Stopped for something to drink during a quite hot sommer day at the late afternoon, we were very disappointed. The service was incredible slow and it was hard to get the attention of the staff. We saw also a number of other guests having the same problem. We didn't looked after the prices while ordering - which was a big... More

I visited Potsdam in October. On a beautiful autumn morning we went to the terrace to have breakfast. Although there were only a few tables occupied lasted 1 hour up to receive the order. Then when I asked for extra bread, it lasted more than 30 minutes until I got a bagel. It is a shame that the staff has... More

One of the first cafe from Sanssouci Park to city center is Babette near Brandenburger Tor. Only this can be the reason of your choice after long walk especially in rainy day. The place is not bad, but average with nothing special. Nevertheless, a number of locals inside can mean that it is not bad place.

We came here for breakfast, had to wait 1.5 hours for one of the standard offers in the menu. I asked for bread and had to wait an extra 20 minutes for one single bun. I repeatedly asked for explanations and I was told that this is not a fast food and they don't serve take away food. I got... More

We had a very pleasant lunch here, sitting inside on a showery day. A nice ambiance with classical music background. Menu only in German, and I got the impression that staff were not particularly orientated towards non German speaking customers, which may explain some comments about unwelcoming service. With my limited German I found the service perfectly OK. Food was... More

Concur with some of the past reviews. Good location only plus. Had deer meat, not freshly cooked, drenched in sauce. Pricey black coffee, a cup cost 4.10 euros, a big bottle of 750ml water was 5.90 euros. Try the ice cream next door though, 1 euro plus, good value.

This cafe has great location but poor food and worse value. The salad was tiny (for 11Eur) and not very good. A further dish had come directly from the freezer via the microwave. Avoid!

The cafe is quiet with a good atmosphere. The waiter was polite and did everything to make my visit and meal comfortable.

Nothing wrong with this eatery. Nice and pleasant. I had a spinach gratin which was okay, a bit watery, however. The service was adequate, not overly friendly, but efficient.

Food was ok (haddock one evening, pork the next), service was good and it's a great place to sit and watch the world go by round the Brandenburg gate. Not cheap but I don't think anywhere in Potsdam is of an evening. 3 stars feels a little mean but not quite 4.
