There was a lot of positive reviews so I went over. I found it very average. The staff was okay, but they just missed a few things. Like they didn't have ice cubes for drinks and the waitress was.. well.. not impolite, but very unapologetic...More

We were four friends, in Bonn to see the Cherry blossom,s who just happened to be thirsty. When we were here we all wanted something different. Service was great. Drinks were hot and tasty, with even lactose-free options. We all left refreshed and happy.

This place really is lovely. The breakfast is delicious and the chicken burger, made with two thin slices of chicken breast and a toasted bun, is arguably one of the best I've had. What truly sets this place apart though, are the cakes. Freshly made...More
