Reviewed 22 January 2012

Visited Monschau whilst visiting family nearby. After suffering a severe lack of fresh vegetables and fruit I needed some kind of culinary German experience to uplift the spirit. Yes, the bread in Germany is a far cry from the cotton wool we get in England. Its made of sterner stuff and seems to be grazed upon all day long in Germany, especially morning and evening. Great.. Beer (ice cold) , yes great. Potatoes (or should I say Bratkartoffeln) great. But what of tea and cakes I hear you cry? Where , what, how /? Well . not in nearby Hofen where we were exposed to what seemed like a giant brick landing on the plate and calling itself streusal.(although there are 6 flavours) Eat that with a large dose of the surrounding kitsch and you will be hankering after a simple teacake back home in Sainsburys. So, having been tipped off that Cafe Kaulard was the place to go, being a traditional family owned (for generations) business off we went. And there they are. Are they actually real these giant fairy like castles towering up into the clouds that we find in cafe Kaulard? Let me tell you very emphatically : yes they are. And let me tell you that they know. They know what they are doing . We had an eilikurkuchen . This is a nutty base enriiched with egg cocoa and liqueur, brushed I think with apricot jam and then topped with a kind of snowy creamy delight. The taste and the textures were subtle and just right. They all looked fantastic....and unusual . But this is not the norm in Deutschland! where so called coffee is dispensed out of machines and frankly is disgusting.( This isnt England so do not dare ask for tea in desperation) The accompanying latte in Cafe Kaulard...not what we are used to back home...came along disguised as a frothy beer and with the novel touch of a straw. but it tasted like coffee at least . We did not try the rest of the menu. but going on that experience alone rest assured that it will be wonderful. There are loads of cafes in touristy Monschau. But dont bother with the rest. If you want cake go to Cafe Kaulard. This guy knows his stuff , he and his father have been at it all their lives and they care about quality. You do not see these cakes in England so you must try. Really!
