Café Bauturm – Cakes, coffee & klatsch

On a Sunday morning for a long and late breakfast (which is, by the way, served the whole day) or Thursday evening for a quick drink: the Cafe Bauturm is always my first choice.

The cakes served are just delicious and there are different ones every day of the week. If the hunger is bigger, try one of the burgers. The veggie burger is the best! But I would also go for a Quiche with fresh salad or a simple tomato soup.

The huge candelabrum, made of shards from old bottles and hanging from the ceiling, always impress me when I enter the café and give me a feeling of regalness.

For those of you who are interested in arts, there is the Bauturm Theatre that shows good productions.

The room in the back with the bookshelves in it is my favourite (even if they are not filled with real books but only with dummies). Sitting there on the red comfy bench with a cup of tea in my hand is just great. Having a good friend sitting next to me who tells me the latest gossip makes it perfect ;-).

Can’t find a place to sit? The Café Schmitz next door is also a good choice!
