good mix of neighborhood feel with tourist. More cities need a cafe like this one for a late afternoon coffee and or breakfast

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."

Excellent Café atmosphere with delicious breakfast plates and coffees. Slightly expensive, but totally worth a visit. Would recommend and go again.

Really nice food, good service and a great location. A brilliant spot for brunch or coffee and cake and right in the town centre too. Always busy, and good value for money too.

Good location and atmosphere with nice food and several healthy options. Perhaps more expensive than some other places for breakfast/brunch but still reasonable value considering the quality of the food.

I'm never one to be at the back of the queue when there are good cakes to be had, and this place certainly fits the bill with it's array of tempting goodies. On the day I went for a rhubarb, great choice, this could easily have been dry with little fruit, but it was so moist and packed full of... More

We took 2 breakfasts here because we read some very positive reviews in Tripadvisor. First of all you have to know that the prices were relative high (from €6 to €11 without any hot beverage) which was higher than our hotel's breakfast buffet (€9) (we had some regrets ^^). The breakfast itself was okay (no buffet) but don't worth such... More
