Excellent bakery with the best croissant ever. Ambience is very cozy and quaint with option of open air seats in a garden. Good choices of bread and by far, they made the best croissants.

A peaceful little café with a nostalgic decor making it a very nice place to have a coffee with some great German cake or a soup and sandwich for lunch. I wish they had more Obst Torten as all the cakes on offer were Blechkuchen...More

I have been frequenting Dinkel for a long time. The coffee is excellent and the cakes are always amazing. The "lunch time" bread rolls with a variety of cold meats are also a good option if you want something continental. The staff are very friendly...More
