There is no but here.

A former cafe can be helpful as a landmark as well. Especially when it's 
a free standing building (e.g. in a forest) near a larger city, which is 
not that uncommon in germany.

If you stand in front of it, you'll now this once was a cafe. Larger 
paved area in front, view to a lake, maybe even chairs piled and locked, ...
