Café Burkardt information
Lonely Planet review
Full of doily-draped tables and dark-wood crannies, this friendly cafe serves salads, German dishes, pasta and some of Heidelberg’s scrummiest tarts and cheesecakes. Also on offer are great breakfasts (€4.20 to €11.50) and about 20 wines (available by the glass) from villages right around Heidelberg. The courtyard abuts the house where Friedrich Ebert, German President during the Weimar Republic, was born.
