Would anybody be able to help me translate this sentence to German? 'Can you recommend a cafe where we could have coffee and cake?'

Many thanks :)

I'd expect coffee and cake to be offered in every cafe, so the second part of your question is kind of redundant.

Therefore I'd just say:

Können Sie mir ein [gutes] Café empfehlen?

If you insist on the whole sentence, you could perhaps say:

Können Sie mir ein Café empfehlen, in dem ich Kaffee und Kuchen bekommen kann?

  • In den USA ist ein Cafe oft etwas, was in Deutschland ein Restaurant wäre, daher ist der Zusatz wegen Kaffee und Kuchen für Amerikaner sinnvoll. – Robert Jan 27 '18 at 17:59

    @Robert ...welchen aber man im Deutschen doch weglassen könnte. (Am besten will man ja dies im deutschsprachigen Raum fragen, und nicht in den USA.) – c.p. Jan 27 '18 at 18:16
  • @tofro Richtig, das war nur als Ergänzung / Erklärung, weil Jürgen darüber gestolpert ist. – Robert Jan 27 '18 at 22:49
