It’s a very good cafeteria which reminds a little those which used to be common in Europe at the beginning and in the middle of the last century. Unfortunately they are nowadays rather scant, particularly in big cities. One finds himself very comfortable there. There is no music and usually the people inside talk quietly in a civilized manner. Besides,... More

Fantastic pastries and treats await you at Cafe Vetter. Not the place if you are in a rush for coffee and a sweet. Great for a leisurely coffee and dessert and excellent people watching. Classic in every way, from the decor to the food. Well worth the stop.

Very pleasant place with an old classic interior, feels like the place has stopped in time. There is a terrace with a view on a part of Marburg. The coffee and cakes were good.

A bit old fashioned place on good and bad. With a great view over a part of Marburg. You chose your tart and find a place with you little note to give to the waiter. They then know which piece of tart you ordered. Lots of choice and very tasty.

People were raving about this dated looking cafe esp. about its views overlooking Marburg. We came for coffee with a group of friends. Service was really slow. Ordered the blackforest cake and it wasn't tasting as what I expected it to taste like, mostly cream on biscuit. I had better blackforest cake elsewhere in Germany. If you have time to... More

Best for cakes... A lot of cakes, old recipes. Lovely view to the city... From the über stated. Art deco style, super delicious breakfast! English and German speaking also in menu. But careful with the beverages, not fresh and only dairy, non lactose free, not soy milk... So I kept with tea. Still loving the place, found in XIX century.

You haven't been to Marburg if you haven't been to the castle in town and Cafe Vetter. It is a Marburg institution, making and serving delectable cakes and coffee for about one hundred years. There is plenty of seating but if you are set on a window seat with its incredible view of the town, you may have to wait... More

We had gelato, coffee and a nice sunbath on the terrace of this really old cafe. The kids just loved it as there were so many colourful sweets to explore. The terrace is beautiful, full of sun, just under the cathedral, so you can enjoy the surroundings and the old city.
