Very good charcuterie and cheese share plate

A very busy easy going bakery/cafe and for good reason - amazing breads, pastries and charcuterie and cheese plates for a breakfast or lunch. A great established with a good vibe and crowd. Recommend for a low key, value and relaxed meal.

Absolutely loved the place! Stayed on Friesenstrasse so only a few minutes walk away. The food was amazing and the staff to match. Very clean and tasteful decor. Cannot praise highly enough so if you are in Köln then Bastian's is the place for breakfast!

Bastian's in Cologne is part of a small chain of currently four bakerys/cafes in Düsseldorf, Cologne, Salzburg and Wiesbaden. Their passion for bread extends to passion for dough in general. The lunch came with a basket of samples of various breads. Try e.g. one of the savory tarts and the Bienenstich (Bee sting cake) for dessert. The service is fairly... More

We got there on a sunday morning much before the crowds did. So we didnt have to wait for a table as the other reviews have mentioned. Great place for breakfast, coffee and cake!

We went to Bastian's after reading reviews online for breakfast in Köln because we were that unimaginative. We arrived at about 10am, at which the restaurant was packed. There we no staff to seat us or any of the guests that followed as the place was so busy. After a wait or so of 15 minutes we gave up and... More

The food was really good expecially the cheese mixed scrambled eggs. It was a full amount of tasty food. Worth 7.90euros I couldn't miss the cakes on the front too, became really full when leaving! Would like to come again

Every time I am in Koln, I visit this place. They have good coffee, good pastries and an excellent bread. I wish I had one of this near where I live. Please do not forget to buy bread here, you will regret it if you don't.

Food is very good, service is good but it is very busy. We had a scrambled egg on bread with salad. Generous portions and delicious food.
