“Boozy cake!”
Review of Cafe Schaefer

Reviewed 9 February 2018

After a lovely drive through the Black Forest area, we decided to check out the cafe famously known for its original Black Forest cake. The cafe was not busy when we were there. The lady who took our order was alright I guess -- (you order and it is brought to a table of your choice and you pay before you leave). We ordered tea, coffee and two slices of the black forest. . You could smell the alcohol fumes coming off the cake -- so we tucked right in. The cake was nice, a whole lot of cream with a crispy bottom layer. Even the chocolate cherries were steeped in alcohol. While it was pretty nice, I would not say it was the best we've ever had. However, as we were there in Winter with snow all around us, being in the cafe with our hot drinks and boozy cake, it seemed just right.

We didn't try anything else, paid up and left.

For us, it was nice to be in the Black Forest area and we could not be here and not come try this cafe.

If you are in this general location, give the cafe/cake a try. For us, it was a 'been there, done that' type of visit.

We had an amazing black forest cake in downtown Stuttgart with the right amounts of everything, so better is out there. Just saying..

If you are looking for great black forest cake, come here! This cake is to die for! Others in our group tried other cake types, and they were all very impressive, but by far the black forest cake was the greatest.

When I said best, I mean in comparison with another nearby cafe which I shouldn’t mention here. Every layer of the cake and even the cream are filled with the alcohol aroma ( I don’t know what kind of alcoholic drink were used in making Black Forest cake) without the cake being over moist. The bottom layer pastry is crispy.
Compare to the other cafe Black Forest cake which has too thick cream and the alcohol is too mild.

Fantastic Black Forest gateaux. Service was a bit slow in the cafe which was not busy, but can't fault the cake.
