The Coffe Baum is Leipzig?s oldest coffee house. The relief over the door presents a Turkish gentleman who is served a cup of coffee by his servant. The café has several rooms in different country styles which serve the matching specialities. The upper floors around the tiny inner courtyard contain the coffee museum (free entry).

I have read complaints about the service of the place. However, I found them really friendly ? maybe because I brought my travel companion Russell the Wombat?

Tip 1: Bring a plush animal.
Tip 2: Try Kleckselkuchen which is a Saxon speciality, a cake with spots of three different toppings: cheese, cherry, and poppy seed. You get, so to say, three cakes in one and they are all yummy.
