We read that the oldest coffee house in Europe was in Leipzig, Germany. (I also read that it’s only the second oldest. Either way, it’s old!)
So when Zack found out he’d have a few hours in between train trips with a friend earlier this year, he decided to check it out.
Coffe Baum began serving in 1694. Yeah, it’s been around awhile.
The shop, as it exists today, includes coffee, food, and a museum.
Zack had coffee and a slice of cake. He said he really enjoyed the cake. He and his friend also took a quick walk around the museum, before making their way back to the train station.
