Breakfast really was good and the server did her best in English to take care of us. Coffee and tea was great and I would definitely recommend.

Very large cafe, with a long menu for food drinks and pastries. There is even a list of magazines you can read there. We had specially coffees with gugelhupf and topfenstrudel. Both were good.
