“you can always go there (breakfast/lunch/light dinner)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2013

I know Cafe Karin and have been there several times but this time for a good and nice breakfast and indeed it was a very nice breakfast. We ordered eggs, tea, the "Ostend" and something else (forgot the name), a bircher müsli and the banana yoghurt. The yoghurt and the müsli were surprisingly good and tasty. Service is quick and friendly, prices are fair. The place is big, you have indoor and outdoor seating. The location is perfect, right at Hauptwache. I can totally recommend it for actually everything: breakfast, lunch, light dinner or just a cup of coffee/tea with friends.

“DON'T MISS CAFE KARIN”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2013

Definitely worth visiting. It's usually full, but there's always someone leaving, so no long wait times. Breakfast menu is in German and English. Lunch menu is hand written in German, but a friendly waitress gently offered to translate it if we wanted to have lunch. Anything you ask is delicious, great portions and fair prices. They have salads, eggs, sandwiches, fresh juices - the banana juice is unmissable. I'm sure you'll want to come here more than once!

I love the Cafe Karin, specially for breakfast during weekends.
Always nice atmosphere, but also usually full...

“Modern German cafe at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2012

This cafe is a Frankfurt institution. it offers great food, all fairly traditional but with a modern and healthy twist. The food and coffee are great. At peak times, it can be difficult to find a seat and service can then also run a bit slow, but otherwise the service is efficient, friendly and informal. Kids are very welcome here. I can hardly think of a better place in central Frankfurt for a good breakfast or a light lunch.

“Nothing beats a "all day breakfast"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2012

Well, Saturday morning at Cafe Karin was quite an experience. The place was packed with people and we soon knew why. Their breakfast is very nice (even though the rolls could have been a bit fresher), the cafe itself has the little something that makes it special and the service staff was very friendly. Would definitely have breakfast there again :)
