Cafés in Dresden

This time is tea time (or coffee time of course)! Dresden is known for being the capital of the "Kaffeesachsen" as we call them in German (Coffee Saxons in English). This beautiful expression describes people who love taking a coffee in the afternoon, mostly together with a nice piece of cake, for instance the typical Dresden one: Eierschecke. The result of this cliché: beautiful cafés all over town. This article describes a few of them, but if ever you discover a non-mentioned one you like, make sure to drop it in the comments!

So, starting with the Neustadt cafés, the first one I discovered was the adorable "Tante Leuk" a newly found friend made me discover during my first week living in Dresden.

Tante Leuk

Louisenstraße 24
Monday – Friday
10am – 6pm
Saturday – Sunday
11am – 6pm

It's a cute café in the Louisenstraße, where you can get delicious coffee (also the hipster ones like “cold brew” etc.) and a great variety of self-baked cakes, muffins, brownies, you name it, including vegan ones that leave you longing for more.

If you're not so much of a sweet tooth, they also have very tasty sandwiches.

The atmosphere is really nice and should you come on weekends, make sure to be here before the rest of the crowd, otherwise you will have to go on the balcony... Well, never mind, as even with these temperatures, it is still a nice place to hang out with cushions to sit on and blankets to keep you warm. In summer time it is obviously the other way around, balcony crowded first…

Off for the next one, and to break the coffee-law, come on over to:

Martin-Luther-Straße 25

Tuesday - Saturday
12pm - 6pm
Sunday
10am - 6pm
Closed on Mondays

If Brexit is to happen, at least, we'll have this beautiful bit of English culture for safe. You can get anything you need for your UK-loving heart to beat quicker: tea, scones, sandwiches, porridge, a waving Queen...wait, what?! Yes, indeed, it's not all culinary, but there is also a nice selection of books, souvenirs, teas and what you might need to get into the right feeling for the next royal wedding, birth or whatsoever. Make sure to visit the restrooms as well (not joking, they are extraordinary) !

Oh, and of course, what is it like to be sitting here? Expect great sofas and armchairs, a very relaxed atmosphere, perfect English breakfast on weekends and really incredible cake compositions.

English breakfast is not fancy enough?

On the same square, you will find

Hellers Kuchenglocke

www.kuchenglocke.de

Pulsnitzer Str. 1
Tuesday – Saturday
8am – 7pm (kitchen closes at 6pm)
Closed on Mondays

So, although this one is called “Kuchenglocke” (cake cloche), it also has hot dishes. All in all, the Kuchenglocke is a very high-class café, all organic, as regional as possible, family tradition ever since the 1960ies, four generations busy at the café (the youngest ones with eating) …

Therefore, this is not the place to get the cheapest cakes, but the quietest conscience. The café gets you back to a different time, nice furniture and an extraordinary sofa corner (be quick to get it!). You will be served anything from German Brötchen to cookies, cakes, hot lunch, great breakfasts… As indicated above, come before 6pm if you want something fresh from the kitchen.

I really like coming here with my parents, enjoying a looooong breakfast in this classy place.

Conclusion: Not the low-budget, but the all-delicious one ;)

There are so many more cafés, that we didn't make it through all of them before publishing this, so if you're interested in coffe&co, make sure to come back to this article for up-dates.
