through from Grietgasse), and it has a larger selection and small café, but this is a convenient, central place to buy freshly-baked bread and pastries.

Carlos P (really: Knut) is a German master baker who likes to travel. Rather than the same old five or 10 items available at every German bakery, Carlos P also sells international classics - focaccia, brioche, French tarts, American brownies... Everything is baked fresh every day. There is also a focus on doing things the traditional way - nothing artificial, no stabilizers, etc.

I don't know how many dozens of times I've purchased goodies from Carlos P and each and every one of them has been outstanding. My favorites are the Toscana loaf, with Italian herbs, or the San Francisco sourdough (apparently Jena has a microclimate similar to San Francisco's, and the Carlos P loaf is to die for). In terms of sweets, my favorite is the lemon meringue tart.

If you're in town, don't hesitate to stop by the little booth or at the main Carlos P location. You won't be disappointed.

It is quite hard to find a place in Germany where you can get a freshly baked, flakey, buttery and delicious warm Croissant. (Normally they a frozen, warmed up and dry)

At this place you will find original french baking and pastry products like in Paris. Croissants, Brioche, Tartelettes, Flute, Pain au Chocolat, you name it, they have it all.

It does not happen often that I give five points but this place really derserves it!
