In general yes, you can smoke in many bars/cafés. They either have separate rooms, or they are smoking places in general.
For restaurants this is not really common. Mostly, you can smoke there, if they have an outside area but not inside.

Hope that makes sense.

Watch out for signs like "Raucherlokal", "Raucherbereich", "Rauchergaststätte"...

Normally there is a little symbol für smoking ( a burning cigarette ) and for non-smoking (burning cigarette is crossed). If you don't see a symbol, you may ask. Most people will understand your question in english. In german say : Darf man hier rauchen ?
