We took a day tour to Dresden from Prague. After a short walking tour, we had about 5 hours to spend on our own in the city. We decided to stick relatively close to the area close to the river and knew we wanted to visit the Zwinger gallery. Prior to our gallery visit, we stopped at Central Café for... More

We had a nice Sunday brunch. There was a broad selection of food, but the brunch was a bit pricey. The service and food was very good.

I really like the location of this place, right on the square, with lots of people hustling about. The sofas outside are really comfortable and you can sit for ages in them, simply having a drink or enjoying a meal. The menu is also available in English which is great as many of the menus in Germany I found, tend... More

I had a lovely breakfast here. Nice food and great very attentive staff. Nice outside area which is brilliant when the weather is good.

We were looking for a place with an English menu but offering traditional German food- this only had the first half. They did however offer some good food that was unusual (beetroot soup was lovely, the cranberry-quark cheesecake less so.) If you feel like experimenting this could just be what you want.

During our two-day stay in Dresden, we found the Central was a really good choice for lunch. "Mittagstisch" (different every week) were good and fresh for only 6-7€ and Quarkkeulchen (local dessert) were delicious. Atmosphere was much more relaxed and quiet than in the nearby Alex we had unfortunately discovered the day before.

Yes, we were lucky because we ordered few dishes: pumpkin soup, penne with salmon, spaghetti and some salad. Waiter forgot about spaghetti, so we were lucky, because was no need to taste one more awful dish. As I wrote: waiter forgot, but we didn't hear even any "excuse me". To be honest: not all was so bad: beer and bread... More

One would think that when only a few tables are active (mid-afternoon) it wouldn't be all that hard to get maybe average service. But not here. After being told to sit wherever we liked it took three tries to get a server for a small drink order. There were enough of them around but nobody seemed to want to be... More

The wait staff speaks enough English to get by. They have an English menu. I had a bowl of soup that was out of this world. If you go, try the Leffe Brune beer.

On a rainy afternoon this fall we went into the city aiming to do some quick shopping. This was done more successful than estimated and led us to the Cafe-Central right in the centre at the Altmarkt. This nice Cafe offered friendly service, a variety of cakes and coffee as well as hot schokolade. Within seconds we felt relaxed and... More
