    Café Siefert, Michelstadt: World champion cakes, chocolate and pastry

    by Trekki Updated Aug 12, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In southern Hessen, this café has a fame. Bernd Siefert, the owner, has won several medals in pastry making and also the world championship some years ago. He is very active in marketing his products and the café in Michelstadt, wrote several books and gives seminars about anything related to pastry. On the first sunny weekend in March 2011, spring being in the air, I was dragging my colleague from Melbourne through Odenwald region and so it was quite logical that I wanted to stop here for coffee and cake during our brief stop in Michelstadt. It was quite crowded at the counter but we found a seat in the small café. I could do nothing to prevent my colleague from ordering Schwarzwälder Kirsch (black forest cherry cake), she said she eats that anytime she is in Germany. Cafè Siefert has such a huge variety in cakes that this cherry cake was a waste in my eyes. Well.... her choice. It was indeed very hard for me to decide but finally I ordered the orange-marsipan cake in one of my photos. We both had a latte macchiato to go with. What can I say? Yes, the cake was good, and no, I would not have thought this to be from a world champion pastry chef. I have eaten better cakes. But then, how can I judge from one cake only. Maybe it is more the very special cakes they make: unusual combinations and ingredients. There is for example a “Japanese Black Forest Cherry Cake”, but with azuki red beans instead and green matcha tea.
    In addition to cakes they sell a big variety of chocolate and pralines. I loved their orange slices and pieces of lemon peels dipped in dark chocolate. And to my surprise they also sold what they called “quince bread”: quince paste similar to Colombia’s bocadillos, the pieces made from guava paste.

    The prices for the cakes are moderate: approx. 2,90 € per piece of cake, same for a latte macchiato. Prices for chocolate are more expensive than average, but that should be expected. Note that inside the café they only accept cash and for anything from the counter they accept credit cards for anything above 20 €. When we were there (March 2011), the credit card machine was broken though. And one must pay separate: for café and for the goods from the counter, which I found strange.

    Opening hours:
    Tue-Sat: 9:00 – 18:00, Sun: 10:00 – 18:00, closed on Mondays.
    As far as I could see it is not barrier free to get inside (steps into the shop). It could be that it is wheelchair accessible in summer when they have seating outside available.

    Directions:
    From the market square with famous town hall, walk past the town hall to your right. It is on the right side of the street after approx. 100 m.

    Badenburg: Eat like the knights in Badenburg

    by Trekki Updated Aug 12, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was pleased to read that one of my most favourite dining out options during my student days is still exisiting and moreover it even has excellent recent reviews (though only in German). That’s why I dare to add this restaurant to my state of Hessen list even if I don’t have actual photos.

    Badenburg, an old castle/Fortress just a bit north of Giessen, is offering knight meals. Their menu consists of typical dishes with a touch of modern ingredients but with funny old Medieval names, such as Donnerbalken (thunderbox, outdoor privy, etc) which is hot and spicy goulash soup (3,90 €) or Eimer Knochen (bucket of bones), which is pig ribs (7,30 €) served in a bucket or their legendary Schippe Dreck (shovel of dirt) which is the breast part of the pig, grilled with salad and bread (9,00 €) served on a wooden board in form of a shovel. I am still laughing when I read the menu and realise that I must go there at a point in time to dine and take photos.

    Directions:
    On their website (left side “Kontakt”) are maps for a better orientation. From Giessen Ring (circulation motorway around Giessen) get off where it leads to road L 3475 and drive a short portion to the north until you see a sign to Badenburg, turn off here. The road leads to badenburg and almost nowhere else. Although a train track runs almost at the bottom of the castle hill, it seems that there is no stop. Nearest train station should be (town of) Lollar, approx. 2 km north of Badenburg.

    Favorite Dish: Opening hours:
    Friday to Tuesday 6 p.m. to midnight, Saturday & Sunday 11 a.m. to midnight.
    EC (Maestro) cards accepted.

    Oh, and I found at least photos in www, one is even by a Japanese traveller:
    Eimer Knochen (bucket of bones),
    Schippe Dreck (shovel of dirt).

    Weingut Schoenleber: Hotel and restaurant with charme

    by elgin99 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Comfortable and romantic hotel and restaurant with typical local charme in Oestrich-Winkel, exactly part Mittelheim. Good meals and also friendly service, with terrace from where you have a view to Rhine. And of course like everywhere... fantastic wine.
    Oestrich-Winkel, on the way to famous Rüdesheim, is a town with flair, I like it!
    (website in English)

    It is the unique Rheingau region, and you should really inform about that nice area first here: Rheingau
    All translated in English and with interactive maps.

    Restauant Messina: Heddernheim

    by Princess_Emily Written Aug 1, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I would say it's an average Italian restaurant that's open late. It's set up on a side street that makes it hard to find, but when you do find it, the food that's served is delicious.
    Open Tuesdays to Sundays 12:00-14:30 and 17:30-24:00. Closed on Mondays.

    Favorite Dish: Scaloppina in Vino Bianco. Pork fillet in white wine served with rice and green beans.

    Berggasthof Hoher Meißner: On the top - Hoher Meißner

    by elgin99 Written Oct 7, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It´s the highest restaurant and coffee on the top (750 ms) of that north region of Hesse (Kurhessen), near to Eschwege. From terrace you have an fantastic view above the hills and forest of area. The dinners are good, service is also nice. You should make a rest there after you walked, recommended.
