Coffee isle                      Monday-Friday                                 9.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m.

Our Cafeteria will stay closed for the time being.

Our offer is still limited for the time being. For further information please consult the menu!

The gastronomic free-flow concept applies here. Customers can combine their meals individually with several components. A “quick dish” - a complete meal - is available for people in a hurry though. The Mensa furthermore includes a salad buffet and a pasta counter. Front-cooking stations like wok and BBQ as well as a varied dessert bar top the Mensa’s range off. If the weather is nice, you can enjoy coffee and cake on the terrace or at the Cafeteria.
