Nice café in a nice street

Next to Salon Schmitz it attracts the same kind of people (and people that want to go to the theater). A bit more relaxed than its neighbour(s) though. And also here the hospitality is refreshing!

Invited by a friend, we discovered this nice cafe with great food. The service was good, the food excellent with an excellent plate presentation, but small portion/ price compare.

I came here looking for some Wi-Fi. The coffee was pretty at least even though there was a bit of a language barrier. I asked for a mocha and the server replied with espresso? I assumed they were asking if I wanted my mocha with espresso or drip. Low & behold I get a shot of espresso instead. At least... More

This is my idea of a relaxing evening out dining. I loved the lights and the relaxed atmosphere. The food, by the way, is grand! I had a burger and it tasted delicious. The staff were also very helpful because I couldn't understand the menu and they explained it to me, patiently.

Why a potential nice place is killed because of the most terrible and arrogant service I ve never met. Also valid for the restaurant close to the cafe

Cologne’s Bauturm Café is conveniently located at the Aachener Straße, it is part of the well-known Bauturm Theater and gives an artsy vibe without being too pretentious or overly pricy – so far, so good. Unfortunately I had there the most awful brunch experience I ever made. The place was crowded, but we managed to get a nice table outside;... More

This café is just perfect for rainy Cologne days, they have the same nice breakfast as in their sister café Feynsinn at Rathenauplatz and an appetizing choice of cakes, as well as finely brewed coffee. Special features include the stylish library section, the great lusters, and in particular the great window front, that brings in plenty of daylight and invites... More
