Relaxing not rushed but if you have children better stick to the bakery section as faster service. Food average but beautiful interior decor

A beautiful restaurant (hence it's crowded with tourists) with great selection of cakes, and I was in such a dilemma staring at them and don't know which to choose from as all of them look irresistible. They taste good too but I am not such a big fan of the poppy seed cake.

Lovely surroundings but average food, quite expensive. Staff not at all friendly and even had the cheek to say we had not left enough tip! She was lucky she got anything. Dessert ordered had run out and was bought something different without asking, just put on the table. Probably think we are just tourists so not to bother but we... More

This café konditorei/restaurant is housed in a magnificent baroque building. It offers the kind of café experience that is only available in UK at 5* plus prices while here its available to all. Large selection of cakes and gateaux plus full meals served in elegant surroundings on Meißen crockery. I go every time I am in Dresden.

I went there with bunch of classmates and also my German teacher. It was a wonderful place for a little relaxing and chatting. The view is great as well.

An old historic house which, at first glance, looks like it's just a place to stop for coffee and cakes, but they also have two large dining rooms and a very extensive menu. There were 6 of us and we were glad that we'd booked as it got quite busy. The food was excellent (gluten free was available, which was... More

On a walking tour through Dresden, which really is amazing to see considering that most of the old town is reconstructed, time for lunch had us near to the Coselpalais; so, with a group of friends we ventured in. The Cafe has a good lunch menu and the food was of a high standard as was the service. In summary,... More

Either if you fancy a typical Germán coffee break with cake or if you come for lunch, you will enjoy the warm atmosphere of this historical place. Food is great, service is good and the atmosphere makes the difference.

The yellow building on the Neumarkt is the Coselpalais that today houses some of Dresden's finest restaurants. Built by the rulers at the end of the 18th century, it was ravaged by war like the rest of the buildings in this square. The restaurants are fairly high class and it provides a good view of the Neumarkt square as well... More
