Café König – Baden-Baden, Germany

Baden-Baden is a lovely German town a short drive away from France, and my family and I visited it on a regular basis since I am little. It is a great day-trip from Strasbourg! The town is very charming with its beautiful architecture, many shops and its famous concert hall. It also has a great modern art museum so you can easily spend a busy afternoon there. Now if you need a break between all the activities, Café König is where you want to stop!

A real institution in Baden-Baden, Café König is where the people go for tea, cake, to see and most importantly be seen! Indeed Baden-Baden is a very ‘bourgeois’ town and many people travel there to visit the beautiful hotels and the thermal baths.

When entering the tea room it can at first feel a bit chaotic. You won’t really be greeted by any smiles and the waitresses won’t help you find a table, you have to find one yourself. There is a certain distance the staff maintain at all time which can be intimidating. Just ignore it and grab a table the quickest possible as Café König gets really busy in the afternoon.

Once sat, a waitress will come to take your drink order. Teas, coffees, hot chocolates, just pick your favourite beverage to enjoy with the pièce de résistance: the cakes!

To order food, you will have to head to the shop section and chose a sweet treat.

It is the most difficult part of the process as all cakes and patisseries look delicious.

Last time I went we were 7, so we ordered a good selection of cakes to try!

  1. So dissappointed by the service in Cafe Konig.
    The pastry was not fresh and tastless, salty.
    The waitress was so ignorant with some attitude.
    I know what it is to earn the money: you must do your job NOT show your attitude and demonstrate your preferences.
    I have been waiting to be served 30 minutes.
    Ridiculous!
    The waste of my 7 euro is upsetting.
    But you know the best part? I will NEVER visit that cafe.

    1. Fair enough! Service is such an important part of the experience. I’m like you, it could absolutely prevent me from visiting again! That’s why I wanted to make sure to mention the attitude as it can be a real shock at first.
