As far as the bakery is concerned, everything is fine: a lot of cakes, cookies and pastries along with hot beverages at really low prices.The Printen, instead, which are ginger-bread chocolate typical cookies are, in my opinion, overpriced, as it usually is when it comes to tourist attractions.

What an amazing place this is!!! During our family stay in Aachen we had breakfast here every morning. Great variety of sandwiches and quality coffee, the bread is freshly baked and all ingredients are fresh and beautifully presented. The staff were very friendly and helpful even if they didn't speak English a lot. But the cakes.... so good, they melt... More

Nobis Backwaren & Printen Cafe is ideally located on the Münsterplatz 3, right beside the Aachen Cathedral (in German: Aachener Dom). It's brightly lit and you can't miss it, nor should you 'cause otherwise you'll miss some of the best cakes and sweet stuff in Aachen. For the first time in a long time, I was unable to choose something... More

Very busy little shop. Great location on the square. Service was fast and friendly. Bread was fresh and the fillings very tasty. Just what we wanted :)

We are usually skeptical of the "hype" and distrust places that everyone says are the best... but we tried a lot of printen in Aachen, and this really was our favorite. The window displays are also amazing.

Went to this place several times for breakfast, lunch and takeaways. Superb food and very well priced. Would continue to visit. Most of the servers are very helpful - only noticed 1 lady who didn't crack her face when serving.

Visited whilst at the AAchen christmas market. There are two stores in the town, the one nearest the Dom being the largest. Lots and lots of biscuit and chocolate treats on display and for sale nearly too much to choose from. They also offer free samples to taste. Once you've tried youre sure to buy. Prices quite reasonable

Very close to the Cathedral/ Dom/Market. Sat upstairs to eat breakfast. After some dithering breakfast was ordered. I couldn't believe my eyes when it came out all freshly cooked to order scrambled eggs with assorted freshly baked breads, cheeses,assorted fresh sliced salami,marmalade and proper butter, Very Scrumptious! We ordered medium size meals but it nearly had us beaten . Lovely... More

I have never had Printen, but the ones I had here were excellent. However, there are really too many types to make choosing easy so i bought a few and decided I would return once they are eaten. Definitely a place to visit if you are in Aachen.
