Cafe Liebfrauenberg Frankfurt am Main Reviews
Dec 31, 2006
One of the enduring traditional elements of German life is that of Kaffee und Kuchen - coffee and cakes. This is the chance to spend a leisurely afternoon break eating rather large slices of cake and sipping coffee with friends.
As this is a bit of an old fashioned custom the cafés that specialise in it are generally on the traditional side and tend to be full of pensioners.
Don't let that put you off however - Café Liebfrauenberg is one such place but is actually one of the best places in Frankfurt to get breakfast, a daytime snack, a quick drink or even a decent sized meal.
They have a vast, very reasonably priced menu, stuffed with snacks to suit all tastes, much of it very helpfully translated into English for the non German speakers. No German café is complete without a range of wines and beers to go along with your food plus they also have a separate menu just for ice cream which is almost as extensive as its counterparts.
Inside it's richly decorated and has an air of being out of time - like something from the 1930s. The big selling point in the summer however has to be the large outside seating area which takes up most of the square in which it’s situated. Here you can sit and watch the world go by as you tuck into their delicious offerings.
Café Liebfrau's obvious qualities mean that it's always pretty busy (but not so much that you can't get a table) but this gives it a bustling atmosphere.
Oh - and if cakes are your thing then you won’t be disappointed - you can choose from the vast array on display at the cake counter and receive a plate piled high with your choice.
