The original Black Forest Gateaux served here, and it is very good - delicate cake, good cherries and cream, and just enough alcohol bite. Shame the service is rather off hand, but then if I was serving the same cake every day to hordes of...More

On a morning when we didn't eat breakfast in our hotel, I ate a piece of Black Forest cake here at 10:15 AM. It was out and ready to be served - and tasted as good as I had imagined!

I was thrilled to stumble across the original Black Forest Cake which was all-the-rage in the 70s. There it was, the original. My expectations were so high. This original recipe had to exceed my Mom's cake, which was outstanding and without alcohol. My slice had...More

The hype is right. The Black Forest cake was the best we have ever tasted. We went there because of the reviews and were not disappointed.

Nice selection of regional cakes BUT the star of the show is the Black Forest Cake which is prepared using the original recipe (which is on site). It is an incredible delight for the palate. Highly recommend that a stop is mandatory!

Walked in and the lady looked at us funny. The lady gave us a stink eye when we just ordered the cake and nothing else. She got upset when I took out my water bottle and told us off. Pretty narrow minded mindset. The cafe's...More
