Excellent food! Good service! They have a nice terrase oitside where you can enjoy the food and drink on a summer evening! The salad, the fish and the dessert are very good.

This large, popular restaurant offers breakfast, salads, pasta, and pizza. It is large, high ceilinged, spacious and cool. It's an ideal place to enjoy a comfort stop in the middle of a day's shopping, or to meet friends. The setting is relaxed and the staff friendly and efficient.

This was recommended by our friends in Bielefeld. The breakfast buffet was excellent with a nice relaxed atmosphere ! A great start to our day. I would recommend booking on weekends as every table was taken on the Saturday we visited.

On Sunday mornings it's packed. So word got around that this is a good place for brunch with family or friends. Selection of food is good, as is the quality. Service was good in spite of the challenge of a big crowd. If you come on Sunday mornings, make a reservation!

Carefully designed to bring you a great experience. You have to try the cheese cake, one of the best. Located in the center of Bielefeld.

I like the food but I find it a bit overpriced. It is not always easy to find a table for lunch if you don't have a reservation.
