Bastian's is a nice place, well located and with a wide offer of bread and cakes. I've been there 4 or 5 times already, but I don't go more often because it's always very noisy. The acoustics is probably bad and it's usually very full. But's it's also big and it's not hard to get a table. The service is... More

Service is really crap. The waiting staff are quite unfriendly and frankly a little rude. They make you wait for 10-15 min or longer before even recognizing you are there. Had to flag them down a few times or walk over to someone. Then they give you a look like, "what do you want from me?". How about some service... More

The number one spot for a good breakfast in the city center! Enormous selection of complete breakfasts, but you can also select and combine separate items. Breakfasts are being served until 19 o'clock! Great coffee, also (when requested) with soj milk. Nice garden to sit and eat. Fresh ingredients and home-baked bread. Overall friendly staff, had to wait for the... More

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

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.

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
