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

This is a typical trendy Cologne Cafe, with clean modern interior design, typical cafe chic fair to eat with the typical prices. There are so many cafés like this in Cologne that it's hard to say that being there is truly memorable. It's also really loud in there, and someone wrote down in a review "WASP" central. This is pretty... More

We had a lovely brunch here. The breads are delicious and everything we ordered was good. The rest of the menu also looked good, so we will be back sometime. However, we sat outside on the terrace, where there were many many wasps. As soon as the food was on the table, we had five to ten flying around our... More

The coffee came but had to wait for nearly half an hour for the food to come. When the food finally came we ordered another coffee. The second coffee arrived... More

We went here both mornings we were in Cologne because it was that good. The coffee was incredible. The barista looked liked he was having a ball while making it too. The little treats given with the coffee both mornings were delicious and indicative of the other goodies they had in their bakery. The portions were large and we did... More

Fantastic breakfast selection with insanely good bread! Great atmosphere, location and service. I'd return overnight just to brunch here and see the Koelner Dom again - one of my Germany keepers!!
