Great place - great breakfast!

A lovely place that seemed to have everything you need for a great start to wondering around Cologne. Open plan, the smell of the onsite bakery, wonderful coffee and really helpful staff. Try the eggs and bacon!

Great place for brunch in the centre of Köln: a wide selection of homemade breads, pastries and cakes, topped up with all the traditional brunch dishes (ham, cheese, scrambled eggs...). The place is large, with a lot of tables, though it can get quite crowded on the weekends. The staff are nice and friendly, which helps create a relaxing atmosphere.... More

My partner and I had a late breakfast at 1100 hours on Saturday in a very crowded and busy cafe. Given its popularity and positive reviews there's the usual long queue. The service is good albeit relatively slow due to the volume of orders. The menu is very extensive and caters to almost every personal preference. We truly enjoyed the... More

Yummy breakfast/brunch - huge selection of meats, cheeses, egg, bacon, fruit. The scrambled eggs are very good as are all the breads and croissants. Good hangover brunch after NYE :)

This place is brilliant for brunch. A tad pricey for Cologne but same as you would pay in London. Portions were very big and the coffee was excellent.

Bastian's is a really nice place to eat sth fast and to drink coffee. I certainly recomend the gulash soupe, as it is served inside a bread ! Resonable prices. Only disadvantage, but only in my opinion, there is a lot of noise from people talking really loud.

Ok let's be clear, on average breakfast costs 11 euro's but included freshly baked bread and great great coffee. Next day tried a different cheaper place but this actually worked out more expensive when we included the pretty naff coffee. Bastians coffee was very very superior. We had omelette and a huge fried breakfast. Great stuff and regret not going... More

Popped in here for lunch after wandering round a couple of Christmas markets. Very busy, and clearly family friendly as there were several small children running around, but at times they were in danger of colliding with the waiting staff, so it was a bit stressful. I chose the broccoli and mushroom tart from the specials board. It was a... More

I visited this venue from time to time, mostly for the breads. The coffee n cakes are ok. Ambiance is kinda cantine-like. There are surely much better cafe around.

We came to Bastian's twice - once for breakfast and once for afternoon tea. It's a lovely place that is quite spacious with a friendly vibe. Food is delicious - it was nice to have some healthy options on the menu too. The service is quite slow and the staff spoke good English. Also, be careful of wasps if sitting... More
