One of our favourite places in Cologne.

Best place for atmosphere while having breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or just coffee and just to chill out.

Had an omelete that was really tasteful but the coffee that came with it was dreadful! Anyway, overall experience was good.

Love the many choices for healthy or classic breakfast. Good breads, excellent cappuccinos and lattes, all kinds of eggs/omelets. The location is also easy to reach from anywhere in town. Overall a great choice for those who want quality, location and choices.

In Cologne this is our favourite place for breakfast so far. It is conveniently located in the center of the city and it has a wide choice of breakfasts. I would go there to have a brunch or cup of coffee too.

Went there this morning for breakfast and I had the Stammer Max which was delicious and very tasty with a very nice freshly squashed orange juice, also a cafe latte which was top!! The services was excellent and very friendly staff, all in all a super place to have your breakfast and chill out.

We were looking for a place where we can drink a really good coffee and it wasn't that. Instead, the breakfast was amazing...too bad for the coffee. Overall, this is a very cool place with a great vibe and tasty food, but for coffee lovers could be a disappointment .

We went to Cafe Rico for a late lunch. We were tired and hungry and happened upon Cafe Rico by chance and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. We had several items from the daily menu, the mediterranean flammkuchen, pumkin soup and spargel, tomato, & mozzerella salad. Presentation, flavors and freshness were perfect. For our kids, we...

In between the trending "Brusseler" quarter and, as an indicator, the Walter König bookstore, Rico - with its small sidewalk terrace and the clean, cosy inner space, ... is always filled with happy and/or quiet people, ... chatting, reading. For coffee, breakfast, a snack, ... a perfect, tucked-away spot perfectly poised on the "Kölner map."
