“Hidden gem with great cakes”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

Wonderful little cafe next to the Liebighaus museum (sculptures). Excellent homemade cakes, good selection of snacks and a nice place to spend some time after the museum or a full day of shopping

“Don't miss this place, if..”
Reviewed 11 February 2014 via mobile

.. if you are in for a calm retreat within the city. Cafè im Liebighaus is resides in a lovely old mansion complete with a picturesque tower and an inner courtyard where seating isn't just possible but a must-do on finer days. They offer superb home baked cakes.

“Some of the best homemade cakes”
Reviewed 6 December 2010

I love the homemade cakes the Cafe im Liebighaus serves. I can specially recommend the chocolate buttermilk and the abruzzo cakes.You can either buy them to go or get a Lattte Macchiato and sit in the beautiful courtyard adjacent to the Museum of Sculpture and listen to the birds in the park. In the winter you can also sit inside - although this can feel a bit stuffy.

“A little gem of a corner cafe & cake shop!”
Reviewed 5 July 2010

If you are in need of some shade in this scorching heat, where you can still enjoy your sip of coffee and some homemade "Kuchen", this is the place to go. It must be one of the insider places in Frankfurt, but it seems to be well known by many as getting a table either inside or outside at any given time is a "pain". But well worth the waiting. As soon as you drink your "Latte Machiatto" with any one of the cakes you can get your hands on, you will be sent off to "heaven". All these cakes are home-made and you can taste this. I suppose they must have a cake fairy at their homes as they are just the yummiest cakes you can get your hands on. However, if you are looking for the typical sugar packed, creamy, and artificially enhanced tastes, this is not for you. You had better go somewhere else as the rest of us little "cake monsters" can enjoy more of those healthy, homemade, but finger licking cakes. They not only taste amazing, but you can see that they only use quality ingredients. You can tell yourself this "yin and yang" will balance each other out - and neutralise overall.
