Expensive pasta. Just particles of chicken on it, it wasn't home made pasta, just a few champignons and one small tomato. At the end they give us a wrong detail about the amount of money, and we realized it later. I paid for home made...More

Visit quite a few times because it is close and cosy. If you just want a drink - great. You have to be lucky to get a comfy seat though. Interior is retro, so are their choices. When it comes to alternatives which is kind...More

It's been long 10 years that Maingold offers Frankfurter superb coffee with homemade cakes. The place is decorated as an appartment with lots of old (antique?) sofas, chairs and couches. In summer you can enjoy the little garden outside. In the downtown of Frankfurt and...More
