Since 1995, Café Metropol follows a simple principle: it doesn’t matter whether the food is Mediterranean, German, Indian or Italian, as long as it is home-made and tasty! Not only are their food and cakes home-made and delicious, their menu is also still handwritten — and sometimes not easy to read. Luckily, if you visit for cake, you have to walk up to the counter and pick your piece, so you don’t even have to read the menu.
Café Metropol is a wonderful option if you plan to visit with more than 4-5 people: unlike most brunch and breakfast places in Frankfurt, it is very spacious yet cosy. During the winter months, you can still sit in the winter garden, which is bathed in light due to its southern orientation. Needless to say, it’s a wonderful place to enjoy warm evenings with wine on the terrace.
Little remark: make sure to carry enough cash money with you, since cash is still king at this place.
