We were there on Sunday afternoon. It was crowd, need to wait for seating. Not cheap to have just coffee and Ice-cream. If you like India feel you can try the Curry Banana Ice-cream.

We have eaten in Riffelmacher before, but it is not our favorite Cafe in Bamberg. The pastries are well above average if not outstanding. The cafe is always crowded with tourists, even in the off season. I suppose it is on the street most travelled...More

This cafe is in a good location near the Old Town Hall. It looks appealing and serves decent cakes and (in the summer ice cream). However, the place is extremely busy and noisy. The seating near the cake display is uncomfortable because so many people...More
