When you enter this little cafe /restaurant , you are transferred to a cafe on the Rhine in Germany before WWII ..., it's a lovely old fashioned place with wonderful German cakes like Apple strudel ..and all kinds of truly German cakes with freshly whipped Schlagsahne ( whipped creme ) . It's a welcomed treat to find this little oasis ...and except for the service ..which we manage to overcome by complaining to the cashier who seems to be the manager ....it's all good and a treat ! Good coffee ...good sandwiches ...recommending a visit into the old world charm that is Montevideo .

Coffee Shop, cakes, pastries, sanwiches & more. The best of town! In hands of the fourth generation of the same family! Sandwiches of many kinds, all made with house baked bread, delicious warm or cold, freshly baked cakes, old recipes, same excellent quality! The freshest ingredients, daily freshness, try strawberry & Chantilly cream cake, it melts in your mouth, sooo good! The Apple Strudel is a dream of a taste, a delicacy, the Black Forest Torte has nothing that even goes close to be compared! We were returning to Montevideo after a while and had this amazing tastes in our memories! Ok let me tell you in real life those tastes were better than in our memories. If you are lucky. Sara will be your server and recommend you or even bring you samples to try the out of this world sweet goodies! Highly recommended! Worth going! It is a big YES! When in Montevideo don't miss the Coffee Shop/Bakery "Oro del Rhin." Or "Rheingold" in German! Five well deserved stars!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️+

I always appreciate when a business lives up to its TripAdvisor reputation. Was looked after efficiently by waitress, but could have lingered longer if I had wanted. Wifi facilitates taking it easy and watching folks in the mall promenade by.

When in Montevideo, its style and class as well the delicious sweets and cakes with tea or coffee or at any time of the dayor a veer or a drink in this peculiar athmosphere are a quite unique experience with a touch of nostalgia.

This place felt very special and completely different from the meat and bread types of places we had frequented previously - they were happy to serve the kids what they requested (ham and cheese sandwiches!), and although we felt that maybe it wasn't really the place for kids (5yrs and 4yrs), we had a really lovely lunch and the waiter was very attentive to us and the kids
