It’s a lovely café in the city center, very well bedecked with small paintings and beautiful lamps. The colour of the light cast by the latter keeps up with that of the curtains - both window and inner ones -, the table cloths and the walls thus forming altogether a harmonious ensemble. There one can have a hot drink mainly... More

Great stop for coffee and cake. Busy traditional coffee shop in the centre of Baden-Baden, great for resting your feet.

Wow ! The pastries are heavenly. This bakery won the Best in Germany award and this is confirmed at the first bite. We got éclairs, spice breads etc ... obviously a bit pricy but definitely worth it. In fact, on the next visit to Baden Baden, we would have breakfast at the Konig rather than at the hotel.

My daughter and I were on a day trip to Baden Baden and this supposedly iconic coffee shop was recommended by the tourist information centre. As it was my birthday, we tried to get in for lunch, only two of us and we were standing obviously waiting for a table. The incredibly rude staff didn't even acknowledge us, just pushed... More

If you are into cakes, cookies and other sweet things that's the place to go. Fabulous cakes and pastries. You'll have a very hard decision on what to choose to eat! Coffee and tea are served as well as some salty snacks. Service is flawless. Very nice place!

Had to have a piece of Black Forest and coffee while in Baden Baden. Now it was not as good as our land lady use to make, but it was delicious all the same. We did not find it too strong it was enjoyable without leaving one feeling full or heavy. Service was efficient although it was rather busy during... More

Cafe König is old world charm in the center of town. You walk in the front door past cakes and decadent pastries and head in the back for the charming tearoom. It's busy, popular and bustling. Everyone comes here! I had a delicious hot chocolate and their famous Schwarzwaldkirschtorte. The cake was delicious! I know why it's so famous! They... More

The quality of the cakes, drinks and chocolates is great. The ambiance is fine, could be nicer. It's a bit older, but not in the positive, old-world sense. The staff is friendly, but not overly so. The location couldn't be better - right at the beginning (or end) of town.
