We visited here a while back and it was ok. We were in the area and went again. We sat and watched people who came after us being served. Finally I got up and approached a waitress for a menu. Rudest girl I have experienced....A big eye roll and grabbed menus, left me standing,went to our table and actually tossed the menus at my wife. We left immediately and I am annoyed with myself for not speaking to a Manager first. That girl should try another employment option...More

We were treated badly by a male server on our second visit to Restaurant Im Literaturhaus on Whitsun Monday. He was unfriendly and practically threw the menus on the table. Tea took over 30 mins to arrive - long after cake was finished (and we...had already reminded him once). When it did finally come he seemed surprised that we no longer wanted it. No apology or acknowledgment. Neither of us could believe his attitude. And such a shame because on our first visit there, on Saturday for breakfast, was very enjoyable with a great welcome from a different team - which is why we went back there before leaving for home.More

We'd just arrived in Nuremberg and were hungry so stopped at this busy pavement cafe for a snack. We had two 0.5l beers, I had a vegetarian baguette and my partner had a baguette with salmon. Food was fresh and nice. The bill - an...eye watering £42 (€47.90) According to the menu should have been under half that. Very upsetting and to be honest spoilt the first day. Wouldn't return.More

Thank you for your information. We are very sorry that our service staff took too much money from you. She still had the bills for the guests who were there before you in the system, so the bill was too high. Please go to the...More

We went here for breakfast, which was good. However, do beware that when sitting outside with back to the road that vehicles can pass very close to your seat, which is a bit disconcerting!

Very friendly staff, nice atmosphere. Food is good, but nothing special. Prices are normal for the city. Overall experience was good enough that we wanted to go back there for breakfast.

The staff was very friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit! We only had breakfast but the food was excellent! Highly recommended for a casual but delightful experience.

Excellent cuisine is paired with literaric atmosphere and affordable prices. The menu offers a wide range from breakfast to dinner, veggie and non-alcoholic beverages included. Service is fast and attentive. Will be one of my favorites in Nuremberg!

This place has a variety of food options from traditional Franconian to curry dishes to vegetarian and vegan options. Their breakfast looks amazing. I came in for dinner. As a solo traveler, it was a very welcoming environment with 1/3 of the table being individuals...enjoying a book. I typically take the waiter's suggestions and he suggested the Viennnoise schnitzel. They offer full and small portion sizes.More

Hello, when you posted your review on Tripadvisor, I was on vacation. After my return, Corona came to Nuremberg. That is why I can only say a very warm thank you for your friendly review today.

Serving from breakfast to dinner. A buzzling place with great selection. We had a delicious dinner. The beef stew pot is highly recommended. The apple pie pastry is a bit thick though and would be nice if it is warm.
