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

Perfect location and good selection of patisseries. Haven't got a chance to try the foods but cakes that we tried are great. For price and portion itself,comparing where we live in Dubai is affordable with better taste.

We came here on a VERY wet day & it fitted the bill completely. It is light and airy with an opulent ambience inside (a true Coffeehouse experience). Given that they were not busy due to the weather, the waiting staff were attentive and friendly without being too obtrusive. If you go through to the shop area, you can survey... More

My friends decided to start our Sunday with cakes and cappuccino, and was really good choice cafe Reichard! Cakes left us without words and also cappuccino was really good! Since it's really touristic and looks bit snobby... I was scared about the waiter, but I was totally wrong! Really kind person! If you visit Koln you can't miss this cafe

You wont get a better view of Cologne Cathedral than this. Its an amazing place to have cake and coffee or tea. Its pricey but these snacks are so worth it. Please dont miss out on the bathrooms!!! Another cool experience! Must try!!!

The cafè is located where you have a real good view of the Dom if you sit outside. My husbands chocolate cake melted in his mouth like butter he said. My peach with a vanilla cream filling was sooooooo gooooood. It is a little more expensive than other cafès but....it was worth every cent. AND, you've got to go to... More
