A lovely quaint cafe which offered a lovely range of cakes....the Black Forest gateaux doesn’t disappoint and the other cakes we had were very tasty too! Worth the walk down the hill (and back up again!!)

The service here is incredibly poor - slow, unfriendly and you'll be lucky if you get grunted at, let alone anything better. Even when the cake was brought to us, they shoved the fork through it making it look like a 5 year old served...More

Do not miss Cafe Shcaefer if you are within 100 miles of Triberg. Their Black Forest cake is the definition of Black Forest cake.
