For those of you who travel Germany, you know how hard it is to find anything open on a Sunday. Near altstadt and oper alte, post modern cafe (think Danish moderne) styled place. Service excellent. Menu great, and food quality and portion is quite good. I went for a basic American eggs and bacon with potatoes and toast. Yummy. Oh,... More

Spent idle time prior to meeting based on recommendation from taxi driver. Nice local place, with solid german breakfast plates of various choice. Good wifi and good coffee.

The Café was very busy, but I was able to get a table. The service was excellent, the lady was with me right a way and she was ever so polite and friendly. The food also came very quick and was tasty. I experienced a lot a bad customer service in Germany, but here it's a complete different story. You... More

Once more Walden proves good quality of food served by friendly and caring service staff. Although fully crowded the atmosphere is nice and not uncomfortably loud. There are couples, singles, friends and families with small children. Everything goes well together.

Had read some good reviews on Walden and tried for coffee and some quick breakfast. The pancakes were ok, but the accompaniments were underwhelming: a spoonful of yoghurt and four small pieces of fruit. Decoration average and the sound system had a problem making the music annoying.

great place for lunch while visiting the Frankfurt area. Try the Udon noodles or even the cheese burger if you have a hankering for a good burger.

The staff were very welcoming and went out of their way to assist us. Breakfast was plentiful and served promptly. Recommend the Bircher Muesli and Fruit and the combination (make your own) of Eggs and Bacon served with two beautiful fresh bread rolls. Coffee was well made and earned a bonus in that they had alternative options like soy. Indoor... More

My girlfriend and I chose Walden a place to meet up because of the location. I was happy that we can sat outside in such a good weather. The waiter came fast and service was overall good. But the price that I paid for one cup cocoa and capuccino, we thought we ordered something which come with it, 1 small... More
