Have popped in here a few times for a bite to eat, great Nuremberger sausages, or a coffee and cake and have always found the staff very friendly and welcoming. Minutes from the Dom and Station but not a tourist trap and to me captures...More

Visited this with recommendation from a tourist centre around the corner (safe to say I asked them nothing else after going here!). What started off as being a very quaint little restaurant quickly descended into something Gordon Ramsey probably should have been filming in the...More

I ate lunch here, and found both service and food appealing. The cuisine is traditional German - lots of Wurst etc - but with a few other options for the vegetarian or non-carnivore. Good value overall.

A nice find close to the cathedral & train station in an area dominated by fast food joints. Pleasant ambience with simply cooked food & enticing pastries. No canned background music -- just a canary in a cage!
