The monastery café in the former forester's house

In the monastery café, walkers, visitors to the monastery, families and groups will find a beautifully situated place in the Ihlow forest for a break. Use the opportunity for a leisurely hour with a cup of East Frisian tea and a piece of the by now legendary home-baked cakes or pies in a cosy atmosphere.

Before or after visiting the café, you can also visit the monastery site and take an unforgettable look over a large part of East Frisia from the viewing platform on the wood-steel reconstruction.

The monastery café is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Closed on Mondays (exception: Easter Monday, 1 May and Whit Monday).

Please note:
Changed opening hours due to corona-related restrictions can be found on our website under "News" !

If you would like to visit the monastery café with a group or celebrate with your family or business, we will be happy to arrange the gastronomy for you. Of course, this can also be an appointment outside of our usual opening hours! Reservations and/or group arrangements can be booked with Irmgard Reuter at: 0 49 29 - 91 59 49 or 04929 – 1680.
