Closest thing to homemade light French desserts anywhere around. Chococroissants are excellent, as is the coffee. We are frequent flyers. :)

The place is small and the decoration is below average for a Patisserie. It has a rustic style, which is not a problem at all, but could be better decorated and give a cosier atmosphere. The service was terrible, they were more interested in being...More

This place made me realize that I did not know what a croissant is. Now I know that everywhere else the croissants are not real. Their pastry and sweets are simply a revelation. The reason is that they do everything, yes: everything, by hand and...More

Good croissants, but you should pay more if you want to eat it inside. Average coffee, the water was served in dirty glasses with lots of fingerprints...

Hi Allkofiallko, whenever you eat something in the cafe or place it is more expensive than to take away. That depends on the tax (7 or 19%) and the effort. Kind regards

This place will seriously knock your socks off. After trying croissants and pastries all over Europe, I have to say this is the best. The croissants are buttery, flaky and amazingly melt in your mouth. The Kugelhopf are lightly sweet, but not overly so. The...More

Not so obvious from outside. But once you are inside, this is Patisserie heaven. Small tartelettes or macarons- it is all delicious!! Small and cosy seating area- don't miss this if you have a sweet tooth and happen to be in Karlsruhe
