    Cafe Hübner

    Cafe Hübner is a branch of the bakery of the same name, at home in nearby village Eschdorf. They look back at a tradition of 125 years. The cafe in Schönfeld exists since 1996.

    The interior is modern, cosy, and when I visited it was frequented mostly by locals - which is a good sign. Service was very friendly, quick and attentive. Prices are very reasonable.

    Opening hours:
    April - Oct: Mon - Sat 6.15 - 18.00 / Sun 13.00 - 18.00
    Nov - Mar: Mon - Fri 6.15 - 18.00 / Sat 6.15 - 11.00 / Sun 13.30 - 17.00
    And open during Christmas market in Schönfeld!

    Favorite Dish: I had chocolate Stollen, a specialty at Christmas season - yummy! - with a cup of coffee for 3.10 Euro. A steal.

    Wintergarten-Caf��
    4 more images

    As the name indicates, these are restaurants right next to the palace - actually in buildings that were parts of the palace ensemble, former economy buildings from the 18th/early 19th century. Nowadays a four-star hotel is here, they also run the restaurants.

    I have not had a meal in their fancy "Kaminrestaurant" yet. But I've been to the "Wintergarten-Café" twice, both times it was a pleasant experience. Ambience is elegant, rather stylish, the food is a bit more fancy than average, the service is really good. Prices are also higher than average, though :( but if you pick a lunch offer or special 3-course dinner or so then it is justified.

    Another option is the beergarden, which is self-service. Nice location vis-a-vis the palace, always busy, in the shade under trees. Food is hearty, nothing to write home about but filling. Prices are lower than in the Wintergarten-Café but still higher than average - no suprise given the location. UPDATE: In April 2013 I had coffee and a piece of apple cake there. Unfortunately the coffee was not good, just bitter. The apple cake was obviously from a big industrial bakery (confirmed by the staff later) and tasted - blah. *Way* overpriced for the quality, a rip-off for tourists.

    Oberer Gasthof Niederpoyritz

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gasthof Niederpoyritz

    Very charming restaurant. Cosy, familiar ambience. Very good Hungaro-Austrian food at reasonable prices. Better make reservations since they have only 32 seats inside. Summer garden and parking.

    opening hours:
    Mon - Fri 11 - 14.30 and 17.30 - 23 h
    Sat/Sun 11-23 h

    Favorite Dish: We had roasted lamb with ratatouille and a sort of dumplings. Very tasty. Red wine from Hungary was excellent.

    UPDATE: The place is closed (2013) - no idea when or if at all it is going to reopen.

    Wippler's Backwirtschaft in Pillnitz
    4 more images

    This is one of the nicest cafes/bakeries/pastry shops in Dresden. Wippler is a family business that is at home in Pillnitz but has several cafes and shops all over the northeastern areas of Dresden - their cafe at Körnerplatz in Loschwitz probably the best known (and most charming). They look back on more than 100 years of family tradition!

    Here in Pillnitz, near the steamboat station, a short walk upstream from the palace grounds, they bought an old farmhouse with barn a couple of years ago and turned it into a modern (show-)bakery with a restaurant on several levels inside and a nice courtyard where you can sit outdoor.

    The combination of old and new inside is pretty interesting. The only problem is that the waitresses have to climb a lot of stairs ... which occasionally results in slow service upstairs. Otherwise no complaints - always super friendly, attentive and competent. They have a large selection of yummy cakes/fancy cakes, but also small snacks for lunch.

    Open Mon - Sat 6 - 19 h, Sun 7 - 19 h

    Favorite Dish: I've had several cakes and snacks on my many visits there. My favourite was a Zwiebelkuchen (onion cake) for lunch, but to choose a favourite cake is tough ... maybe the Rüebli cake (carrot cake) after a Swiss recipe. The tea is always delicous, just like the latte macchiato.

    Parkcafe

    A short walk outside the Palace and garden grounds (exit near the English pavillion) is this nice, small cafe. It is located right on the main street coming from Dresden. The house was bought by the Royal family's physician and famous painter Carl Gustav Carus in 1832 for his summer stays in Pillnitz. So the house has a history, and it has kept its charm.

    There is a terrace, a bit elevated above the street, and there is an indoor room, of course. Both are lovely. Service is friendly, attentive and quick (family run).

    Open daily 11.30 am - 11 pm, Nov - March closed on Wednesdays.
    Limited parking right in front, streetside, free, or at the large parking (fee) only 200 m away.

    Favorite Dish: They serve regional food, but I was there for coffee and cake - yummy. Plum cake and latte macchiato. Prices are average, very reasonable given the location.

    Elbterrasse Wachwitz

    by german_eagle Written Oct 27, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    river view (with steamer) from the garden

    One of my favourite restaurants in Dresden. Unique location, in the charming quiet village Wachwitz, right by the river. Magical ambience in the evening and especially in mild summer nights. Large (heated) terrace, where you can sit under the trees and watch the steamboats pass by on the river ...

    Very good service, excellent food.

    Accessible by bus No. 83 from Schillerplatz.

    They also have a few rooms, very quiet and comfortable, with lake view, partly balcony. A double with breakfast about 80 - 90 Euro, so a little pricey.

    Favorite Dish: Anything! Especially fish is excellent. Very good local wine.
