Enter Cafe Reichard, just off the Köln Cathedral plaza, and it will be difficult to make a decision. You'll want them all, and one in our party finished one cake and ordered a second. We settled on Zhahn Kuchen, Gooseberry with meringue, Chocolate Grand Marnier and then a serving of sour cherry flan. Coffee and Caffé Macciatto were served on... More

I met a friend for coffee and cakes and we just sat and chatted outside with the wonderful Dom just across the way. Service was pleasant and I didn't feel rushed even although it was busy, being a beautiful day. Not too expensive considering the location and their cakes were delicious.

We stopped in to visit to washroom ( beautiful) and left with a delicious piece of cherry pie to-go. Our friends had the rhubarb custard which they said was also delicious. We toured around Cologne and then came back for another round!

Very nice cafe in old style, reminds me of cafes in Budapest. Very tastefully decorated with waitresses in traditional costume. Very well priced for a cafe of this stature and its position by the cathedral. Service was good and coffee was excellent. The cakes though are the star and the rhubarb pie I had was the best I have ever... More

Just across from the magnificent façade of the Cologne Cathedral, this café restaurant of course is prime real estate. Just a shame the service in the restaurant doesn’t match the view. We were immediately herded out by one of the few servers on a busy bright Sunday afternoon with no word of apology and no attempt to have us seated.... More

Great chairs outside overlooking the Dom. We had 2 coffees, served in silver coffee pots although milk was in plastic individual cartons. I would order cappuccino next time! Cost €11

It was very bust=y the day we visited and i guess that will be the case anytime. We had a nice cup of coffee and two beautiful pieces of diet busting cake, with a tremendous view of the Dom. Coffee and cake is a big tradition in Cologne i believe, who am i too argue with tradition, we did struggle... More

Superficially the attraction of Cafe Reichard is its large outside seating area with unobstructed view of Cologne's famous cathedral. However it's real charm lies within with its luxuriously appointed restaurant with dazzling chandeliers, mirrors and marble. My wife and I have snacked here a couple of times, most recently taking an excellent tomato soup, help-yourself salad bar and a choice... More

I guess that given the location in front of the cathedral the prices might be a little higher than most other places. Large area with plenty of tables with probably the best view in Calogne. Only had coffee as we found that the staff were very busy and further service was a waste of time when you don't have time... More
