Relax in the shade
Why locals love it
It is authentic, student-style but open and welcoming for everyone. It has great coffee (much better s...f*cks or any other fellow) and lovely sandwiches. You can rest on couches and sofas and take a look in newspapers and magazines.
Why you should visit it
For many travellers it might be on the way to the old town and the sights Heidelberg is renown for. Just a perfect start for the day in a unique atmosphere. Don't grab your coffee to go (you may however), take a seat instead (inside or outside) and enjoy your surroundings - people and place.
