This is a lovely little cafÃ© situated on the âbalconyâ of Meissen, in the shadow of the cathedral. The tables on the terrace overlook the whole valley and provide a wonderful spot to take in the scenery. The menu concentrates on cakes and light dishes, all quite delicious. Service is absolutely charming.

Located on a picturesque square in old Meissen, the Zieger Bakery was where we sampled the Meissen Fummel Cake. This local specialty originated in the 18th century when the Elector of Saxony requested that a very fragile cake be created that his messengers would have to deliver to him in one piece. The messengers had a reputation of becoming drunk and disorderly from the excellent Meissen wines and irresponsible in their travels as representatives of Elector Augustus in Dresden. The cake is like an edible balloon with a paper thin crust dusted with powdered sugar and completely hollow. Sweet, but not filing, better to opt for the tortes.

Average pizzas to reasonable prices. Started outside; but before serving we was "forced" to go inside due to a tropic rainstorm. The server (and we) took all this in great spirit.Good dark draft beer.
Very friendly and knowledgable family business. Chatty and friendly service with the possibility to order what you would like.
