First-class products from our confectionery

Our award-winning confectioneries, cakes and desserts are produced by professional, well-trained confectioners and fine bakers at our Lauterbach head office in the old town of Cottbus, using traditional and handcrafted workmanship.

It is this quality of our products – and the myth of the café – which have made the “Conditorei & Café Lauterbach” famous far beyond the borders of Cottbus.

Tradition and the highest quality standards

The success of the cakes we produce is founded on the decades of experience and tradition held by our pastry chefs and confectioners. In order to keep this level of perfection, we provide for the training of young motivated people to become excellent confectioners in our café.

We carefully select the raw materials for our products and only use those which meet our demand for premium products. A visible sign of this are the annual awards from the German Agricultural Society for our baumkuchen and stollen products.
