Had tons of coffees and cake, dinners, Christmas celebrations, at this place. It used to be a very nice trip out of the smoke in Berlin... Last few times though, the detour has unfortunately been a waste of time. Not sure what went wrong lately.........More

That is a cozy place on the one of the main streets, just in front of the tram stop. Nice service and atmosphere. My food didn't impress me a lot. But it might be due to 'traditional and healthy' tag, the food carried :)

Popped into the Cafe Heider on two occasions over 2 days whilst visiting Potsdam. The first occasion was for a coffee and snack (kuchen) and enjoyed the experience and atmosphere of this little restaurant enticing enough to make a return visit the following day. On...More
