Meissen porcelain and the exceptional wines grown in the hills of the Elbe Valley in Saxony are deeply intertwined with the traditions of the region – a cultural landscape that was significantly influenced by August the Strong more than 300 years ago. This influence is characterized by the mixture of international ideas and a deep connection to the region – a spirit that MEISSEN continues to uphold to this day. Located in the foyer of the House of MEISSEN®, Café MEISSEN® serves contemporary cuisine that is at once cosmopolitan and uniquely Saxon, thanks to the use of speciality products from the region. The nearby historic city centre of Meissen, with its Baroque architecture, cathedral, and the Albrechtsburg – Germany’s oldest palace – boasts a variety of cultural events for visitors from around the world.

The Café MEISSEN® menu changes monthly and features Mediterranean-influenced dishes, traditional Saxon cuisine, and specialities from the region such as Meißner Winzerschinken – ham that is cured in local wines and then air-dried – and cheese from the Elbe Valley. The menu also features delicious rosé, white, and red wines from regional wineries as well as beers from local breweries. For coffee or afternoon tea, the café offers a variety of pastries and cakes, including the house speciality, Meissen Torte, featuring Meissen’s signature Crossed Swords.
