This is the best place in Berchtesgaden, and possibly the world, to try top quality, delicious Bavarian food at a good price.
Following Trip Advisor advice, we headed to Cafe am Luitpoldpark on the third night of our stay in Berchtesgaden. It was easy to find, at the top of the path into town from the station and in a nice location near the park. We were a little nervous going in, it looked busy, but we were given such a warm welcome by Birgit, that we felt at ease at once, and were even given a choice of tables. Both Birgit and Linda (our very friendly waitress) spoke very good English and were tolerant of our attempts at German! Service was fast, efficient and cheerful and the atmosphere in the place very laid back and jovial. We decided to go back on our last night in the town too, it was so lovely there.
The menu was provided in English, which was helpful despite our basic German. And the food was delicious. I'm a veggie and was surprised to find more than one option. On the first night I had spinach dumplings with butter and rocket and on the next visit I had kasnocken, the local speciality. Both were yummy and the free salad buffet was a real bonus. My boyfriend had Wiener schnitzel one night and venison goulasch the next and loved both meals. They were so well presented it felt like we were in a much more expensive place, but the prices were reasonable too. The apple strudel was also fabulous, though we barely had room for it!
It was so good here, we found it hard to leave and stayed on drinking local beer and excellent coffee for several hours after we finished the food. It is one of our favourite memories of Berchtesgaden and we'll definitely be back next time we visit.
A huge thank you to Birgit and Linda for such friendly service!
