The cake here is great. Ignore the tired decor of the cafe as the service and cake are lovely. Try the Milchkaffee - really good.

We were doing a black forest gateau survey in Gengenbach (you have to don't you!) and we decided that the best was here. Staff welcoming and an inside and outside seating area. Good value too.

We didn't have cake at the Café Birnbraeuer (although it looked very good!), but the hot chocolate was one of the best I've ever tasted. The furniture is a bit old-fashioned, but that shouldn't put off young people from visiting the café. The service was...More

We found this lovely cafe on a walk through the 'old town' of Gengenbach. You walk in, choose your cake or torte from the display case of various goodies, then walk upstairs to sit down at a table. The tortes were awesome, not too sweet...More
